Metal Gear Solid Movie Details Revealed

Last year Konami revealed that work had begun on a Metal Gear Solid movie. "I have received many offers to adapt Metal Gear Solid. It has taken a long time, but we have finally settled on an arrangement," Kojima said in a statement. Since then nothing has been said on the matter, for eight months, the 'winner' of Metal Gear movie rights has been unknown.

Yair Landau, Vice President of Sony Pictures Entertainment today confirmed that it was Sony making the film, although declined to comment on who would be directing it. Last year saw the loss of the Halo Movie due to financing issues. There is also a World of Warcraft game currently in development at Warner Bros.

Landau also hinted the Metal Gear Solid movie may just be the beginning. "There are other games we are looking to develop," the executive said. "We're working with one of my favorite producers right now on an idea for an EverQuest movie." The producer was apparently of such stature that Landau declined to name him. "I'll let him disclose that," he said cryptically speaking to Gamespot.

Personally, I'm quite excited by this news, this game lends itself to cinematic storytelling, so if done right, it could become a great action movie.

Can not believe my prediction came true. I predicted in 2002 a movie for Metal Gear Solid will come. Here it is coming to theaters very soon. Yipee. I just wish all the MGS series comes to PC. The music in MGS and the story is very touching.

Wow!! I predicted in 2001, that a PS3 would eventually come out!! And last year, that a GoW sequel would be made!!

We are both genius.

I'd really like to see a CG of it so that they can have David Hayter play Snake's voice once again. I don't believe there's an actor good enough to play as Snake.

It likely won't be based off the games, prolly a spin off of what happened between say 1 and 2. or what happened after 2 that led up to 4 (ignoring 3)

I think it will be amazing if its done right, the game itself is like a movie and the story has always been so good, I hope they do it right.

If you take into account that "3" is a prequel to "1", that's not far fetched to ignore it and go and explain what happens between 2 and 4, 'cause chronologically, that's the order: 3-1-2-4.

I hope they use MGS 1 or 3's story as a base (or direct port to film). If they use MGS 2, I'm going to be ****ed. And, an Everquest movie would suck. If you want a fantasy movie like that go watch Lord of the Rings.

Pfft, the games were practically interactive movies anyway with the lengths of half of the cut-scenes (I'm looking at you, MGS2!).
