A Metal Gear film in the works huh?

Just a simple hero
Psycho Mantis: "I see you like watching The Green Mile."
The New Age of Awesome is here! Not even the sky is the limit!
Psycho Mantis is an odd one to work in film. I guess he could mess around with the film projector like Tyler Durden in that one scene in Fight Club.

Well, they didn't specifically say which game they were drawing from.
More inhuman scum? NEXT!
Psycho Mantis: "I see you like watching The Green Mile."

"I didn't know the controller was supposed to be in the second port."

War ALWAYS changes. Man does not.
What's the point? The first game in particular had the player as the star in the movie.

This will be groovy.

Be creative
Huh. I was just talking to my brother about how the original metal gear solid film plans fell through. I guess Hideo never gave up. Dude really likes the cinematic angle.
He'd want you do be doing something awesome right now.

[up]That is actually a pretty fair description of the Metal Gear titles.

4? As if. Each Act in GOP should count as a movie; the game is longer than the Director's Cut of the LotR trilogy. Plus, you forgot Peace Walker.

IOU one title
But how will they deal with the infodumps? I hope they just skip over them.
They'd be best off going for an original story set in the Metal Gear universe, rather than rehashing any of the games. Some other adventure of either Solid Snake or Big Boss.
Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.

Pure cuteness
I'm hoping for a loose adaptation of Metal Gear, with a rookie Solid Snake as the hero, and Big Boss as his mission command/secret main villain.

You know, Psycho Mantis would work with 4-D technology.

I jinxed us. I talked about game directors and developers having delusions of being movie makers since the NES and now an NES era game is getting what will most likely be a crappy movie, or a somewhat decent movie everyone will find crappy anyway (Final Fantasy: Spirits Within)

I suppose it could be good but it's not like those cut scenes were particularly enjoyable to begin with. Or maybe their making a movie of the novelization (as if), that might work...but then the novelization already exists, I'd rather just read that.

...Metal Gear wasn't technically an NES game.

I mean, it was, sorta, but.

It was an MSX 2 game a year beforehand.

Okay, so game developers and directors who thought they could make movies is older than the NES. Got it.

Let's-a go!
Seeing as how there's been no news on this for two years (and the recent bump was nothing more than a joke about Mantis), think it's safe to assume that it's gone back into Development Hell?
