Star war actor Oscar Isaac has been cast as Solid Snake in Sony’s long-awaited Metal Gear Solid adaption. The film is currently in development at Sony Pictures with Vogt-Roberts on board to direct and written by Derek Connolly. Avi Arad is producing. Peter Kang is the executive overseeing for the studio. Currently, no production date has been announced, but the flick has been trying to get off the ground for a while now.
The film is based on the Metal Gear Solid video game created by Hideo Kojima and published by Konami. The game was first launched in PlayStation in 1987 following a soldier “Snake”. Vogt-Roberts has now been working on the project for six whole years and has been pretty tight-lipped on the matter of the MGS movie, offering up only the smallest of updates here and there.
Isaac, who has recently portrayed Poe Dameron in the “Star Wars” sequel trilogy, expressed his interest in playing Solid Snake during a March 2019 interview. Vogt-Roberts responded by saying he was open to the idea. He had earned a Golden Globe for his role on the HBO miniseries “Show Me A Hero” and was Golden Globe-nominated for his role in the Coen Brothers’ film “Inside Llewyn Davis.”
Since the productions are not yet begun we cannot expect the movie soon, but the casting news proves that the movie will happen.
