In some Sony Pictures news we’ve learned that Oscar Isaac is set to play Solid Snake in their upcoming live-action Metal Gear Solid film. To quote what we know about this upcoming film
“The film is based on the 33-year-old “Metal Gear Solid” video game franchise, created by Hideo Kojima and published by Konami. The script is written by Derek Connolly. Avi Arad is producing. Peter Kang is the executive overseeing for the studio.
The game, launched on the PlayStation in 1987, follows Solid Snake, a soldier who infiltrates a nuclear weapons facility to neutralize the terrorist threat from Foxhound, a renegade special forces unit.”
As someone who hasn’t had the chance to play this game. I’m excited to see how well this will be adapted to the live-action format. I feel Oscar Isaac would do a great job in the role. He’s been cast in multiple upcoming projects so I feel he has more than enough star power to bring in an audience outside of the gaming community. While there’s a lot of gamers out there, we need to keep in mind that this movie will be made to bring in a new audience. So please be kind to those that are getting into Metal Gear Solid via this film.
