Oscar Isaac on the Metal Gear Solid movie: “We want this to happen”
Oscar Isaac commented on the long development of the Metal Gear Solid movie, saying he still wants it to happen.
“We want this to happen,” Isaac said. ComicBook.com. “Being excited. What’s the script? What’s the story? What’s the take? […] But I hope it will come to fruition because there is so much potential for it. It’s an amazing game. It’s my favourite.”
Last year, Deadline reported that the project, which had been in various stages of development for a few years, was finally moving forward with Isaac in the lead, directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Kong: Skull Island).
The Metal Gear franchise was created by Hideo Kojima In the 1980s. The original Metal Gear debuted in Japan and Europe in 1987 for the MSX2 computer platform.

The series rose to prominence when Metal Gear Solid, a continuation of the franchise but in many ways considered the first game in a new series, debuted on the PlayStation in 1998.
Kojima worked on the franchise until Metal Gear Solid 5 in 2015, which marked an ignominious end to his relationship with Konamithe publisher and holder of the intellectual property of the franchise.
As that adaptation stuttered, a wave of gaming properties suitable for the big and small screen emerged. sonyit is Unexplored seen Spider Man star Tom Holland directs an adaptation of the PlayStation adventure games, originally developed by The naughty dog.
Another Naughty Dog property, The Last of Us, will soon launch its HBO series, with Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian) and Bella Ramsay (Game of Thrones).
In 2020 Sony Interactive Entertainment has created a new production studio specifically to adapt its original game properties for film and television.
Like the proposed film project, the Metal Gear Solid franchise has been dormant for some time. VGC announced last year that Konami was planning to revive itas well as other properties such as silent Hill and Castlevania. While MGS and Castlevania have remained silent, Konami revealed several new Silent Hill games this week, indicating the publisher will be returning more prominently to the console gaming space.
