According to Deadline, actor Oscar Isaac, best known for Out of the Machine, Inside Lewin Davis and for his role as Poe Dameron in the latest Star Wars trilogy, has already signed a contract with Sony Pictures to play Solid Snake in the Metal Gear Solid adaptation. …
The film is directed by Jordan Vot-Roberts, best known for Kong: Skull Island. Derek Connolly, who has a hand in the Jurassic World trilogy, Detective Pikachu and the aforementioned King Kong film, is in charge of the script.
Given Isaac’s busy schedule, the production start date is still unknown. But his involvement could put film adaptation a priority for the studio.
The first game in the Metal Gear series came to the original PlayStation in 1987. The protagonist of the game is the spy Solid Snake, who was tasked with sneaking into the fortress and destroying a two-legged tank with nuclear weapons capable of reaching anywhere in the world.
