Jordan Vogt-Roberts developing a Metal Gear movie!

Earlier this year Legendary Pictures followed the success of 2014's Godzilla, directed by British director Gareth Edwards (Rogue One), with the second installment in their MonsterVerse with American director Jordan Vogt-Roberts' Kong: Skull Island. With a production budget of $185 million Vogt-Roberts' precursor to 2020's Godzilla vs Kong went on to earn an amazing $566.2 million worldwide at the box office, securing not only the MonsterVerse but also Vogt-Roberts profile as an upcoming director. As Legendary Pictures continue to build their "shared universe" Vogt-Roberts is already looking toward his next big movie...

Speaking with IGN at this past weekend's San Diego Comic Con the director announced that he was working with Sony Pictures Entertainment and prolific video game designer Hideo Kojima to bring the Metal Gear series to the big screen. Vogt-Roberts declared his love for the series stating that he had handed Sony a "bible" that took him three months to produce that explained how to turn the hugely successful video game series into a cinematic experience, with suggestions from the director that the movie would avoid the pitfalls previous video game adaptations had suffered when translated into cinema.

Considering Vogt-Roberts' work on Kong: Skull Island, seeing the director helm the (oh so) long awaited adaptation of Kojima's iconic video game series is a tantalizing prospect, especially if the director can follow Kong: Skull Islands aesthetic and tell the story of the original "Snake", before his fall from grace that saw him become "Big Boss". Hopefully, the director can depict the series titular "Metal Gear" mechs in a plausible way and avoid turning them into Bay-Formers.

Sweet, been wanting them to make a Metal Gear movie for years! There's been talk for so many years. The first Metal Gear game for the original PlayStation is my favorite game of all time! Christian Bale as Snake! Although he would never do it now, hopefully this comes to fruition.
