Metal Gear Solid is a beloved video game for the PlayStation, which will now get its own live-action adaptation for cinema.
Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts is said to be directing the film. The work on the film has been going on since 2014 but even then, the information regarding the movie is scarce. Over the years, Jordan Vogt-Roberts has released some pieces of art from the film. But recently, he shared a cool fan-made poster.
This amazing art from the franchise shows various characters in the series. We could see Snake and his father Big Boss filling most of the space. Other iconic supporting cast members were also seen such as Gray Fox, Psycho Mantis, Liquid Snake. A teaser video featuring the work done by Industrial Light and Magic was also shown.
If you’re not familiar with the Metal Gear Solid Video Game, then here’s what it is about. The story follows Solid Snake who is a retired soldier. He infiltrates a nuclear weapons disposal facility. This is done to neutralize the terrorist threat from Foxhound. He attempts to save two hostages and the president of a major arms manufacturer and prevents from launching of a nuclear strike.
Metal Gear Solid movie concept art has shown a huge walking tank, Metal Gear REX, that has the ability to shoot nuclear missiles. The art shows that it’s been beautifully recreated for the live-action movie, being one of the big bad guys.
These cool new images have indicated that the focus of the movie will be the Shadow Moses incident in 1998. This will be the same as seen in the Metal Gear Solid game on PlayStation. Vogt-Roberts has announced that the screenplay for the movie has been completed. However, despite their early works on the project, the production has stalled due to the coronavirus pandemic. These scheduling complications will lead to delays.
However, Vogt-Roberts has continued to express his excitement about the film and he feels it will be a new frontier not only for him as a filmmaker but to the audiences as well. We expect to hear more from the creators about the further development of the film.
