A Metal Gear movie has been announced at Konami's Metal Gear 25th Anniversary event. It will be made in association with Columbia Pictures.
Avi Arad (X-Men, Iron Man, The Amazing Spider-Man) will be producing and was on stage at the event.
"For many years I fought to bring comics to theaters - and video games are the comics of today," Arad said, as reported by attendee John Ricciardi on his Twitter feed.
There are no further details at this point, but Famitsu has some photos from the event.
2012 marks the 25th Anniversary of the Metal Gear series; the 'Tactical Espionage Action' series was first launched on MSX back in 1987.
Hugh Jackman for Snake, plz. Will also accept Michael Fassbender.
<3 <3 HUGH JACKMAN <3 <3 MARKS FOR ROWDY RODDY PIPER Just when you think you know the answers, I change the questions. You ever notice Hulk Hoganís got no hair on his chest? Only friend heís got that DOES is Cyndi Lauper.
Will be interesting to see how it turns out. I remember reading that Christian Bale was interested in playing Snake a while back, but doubt that will happen now. Wonder how they will cast Big Boss as the villain too.
