Isn't he just over the age line if they want sequels?

Looking forward to playing Metal Gear Solid: The Movie: The Game.  But I already played Metal Gear Solid 4, so I'm not sure why.

Shouldn't it be Michael Beihn? But then he'd have to die.

Wonder if they'll try to use his likeness/voice for the rumored PS5 remake.

I liked him in Star Wars, but I am not able to picture him as Snake at all. Even trying to picture him in costume, I just can't. Even picturing him out of costume, being slowly tortured, AS SNAKE SOMETIMES IS YOU CAN LOOK IT UP THIS TOTALLY SAYS NOTHING ABOUT ME IT'S IN THE GAME, not bad, but still not Snake.

The video game series featured some of the worst writing I've ever seen in a video game.

This movie will be complete pile of suck.

This seems a bit redundant.

Metal Gear games are already movies.

When it comes to movies, there's only one Snake:

They got away with ripping it off for the game, but can they avoid a lawsuit if they actually make a movie?

They're remaking the PS5 already?

Really? When I read the headline, I immediately thought that was perfect, though unexpected, casting.

Laugh. But you all know ps5+ box art is already drafted

Incomprehensible stories, goofy characters, endless cut scenes. Sounds great!

I can understand not wanting to use David Hayter because he's getting up there and "acting" and "doing the voice" are not one and the same but I absolutely do not understand why they wouldn't get him to write it. The dude actually has legit script writing chops

He actually already wrote a script and they turned it down.

Dude can act. Star Wars doesn't showcase it at all, but he's damn good. I'd believe he can do it.

What a terrible choice. Whose next? Pee Wee Herman as Revolver Ocelot? Justin Bieber as Liquid? Margo Martindale as Meryl?
 
2020-12-04 8:47:59 PM  
So basically one really really really long  unskippable cutscene?

Mortal Kombat was decent.
Detective Pikachu was surprisingly good.

I had the same thought, but then I remembered him in Annihilation, and he gave off a completely different vibe and intensity than SW. I think he can do it, with good costuming and make-up.

Not movies, but Castlevania has turned out pretty damn good.

Shhhh....

Talk like that is how you end up with Jared Leto as Psycho Mantis.

Oh I'd watch that just to hear about the behind the scenes drama he creates.

Scarlett Johansson as Sniper Wolf to seed an MCU crossover.

Also, so this feature length film will be shorter than some of the MGS cutscenes?

In the same way the 4 hour 70s drug trip that was Dune was a movie.

Square Enix has a whole team to make Kindom Hearts a crazy mess, but Kojima is just one madlad. As long as it as entertaining as Dredd was/is, and they don't go bonkers with the convoluted crazy, I have hope. Not much, but hope.

Fair enough, but only if they cast Miley Cyrus as Raiden.

He's 40. Snake isn't known for his usefulness, but is known for being an old ass man at points.

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: Incomprehensible stories, goofy characters, endless cut scenes. Sounds great!


It's a movie. I don't think "endless cut scenes" are a factor.

Never got into Metal Gear Solid, but I might consider watching it with Oscar in it. He's a great actor who's also pretty easy on the eyes. And he can sing.

It's a "Hideo Kojima game", that's his thing along with cut scenes overload. And when he is not restrained by a studio and is allowed to do his own thing, you get 'Boring Pretentious Fart: The Game' also known as 'Death Stranding'.
The game reviews were very amusing, trying very hard to avoid addressing the elephant in the room, the game being a boring delivery simulator with very pretty graphics and pretentious cut scenes and horrible writing.
Also the main character's name is Sam Porter Bridges. It's like calling a medical simulation character Fred Doctor McSurgeon.
