Sony Pictures appears to have nabbed Oscar Isaac for the role of Solid Snake in the ‘Metal Gear Solid’ film adaptation.
Momentum’s turning as reports are pointing to ‘Metal Gear Solid’ netting ‘Star Wars’ alumnus, Oscar Isaac, to play the role of Solid Snake. Though, a start date is still under wraps thanks to Isaac’s already chock-full schedule.
If Deadline’s correct and the man behind Poe Dameron is putting on the eyepatch, then this will most likely skyrocket the property’s value.
Jordan Vogt-Roberts remains on-board to direct the film, which is being produced by Sony Pictures. Derek Connolly is penning the script while Avi Arad is producing and Peter Kang acts as the executive overseeing the project for the studio.
‘Metal Gear Solid’ started life as a video game on the PlayStation. Created by Hideo Kojima during his time at Konami, the game was critically acclaimed and certainly felt like a shoo-in for a film adaptation. Let’s hope it goes smoother than others in days past.
