HOLY SH*T: Columbia Pictures & Avi Arad Developing “Metal Gear” Film


During a 25th anniversary celebration in Tokyo earlier today, Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima gave fans a present unlike any other. After years of rumors and setbacks, a Metal Gear film is finally on the way with major producer Avi Arad (Founder of Marvel Studios) and Columbia Pictures.

“For many years I fought to bring comics to theater – and video games are the comics of today,” Arad told the audience in Tokyo

The idea of a Metal Gear: Solid film has been brought up before, with Paul WS Anderson being rumored to direct as recently as 2009. At this time no casting or release information has been announced. Stay tuned for more information.

  • Know who would be perfect to direct? John Woo. Think about it. Mission Impossible 2 was awful, but is the closest thing to a Metal Gear movie we have so far.

  • Honestly I think David Hayter should be Snake because of these 2 reasons. One was the voice actor for him and two because they kinda look similar to each other so it would be damn perfect!
