Metal Gear Solid Movie Not Happening In The Foreseeable Future

leave a comment »

Chalk this one up alongside that ill-fated Halo movie folks as an interview run by website Collider with producer Michael De Luca, alleges that the silver screen version of Konami’s seminal stealth series Metal Gear Solid, simply won’t be happening in the foreseeable future.

In his interview with Collider he went on to say: “I don’t think it’s going to move forward because I got the sense that there may not be enough of a coordinated will at this point on the side of certain parties to see a movie get made.”

He went on to expand on his reasoning, stating that Konami are concerned about a duff movie hurting the image of the game series. “The franchise being as big as it is kind of helps the movie. I’m not sure the movie does the same thing for the game.”

De Luca added: “The videogame companies are very protective of their property and there are certain things a studio requires freedom-wise to market and distribute a movie effectively in a global marketplace and sometimes getting those two things to match up is really hard – it was just kind of impossible to get the agendas to match up.”

Well based on this and Halo’s evidence, movies based on games tend to go one of two ways; they either decide that they can’t do justice to the source material and call it a day, or the movie is released and is usually shockingly bad.
