Oscar Isaac Cast as Solid Snake in METAL GEAR SOLID Movie

The long-gesting big screen adaptation of ‘Metal Gear Solid’ looks to be finally moving forward, with Oscar Isaac (‘Dune,’ ‘Moon Knight,’ ‘Francis and The Godfather’) closing a deal to play franchise hero Solid Snake.

Based on the top-selling action-adventure stealth series created by Hideo Kojima and published by Konami, the story follows Solid Snake, a soldier who must infiltrate a nuclear weapons facility to neutralize the terrorist threat from Foxhound, a renegade Special Forces unit. The game has spawned numerous sequels, prequels and spin-offs, including several games, a radio drama, comics, and novels.

Jordan Vogt-Roberts (‘Kong: Skull Island,’ ‘The Kings of Summer’) is attached to direct the adaptation, with Avi Arad (‘The Amazing Spider-Man,’ ‘Avengers Assemble’) producing.
