Hideo Kojima Might Work on Metal Gear Solid Movie Script
Back in August, Konami and Metal Gear Solid creator and founder of Kojima Productions Hideo Kojima announced that a Metal Gear Solid movie was in the works. Given his creation of the franchise and design work on the games, it’s possible that Kojima will be working on the movie’s script, or so he said.
During today’s Metal Gear event in Tokyo, Kojima was out and about the event discussing the franchise, especially the major differences that stand out between it being a movie and a game. Kojima, interestingly, does not have final word on the film, but did mention that he’s tossing around the idea of working on its script.
In his mind, he wouldn’t be against calling it simply, ‘Metal Gear Solid.’
Producer on the project, Ari Avad, though, took a liking to the name “Project Ogre”, the same codename used for one of Kojima’s in-progress projects. At today’s event though, Kojima very firmly stated that the movie is “not” Project Ogre, and that Project Ogre is something else entirely.
We, like other outlets, think it’s the codename for the recently revealed Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, or possibly the also newly revealed Fox Engine.
Regardless, it appears the movie is quite a ways out, even though we’ve been discussing it quite frequently lately. As long as it has Snake in a cardboard box at some point in the flick, we’ll consider it brilliant.
