Metal Gear fans can breathe a sigh of relief this morning because the movie that has been in limbo for a few years now is still happening. Or so says producer Avi Arad. In an exclusive interview with Den of Geek while promoting his latest flick The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Arad states that the ball has officially began rolling on the Metal Gear Solid movie:
“Believe it or not, after a decade, we are now literally starting to develop the script, the director. It took a long time to close this deal. It’s now done, finished, the vision is in place.”
While this is certainly a step in the right direction Arad was careful not to mention any names that may be linked with the project. He didn’t give up any writers or the director that is currently in place, so expect plenty of rumours coming our way very soon. The producer also hinted that the Uncharted movie is almost ready to get the green light:
“Uncharted has a great script, has an excellent director…And we have really high hopes. It’s fun feel, quite intelligent. So that’s going very well. To give you production dates I can’t, but we when we come back we’ll settle some of the issues
Presumably once the sizzle of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 dies down we will hear more news about these two upcoming exciting projects.
