Kojima talks about exploring different careers, and the Metal Gear Solid movie

In an interview with gaming magazine Edge, Hideo Kojima talked a bit about his career, and about other things he’d still like to do.

“I am turning 50 this year, and while I love game development, it’s quite a time in my life where I’d like to explore other things. I love games, but I don’t necessarily like the management of the business aspect of working for a company. There are many things I’d like to do – for example maybe take a year off and write a novel. I’ve also gotten offers to work on various movies, and to make movies, so those are things that I’d love to explore at some point in my life.”


Kojima also talked about the Metal Gear Solid movie that is in the works right now. He explained he doesn’t want to choose a director who has too much of a background making movies.

“I want to find someone who’s fresh and new, and have someone who can really grow into this movie as their first role. I’m working with the producer of this project, Avi Arad, and he’s come to me with various offers, saying that there are a lot of Hollywood actors who want to be Snake in the movie.

But, that said, I’m reluctant to find somebody who’s a big name action hero because I want to find somebody who can grow with Snake in the movie, not somebody who has an established image before coming to the project. We want somebody to come in who can grow along with Snake as a fellow human being.”

    This guy is too smart for games. Let him do whatever he wants, he is a real quality maker.

      Exactly, my respect for him continually grows. He just has such a good perspective and attitude for these things..

    I think Kojima should be the Director if the film will be made, I would love to see what he was capable of doing. I have thought before though, that with all the magic of Metal Gear I have doubt that real actors and settings could really pull it off. Especially if I compare it to the idea of a MGS film that was animated with the fox engine or something (allow me to dream). I will keep an open mind though and embrace whatever is to come from Kojima or MGS.
