At the PAX 2012 panel Hideo Kojima talked a little bit about the upcoming Metal Gear Solid movie, produced by Avi Arad. It is still in a very early stage, so Kojima couldn’t really share any details yet. He did mention he wants to take his time with the project and make sure it’s right. He is not directing himself though.
When asked what actor he’d like to see take the role of Snake, he mentioned Hugh Jackman or Tom Hardy. But he also noted this was just a personal wish list, and nothing official.
