The script for the Metal Gear Solid movie is finished, director Jordan Vogt-Roberts revealed in an interview with IGN. The screenplay was written by Derek Connolly, who previously worked on movies like Jurassic World and Kong: Skull Island (also directed by Vogt-Roberts).
Talking about the movie, Vogt-Roberts said:
“We actually just turned in the script… and I think it’s one of the best scripts I’ve ever read. It’s one of the coolest, weirdest, most ‘Kojima’ things. Even me being involved in it, I look at it as someone who was, like, I would make the hell out of this movie. But if I wasn’t involved in it, I would still look at that script and be like ‘holy shit’!”
