Oscar Isaac cast as Solid Snake in upcoming Metal Gear Solid movie

The Metal Gear Solid movie has been talked about and “in the works” for years, but we haven’t seen any significant movement towards production until now.

According to Deadline, Oscar Isaac (Star Wars VII-IX, X-Men: Apocalypse) has been cast in the lead role, Solid Snake, with production set to begin soon, although not a specific date has been decided. The movie will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Kong: Skull Island) and written by Derek Connolly (Jurassic World, Kong: Skull Island, Star Wars IX).

There’s no word if the movie will follow any of the game narratives over the years or if it will be a brand new story and adventure featuring Solid Snake.

Oscar Isaac has been pretty busy lately. He’s also portraying Marc Spector aka Moon Knight in the upcoming and anticipated Disney + series, Moon Knight, based on the Marvel comic.

For those who may have forgotten, Vogt-Roberts directed the live-action trailer for Destiny 2, back in 2017, giving us a taste of what a Destiny movie could look like. Check it out below:
