Oscar Isaac has been cast in Metal Gear Solid
Oscar Isaac cast in the Sony Pictures action film Metal Gear Solid. Isaac has been cast as Solid Snake, “a former Green Beret and a highly skilled special operations soldier engaged in solo stealth and espionage missions…[a former member of the] elite special forces unit FOXHOUND…Snake possesses an IQ of 180, and is fluent in six languages. Solid Snake has been on the battlefield for most of his life, and says that it is the only place he feels truly alive. He is a hardened veteran, he has his emotions buried very deep inside himself during his missions, every one of which has different motives.”
The film will be based on a popular video games series created by Hideo Kojima and published by video game publisher Konami.
The plot of the 1996 game (entitled Metal Gear Solid) may be what the film is based on:
The year is 2005, six years after the downfall of Zanzibarland. A renegade genetically-enhanced special forces unit, FOXHOUND, has seized a remote island in Alaska’s Fox Archipelago codenamed “Shadow Moses”, the site of a nuclear weapons disposal facility. FOXHOUND threatens to use the nuclear-capable mecha, Metal Gear REX, against the US government if they do not receive the remains of Big Boss and the ransom of $ 1 billion within 24 hours. Solid Snake is forced out of retirement by Colonel Roy Campbell to infiltrate the island and neutralize the threat.
Derek Connolly wrote the screenplay for the Jordan Vogt-Roberts-directed film. “Avi Arad is producing. Peter Kang is the executive overseeing for the studio.”
There is no production start date yet for Metal Gear Solid. No theatrical release date has been announced for the film.
