So this is interesting. Kojima was just on twitter expressing his love for the new movie "A Place beyond the pines" saying:
"Place Beyond The Pines". This movie has given a special feeling to me who lost father in youth. I especially recommend boys to watch - Source
He then went on to say:
"I want to do 3D capture Ryan Gosling and Norman Reedus and make game with them." -Source
So here is my question. With Beyond two souls having Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe billed right on the front of the box do you think with advanced motion capture stuff like Fox Engine we will see the rise of Hollywood Actors being billed on the front of game boxes as the norm?
I mean we've obviously seen actors take involvement in stuff before like Vin Deisel being billed on the front of Wheelman but that was also made by Tigon studios which was founded by Disel himself. I'm more specifically talking about video games actually attracting actors who normally wouldn't have anything to do with the medium.
It might have just been an off the cuff thought from Kojima but I think Ryan Gosling and Kojima together could be well... interesting. I think Kojima is also one of the few guys in the industry that knows how to split the cinematography aspect of games and the actual GAME part of the games in a way that doesn't make the game feel like an obtuse un-fun thing and the story not feel like it was haphazardly thrown together around a mechanics based game.
You can say what you want about Metal Gear Solid's story being crazy and convoluted but Kojima specifically had themes for each game which he absolutely got across.
GENE, MEME, SCENE, SENSE , PEACE were the themes of his games they weren't just words they were ideas that were explored albeit with a heavy dose of Kojima crazy.
So... I'm probably looking way to much into what is a simple series of tweets but I think it might be an interesting idea and could be the turn the medium needs to get out of the mindset that video games = Call of Duty and Wii Sports. Thoughts? Anyone? I can't be the only one that thinks something like this could be potentially cool.
