- Solid Snake will star as the main character (duh!)
- The movie will be handled by Spider-Man producer Avi Arad through Sony Pictures/ Columbia Pictures
- Kojima will not direct the film or write the script. Instead, he will act as a creative consultant
- Kojima said Hugh Jackman was one time selected to play as Snake, but cancelled it because it was decided to cast a newcomer instead of an actor who is already famous (personally, I would love to see David Hayter as Snake).
This isn't the first time they decide to make a movie adaption of Metal Gear Solid, though. In 2010, Kojima did reveal of a possible Metal Gear movie but it was cancelled due to various reasons.
