Anyone who owns MGS5 on Steam has access to this half-hour featurette praising what Kojima has done with the Metal Gear series. Metal Gear Solid Legacy on Steam
The first talking head you see, and the one who keeps popping up the most, is Nicolas Winding Refn. More than Kiefer, more than Harry Gregson-Williams, this doc keeps cutting back to this Danish art house director. He's not just talking about Kojima's work, he's talking about hanging out together in LA and how they have similar family lives.
Now maybe I'm crazy but I find this very interesting and very suggestive. What cutscenes there are in Ground Zeroes/Phantom Pain are so different in style to Kojima's old games. Long camera movements, brutal dispassionate violence, and a protagonist who is suddenly very quiet and brooding. Kojima's cinematic tastes have changed. He's not so into 80's blockbusters anymore, instead he made "Only God Forgives" into an open world game.
(Some absurdly NSFW language in this clip)
Venom Snake is now the taciturn instrument of other people's will for revenge. Was Refn already collaborating with Kojima on MGS5, as Del Toro was going to with Silent Hills? Was a Metal Gear movie closer to actually being filmed, with Refn directing, Kiefer Sutherland starring, and Avi Arad producing? Could the movie still happen, and this featurette is hinting at it? Spin up the Speculatron!
