The Metal Gear Solid movie is still a long way off, but it seems that it is slowly taking shape. We say it since sources say that Oscar Isaac, an actor known for being Poe Dameron in the most recent Star Wars trilogy, has already been chosen to play Solid Snake.
The information comes from sources at Deadline, one of the most trusted media in film and television. The site only points out that Oscar Isaac is the one chosen to play Solid Snake, but that his busy schedule means that he does not yet have a production start date.
That said, the source ensures that the arrival of Isaac to the cast of Metal Gear Solid increased the priority of this film. Thus, it seems that within Sony Pictures they will get to work to make it a reality as soon as possible.
We remind you that the Metal Gear Solid movie will be the responsibility of Sony Pictures and Jordan Vogt-Robers was chosen to direct it. On the other hand, we know that the script is the responsibility of Derek Connolly, while Avi Arad is the producer. Finally, Peter Kang serves as executive producer.
At the moment it is unknown what other talents will be involved in this production. We will stay tuned and inform you when we learn more about it.
OSCAR ISAAC HAD ALREADY SHOWN INTEREST IN BEING SOLID SNAKE
One point that stands out is that Oscar Isaac had already shown his interest in playing Solid Snake. This is why many will not be surprised to hear that he was chosen to take this role.
In March 2019, Isaac had an interview with IGN. There they asked him about what adaptation of a video game to the cinema he would like to participate in. Without hesitation, he mentioned that he wanted to be in the Metal Gear movie and even volunteered for the role.
Something that is striking is that BossLogic, a famous illustrator, had already shared images that showed Oscar Isaac as Solid Snake and Henry Cavill as Big Boss. The funny thing is that the illustration of Solid Snake was requested by Vogt-Roberts, director of this film.
Find out: They will produce bionic arms inspired by the Venom Snake of Metal Gear Solid V.
To everyone asking how I feel about Oscar Isaac saying he wants to be Solid Snake.
The full process required to cast an icon hasn’t even started, but..
Ask @Bosslogic where the idea for his brilliant mock up came from.
