It looks like no game is safe from Hollywood - not even Hideo Kojima's legendary Metal Gear series, Sony Pictures Entertainment confirmed yesterday, is indeed being adapted into a full-blown motion picture.
"We're working with the Metal Gear guys," Sony Pictures Entertainment Vice Chairman Yair Laundau revealed to Gamespot, following his D.I.C.E. keynote in Las Vegas.
"It's a very cinematic game, it really lends itself to movie-telling. But the question is, 'How do you translate Snake's experience into a full arc that conforms to what audiences expect on the large screen?'" Keeping it away from Uwe Boll would be a start, we reckon.
Of course the Solid Snake stealth-em-up has always been one of the obvious choices for a game-to-film adaptation - what with its 45 minute cut-scenes and all, but we can only cross our fingers and hope that Sony does the series justice on the big screen, especially following recent game movie cock-ups Dead or Alive and Doom.
As for us, we just want MGS3 on the silver screen.
