Jordan Vogt-Roberts has Metal Gear Solid shortlist

OHMYGOSSIP — Jordan Vogt-Roberts has a shortlist of actors he wants to cast as Solid Snake in his ‘Metal Gear’ movie.
The 35-year-old filmmaker is attached to direct a film based on Hideo Kojima’s iconic Konami video game series centred on FOXHOUND elite special forces operative Snake, but is staying tight-lipped on the names in the frame for the role.
He said: “There’s actors that I love, that I would love to cast as Snake … but I won’t answer any questions about who those are!”
Jordan’s ‘Metal Gear’ project has been in the planning stage for six years and he admits it is very tough to get a Hollywood studio to the back the project due to the complex storyline and the fact it is based on a video game franchise, due to the sporadic success of games being converted to the big screen.
Speaking on ‘Star Wars’ writer Gary Whitta’s ‘Animal Talking’ show, Jordan explained: “Look, this is my baby. I’ve been working on this thing for six years, trying to make it so it is the disruptive, punk-rock, true to ‘Metal Gear’, true to Kojima-san version of what this is. I will continue to fight for it every day.
“It’s a difficult thing, getting any movie made in Hollywood is hard. Getting something like ‘Metal Gear’ made … it is so complex (so) it’s even harder. That’s why I’m trying to make it for a budget where you can do crazy s***, where you can do the ‘Metal Gear’ version of it where it isn’t neutered.”
The ‘Kong: Skull Island’ director had hoped to begin shooting the movie last year and now the coronavirus crisis has delayed his plans even further.
He said: “I thought I was going to be on the set of this movie a year ago. Right now, there’s a bunch of … COVID has sort of changed everything and we’re figuring out a bunch of stuff.
“I have no idea when it’s going to go. I will fight for it every single day. I will fight to try and get this animated series going in conjunction with it. It’s tough getting movies made, especially something where you’re trying to be bold like this. I will fight every single day until I can’t.”
