Metal Gear Solid Movie Update

Taken directly from Wikipedia:
Quote:
On April 28, 2006, Kojima announced on his weekly podcast, HIDECHAN! Radio, that "[they] are going to do it as a movie," referring to Metal Gear Solid, and that it is going to be in English. Kojima Productions distributed a catalog for upcoming games at E3 2006, which included an article on the film project. In it, Kojima stated that "a movie project is underway," and that a contract with a party in Hollywood has been finalized.

Before the project was announced, German director Uwe Boll, known for his poorly received video game-based films, claimed that he received a script from Konami for a possible Metal Gear Solid movie adaptation.In response, Kojima stated that they have never talked to Boll, and that "it's impossible we'd ever do a movie with him".After the announcement, Kojima reiterated that Boll will have nothing to do with the project.
On February 8, 2007, Sony Pictures Entertainment vice chairman Yair Landau revealed his studio is developing the project. "We're working with the Metal Gear guys," Landau said following his D.I.C.E. summit keynote address 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?'"[7]

It was also confirmed on February 8, 2007 that Michael De Luca would produce with Hideo Kojima executive producing.

<3. They don't want it to suck. This isn't really news, but it's good to know.

Not only should he direct it, he should also star in his own movie. AS SNAKE HIMSELF.

Eh. The game itself is pretty much a movie.

Uwe Boll is my idol, only he has made the entire world truly hate him. I wish I could do that. People actually seem to like me more when I try to be a asshole

Right... If Konami and Kojima are doing it then it's going to be really cinematic yet boring and stupid.... All the cut scenes from all the games have been predictable then yet unpredictabley stupid and frequently embarrassing dialogue and story wise. I'm a big fan of the game but not of the cut scenes and story.
I'll watch the movie out of curiousity.
