Of the many video game-based movies to come (and the ones that are still rumored), there is one that has more than one video game lover on edge. We are obviously talking about the adaptation of Hideo Kojima’s masterpiece, Metal Gear Solid, a film that is already in development and of which, finally, we already know the main actor.
Who will play Solid Snake?
The actor chosen to play the good old Solid Snake will be none other than Oscar Isaac, known for being a Resistance pilot in Star Wars and for appearing soon in the movie Dune. Taking into account the trajectory of the actor and the physical aspect, we could bet that we are before a quite wise choice.
The most curious thing is that Isaac himself proposed as an interpreter for the film in 2019, since in an interview carried out during the promotion of the film Triple Frontier, the actor assured that he would love to be part of the casting, “acting like Snake, of course.”

An unforgettable game
The approach that Metal Gear Solid proposed to us was to take the reins of an elite soldier named Solid Snake, who is sent to a military base located on Shadow Moses Island, in Alaska. There, he must try to end the rule of a militia called FoxHound, but in his foray he will discover that things were not as he had been raised.
The game introduced a cinematic vision that dazzled critics, especially with an unforgettable prologue that brought this magnificent launch of the original PlayStation to the top of the table, so its adaptation to the big screen was something that had to happen. sooner or later.
When can we see the movie?
You better go forgetting about an upcoming premiere. To give you an idea, Hideo Kojima confirmed that a Metal Gear Solid movie would be made back in 2006, 15 years later we have known who will be the main actor. The film is already in development, but we better be patient and let ourselves be surprised by the trailer that they release when they see fit to launch. The desire to see it is not lacking, of course.
