Sony is bringing Konami’s hit videogame franchise Metal Gear Solid to the big screen, says Variety.
Metal Gear Solid has sold more than 20 million units since 1998, but its roots date back even further; the first “Metal Gear” game came out in 1987. The stealth action title became one of the industry’s biggest hits and has four sequels, the last three of which came out under the “Metal Gear Solid” moniker. Another sequel is set for release this year.
Michael De Luca will produce the adaptation, with videogame creator Hideo Kojima as executive producer.
