A movie adaptation of Konami's Metal Gear Solid video game franchise has been in the works for a few years at Columbia Pictures and now comes word that Avi Arad ("X-Men" and "Spider-Man" films) has come on board as a producer.
The former CEO and the founder of Marvel Studios is presumably taking over from producer Michael De Luca, who was previously attached.
Arad made the announcement at the Metal Gear 25th Anniversary presentation. "For many years I fought to bring comics to theaters - and video games are the comics of today," he said, adding, "We will take our time and tell the story with all the nuances, ideology, cautionary tales needed."
