Continuing his hot streak of major roles in popular franchises, Oscar Isaac has once again struck gold as Sony Pictures has reportedly cast the actor in the upcoming movie adaptation of Metal Gear Solid. Created by Hideo Kojima and published by Konami, Metal Gear Solid is set to be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts and is produced by Sony Pictures.
As one of the most sought after actors in the industry right now, Oscar Isaac has been a part of numerous multi-billion dollar franchises over the past years. From starring as Poe Dameron in Star Wars to Duke Leto Atreides in Dune, the actor has also been cast as Moon Knight in the upcoming Marvel’s Disney+ show.
Released back in 1998, Metal Gear: Solid Snake follows the story of Solid Snake, an accomplished mercenary and a former Green Beret who is assigned to covertly destroy models of the bipedal nuclear weapon-armed mecha known as Metal Gear. Considered to be one of the most popular video-game characters, Solid Snake is known for his rugged looks and contagious personality.
As reported by Deadline, the Metal Gear Solid movie is being produced by Avi Arad while the principal screenwriter attached to the project is Derek Connolly. Conolly is best known for his works on major blockbusters like Kong: Skull Island, Jurassic World, Pokemon Detective Pikachu, and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. The movie is being overseen by Peter Kang.
As one of the most popular video-game franchises of all time, Metal Gear Solid is known for its cinematic experience which makes it such an exciting project to adapt on the big screen. Despite the abysmal success rate of movie adaptations of video-games, Metal Gear Solid surely deserves a chance to witness Oscar Isaac portraying the charismatic Solid Snake on the silver screen.
The news of Oscar Isaac being confirmed to play such an iconic role despite his incredibly busy schedule will definitely make the fans of the video-game franchise euphoric. Scheduled to star in HBO’s Scenes From a Marriage and Marvel’s Moon Knight, Oscar Isaac just can’t stop himself from playing iconic roles in acclaimed franchises.
