Metal Gear Solid Film What's The Deal?

Metal Gear Solid Film What's The Deal? With all the video games being made into films, Metal Gear Solid is up there on my wish list to get made. According to writer David Hayter, here's whats going on. They’ve been trying to work out a deal between [creator Hideo Kojima] and [Sony]. A couple of years ago, a producer friend of mine asked me if I would be interested in doing the adaptation. And I said ‘Of course. I know it pretty well.’ I think I can say without contradiction that I know it better than any screenwriter on the planet. I’ve said every word that Snake has said. So I felt well-qualified So he wrote the script for the film, turned it in and all of a sudden.... nothing happened. There are no real details about why the film adaptation fell through. It's reported that it could be due to political reasons on Konami's (the game publisher) side. Hayter adds, On top of that, I don’t believe they were ever able to successfully close a deal between Mr. Kojima
