Oscar Isaac is having a heck of year. He landed the role of Marvel’s Moon Knight and now he has been cast as Solid Snake in Metal Gear Solid at Sony. This one has Avi Arad on as producer and Jordan Vogt-Roberts on to direct.
The iconic Konami stealth action based game is from the mind of Hideo Kojima. Metal Gear games go all the way back to Nintendo and the Super Famicon. Most popularly, Metal Gear Solid was released in 1998 and has spawned a few sequels that have all revolved around Foxhound member, Solid Snake and his bloodline.
Oscar Isaac is a great pick for Snake. His work is always a completely welcome approach to everything he does. Even his work in Star Wars in which he played Poe Dameron was welcome by fans.
There is still no word on which aspect of Metal Gear Solid the film will follow. The games have a very convoluted and deeply rich story to pull from. There is no word at the moment as to when the film will go into production. Right now, Isaac is super busy. Soon, you will be able to see him in Denis Villeneuve’s Dune.
