Metal Gear Solid movie back on with Avi Arad

There have been several attempts at a Metal Gear Solid movie over the years, and one terrifying prank involving Uwe Boll, but one's properly in production now at Columbia Pictures. Avi Arad, who's produced every Marvel comic book movie of the past two decades--both good and bad--is attached, and quite enthusiastic.

There have been several attempts at a Metal Gear Solid movie over the years, and one terrifying prank involving Uwe Boll, but one's properly in production now at Columbia Pictures. Avi Arad, who's produced two decades of Marvel's comic book movies--both good and bad--is attached, and quite enthusiastic.

"For many years I fought to bring comics to theaters - and video games are the comics of today," Ari said, according to 8-4's John Ricciardi (via Kotaku), who was there.

"We will take our time and tell the story with all the nuances, ideology, cautionary tales needed," he added. Condensing such notoriously cutscene-heavy work shall doubtless take a while.

Who will write, star, direct, score, light, and all that other jazz? It's a mystery for now. And, of course, there's no guarantee that this latest project won't collapse like past attempts at turning Metal Gear Solid, and so many other video games, into movies.
