Metal Gear Solid Movie Casting Call

Ian Fisher writes: While no actual news has come to pass which points to a MGS movie being resurrected, I thought it would be fun to make a few picks on who would be the best to bring the characters of Metal Gear to life and which creative talent would be the best to adapt the vision and story created by the legendary Hideo Kojima. (Metal Gear Solid, PS3, Xbox 360)

That's a pretty decent list. Just as long as they keep Paul W.S. Anderson away from it, it should be good. Having said that, I'd probably see it if he was directing anyway...

Kurt Russell as Col. Campbell, Rachael McAdams as Meryl & Cillian Murphy as Otacon, with Duncan Jones to direct would be pretty amazing.

The rest of the list would be up for debate though...Viggo Mortensen as Snake would be my choice; he can act, he's got a voice like gravel & for everyone who's seen LOTR or A History of Violence, it's pretty evident he can handle physical roles.

And any VG film adaptation that doesn't have Paul W.S. Anderson or Uwe Boll attached, might actually stand a chance!

Hugh Jackman as Snake. See the comparisons people have made in google images and you'll see why he's perfect.

Jackman's a little old to play the MGS1 Solid Snake though I could definitely see him playing Big Boss.

Who ever said it was based on mgs 1. Plus Snake was in his 30's in MGS 1, Something Jackson can easily pull off.

Personally I hope it's a prequal to any one of the games, instead of a re-creation of an existing game. Where's the surprise if I already know all the plot twists.

Semper Fi Mother F-----!

I love B-movies(Evil Dead 2, Dead alive) and that is *one of my favorite lines.

I adore that movie. Plus that movie introduced me to the great Karl Urban.

Man that stand off at the end was excellent!

Also The Rundown is good.

I think the movie is called Five. Idk his most recent movie to star in where he is hunting down some bad dudes and killing them. Anyway he was pretty dang good in it. The scene with the preacher in particular.

In regards to the Metal Gear movie: As somebody mentioned Vulcan Raven would be a good fit.

What's with the story saying no news on metal gear solid the movie. It was announced severel hours ago.
ian86  +   1133d ago
Story was originally posted hours before the MGS movie news broke.
RyuX19  +   1135d ago
Why have a different actor play Liquid when he and Solid Snake have the same face? Michael Sheen as Ocelot? No just Hell no. Rachel McAdams is a terrible actress, Cillian Murphy as Otacon? Ehh no. Everything after that just sucks and Gary Oldmen should play Ocelot not Mantis.
Frances-the-Mute  +   1135d ago
Sean Bean as Snake
MrBeatdown  +   1135d ago
I gotta say, that is a really excellent list. I don't know everyone one there, but the ones I do are pretty good actors. Most of them, especially the choice for Snake, really look the part too.

Just make it CG and let Hayter be the voice. The visual fidelity of FFVII Advent Children was great - and that is already quite a few years back.
