The cast of Metal Gear Solid: The Movie

GamerZines: It's looking less and less likely that we'll see Hideo Kojima's most famous franchise make the transition to the big screen. Even though this news is probably a blessing in disguise, we can't help but throw in our two cents and formulate our own fantasy cast list for the big screen adaptation of the original Metal Gear Solid. (Metal Gear, Metal Gear Online, Metal Gear Solid, Metal gear solid 2, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Metal Gear Solid Rising, Metal Gear Solid Series, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, PS3)

Butler as Snake?? Hahhaha, yeah the dude got Fat. He doesn't even look like Snake.

Here's your Butler

= Perfection for the role.

That is a perfect Snake. He's a brilliant Actor and he looks just like the dude and he's actually in shape and is a fitness trainer to boot. Trevor St. John is the man to play this character. He's the best actor working in the industry today. He works hard and he's multi versed.

Which part of this guy looks like a Snake? You've fallen in love with him or what?

I admit, Butler with a bit of Hollywood magic would do decent Snake. http://media.photobucket.co...

But we don't need decent Snake. We need great Snake.

Milla? She's average actor, doesn't quite fit in the role IMO. Dunno who'd fit.

David Wenham as Liquid?... Bruce Payne would be good with his acting, accent and... Hollywood Magic.

Ray Parks? I don't know... Gordon Chan raped Rugal using him in KoF movie.

Ed Harris as Campbell? I like this guy, but I hardly see him as this role. Richard Crenna would be awesome in his younger days.

You are absolutley dellusional if you think Trevor St John doesn't look like Snake. More so if you think Butler looks more like him. Absurd. The Hollywood media glazed your donuts, dude. You're so feeble minded now you'll believe in anyone Hollywood sells you. You probably also think Justin Long is funny and probably think The Hangover was cleverly written. Right?

umm imma have to go with hay on this one.
That guy doesn't look like snake at all -.-
Other then the fact that they are both guys i guess.

@nogolis: It's all cool and fancy mate but there's a hole in your theory. I don't give a sh*t about Hollywood and prefer asian movies.

I just used assets provided by you, found in the story and in the classics of the 80s to make my own opinion.

And no, Hangover was awfully boring and predictable, which goes to the point one. I prefer asian movies.

It's ok man to fall in love in someone famous, don't be so agressive, we all fell in love with someone famous in our younger days. Nothing to be ashamed of.

Are you in love with the guy? He's never been the star of a movie (only playing a non-"movie guy 2" role a couple of times) and the only thing he would be known for is his role in a daytime soap (looked it up). I would hardly consider anyone who's only major performance is a soap opera "the best actor working in the industry." All that is pointless though, since he doesn't look like snake.

Gerard Butler might be able to get the look right, but I've never seen him act in a movie that would lead me to believe he could nail the role of Snake. I'm not sure anyone can, and to avoid screwing up what I consider the best video game character ever, I would prefer they not make the movie at all (because whoever plays the role will NOT be perfect, even if they used Hayter (wouldn't look the part)).

How can you cast a Metal Gear Solid movie without mentioning Otacon. He has got to be the second or third most important character....Yeah, third.

1. Snake
2. Ocelot
3. Otacon

P.S.

The same person should play both Liquid and Solid.

...of a movie which was canceled.
IGN just broke the news of this movie being scrapped
FantasyStar  +   1845d ago
I'm not surprised. The voice of Snake is more important than what he looks like, I think.
lh_swe  +   1845d ago
Well apparently it could never do the saga justice unless Hideo was involved.
In essence anyways, because so many things that make MGS what it is, well that is due to Hideo and the Konami Story board and whomever the director was felt he didn't do it justice.
FantasyStar  +   1845d ago
word. I don't think there needs to be a movie anyways. Most MGS games are like movies themselves.
theEnemy  +   1845d ago
Choosing an actor Solid Snake
is really a hard choice/decision.

Oh well.. MGS Movie won't be a reality for now..

:(

where's hugh jackman?
after all these lists, i still think jackmans the best
his suck my d*ck attitude in x-men will pull off snake anytime, not even mentioning he's huge and has the perfect voice.
DiffusionE  +   1845d ago
Don't you just love it when people suggest Hugh Jackman for every game/comic to movie adaptations? Just like they suggest Megan Fox for every female role. *facepalm*

I know all dont agree with me but
Milla Jovovich would awesome to play meryl, this MGS needs happen because if it does the bidebergs could get exposed more http://www.youtube.com/watc... the bildebergs is the exact same thing as the patriots. This would deffantly shock the world if it was in MGS the movie. The bildebergs is what Kojima found out and used it in terms as the patriots. The digital flow of information control.

Hayter HAS to play Snake, it's his destiny.
Sam Elliott is his best choice.
hatchimatchi  +   1844d ago
sam elliot is a good choice.

milla jovovich is bad for any movie, she can't act herself out of a paper bag.
