if sony and konami teamed up to deliver Silent Hill: the movie
which was really well done and looked exzactly like the game

i cant wait till konami and sony release metal gear solid:the movie

too bad clint eastwood is to old, or that the new james bond looks nothing like solid snake, he always mentioned he favored the old Clint Eastwood movies and 007 series of movies' and thats where snake was thought up from

It would have been awesome to see clint eastwood as snake, maby his son looks like him
