IMDb confirms David Hayter as one the writters for the Metal Gear Solid movie - IMDb lists Kojima as the story writer and Hayter as the screenplay writer.
No freakin' way. Awesome.
Didn't he say he was pushing for the script but got denied. I say we list this as rumor. if true though congrats and i feel confident the movie is in good hands
True they did, but i guess the pettion may have helped him become the screenwriter. I hope he does justice to the MGS Movie (since no other writer would do it =). Hey Kojima is the story Writer! keeps getting better and better.
Awesome, the two best people on board. Hayter wrote X2 among other things, which was awesome, and he and kojima obviously know mgs better than anyone else out there.... I'm quite pleased to hear this. Now I'm confident with the right cast and director this movie will be awesome.
He would make the perfect actor for Snake!
will be the actor for Snake. He seems to be the person they used as the likeness anyways. Like at the two pictures side by side with the article. David Hayter IS Snake.
Hayter needs to lose some fat and build some muscle if he wants to play snake. There is a little bit of a resemblance though.
Sweet, this movie is going to be a MGS fanboys wetdream.
To be the voice of an iconic video game character AND be a successful screenplay writer for movies like X-Men is a superb achievement! I have to agree that David Hayter looks a lot like Snake, but he'll need to loose some weight and work out to get the right body shape. Christian Bale goes from bulky muscily Batman to skinny anorexic blokes with no major problem, so Hayter should be ok. I just couldn't imagine watching a MGS movie without David Hayter's voice coming out of Snake's mouth. Wouldn't be the same.
Hell no to Tom Cruse. More like Sean Bean! Look at the pic of snake and he looks just like him
Christian Bale, nuff said.
Frank O'Connor would do a better job.
wrote the first two xmen so. i think he'll do fine. Also which Frank O'Connor the one born 1881 or 1918?
the xmen movies were bad.... it only sold well due to the hype of hollywood and there was nothing out at the moment.
Big payday for him. Big one. Maybe he'll thank the fans who had a hand in getting him hired.
Naturally the only people who would disagree with you're comment (which by the way had nothing wrongly said or implied) are xbox fanboys who cannot enjoy the MGS franchise because they only enjoy the crap that Microsoft spews.
that would be pure ownsauce
he would have too. because the movie would insta fail if he didn't
I'm pretty sure the movie would do fine without the exact tone of voice that snake brings. If Bale actually lands the role I could see him portraying snakes voice accurately enough.
There's no way in hell Christian Bale, or any other A-list actor for that matter, would agree to a role in which his voice was covered up by another actor's. Their egos would not allow for that.
Christian Bale as Snake...and im good
it would be awesome if snake was christian bale but I really liked david hayter voicing snake...hayter brought this character to life. I hope this works out because I like them both...ya know now that I think about it, having christian bale would be an overall person to play this role but this dude(bale) is soo busy with work(roles)...they would have to hold off until he finds time in his schedule.
could be a better snake.
now do one with christian bale...he looks more like snake from mgs1
Make David snake. Hes got the physique, and voice down. So what if his eyes are alittle too beady, nothing alittle hollywood magic couldn't fix.
here you go. yeah he looks like solid snake from mgs1. but if the movie is based on big boss then huck would be the perfect snake(big boss)
I think the same, Bale looks like Snake in MGS1 and Jackman looks like BigBoss, they could both appear if the movie was based on the original MetalGear from NES. And in the voice over thing, I think Bale can pull off Snake's voice from MGS1 which when I heard it again after a long time playing MGS3/4 sound very different than in MGS1, Snake sounded more natural back then.
Tom Cruise = Snake >>>>> Bale or Jackman
I can't see Jackman playing Solid Snake, But I can see him playing Naked Snake (Big Boss) in a live action version of Snake Eater. If its possible....
The best Old Snake!
... can't ANYONE edit IMDB's database?
Yep. You just have to register.
You can't trust imdb.
Here's a good example: http://www.imdb.com/title/t... Read the tagline.
LOL, awesome, just awesome!
He must think that I don't want this to be true... hell, I wish it was CG so he could play Snake!
Very Nice! Hayter is obviously one of the best people for the job because he's been involved with every Metal Gear Solid game, so it only makes sense that he should be the screen play writer. And it's good to see that Kojima will be the story writer. I honestly think that Kojima should have been in the Motion Picture Industry a LONG time ago, but as long as he keeps delivering cinematic PS3 exclusives, I'll be happy.
i want a cg movie...1080p guess its too late:(
I don't care who they get to write it, as long as my dear friend Uwe directs! LOL
*Ahem* Good job, Dave u_u
Everyone needs to calm down. This confirms nothing. Hayter himself said his treatment was rejected and Konami issued a statement saying that he is not attached to the picture.
It will be debunked by tomorrow.
I want a CG movie. I think thats the only way they are gonna capture the feel of the game.
LOL. you guys do know that IMDB is the same as wikipedia... anyone can put that.
Go to IGN, Hayter won't screen write his totally off the project. Like it states, a guy who's doing the voice acting for the game then to screen write the movie is stretching it.
While I agree that he is off the project (because he said so) it's not that much of a stretch to think that he might have written the film since his primary occupation is screenwriting even though he is more well known for his voice work.
Due to politics within Sony Pictures (and apparently Konami), he's not going to be the screenwriter for the movie. BTW, the dude's hilarious.
If it is true that is. Hopefully, Kojima and Hayter can come to terms with their differences in story progression and plot. There was an article about these differences and a particular scenario I won't describe for spoilers sake. Personally, I don't think these two see eye to eye. Maybe its for the best if they don't work together. Edit: thanks for confirming that DJ. Bubble
I got really scared when Konami, Sony Pictures rejected his take on the movie. I'm glad they made the right choice :D I know Hayter wants to incorporate some of his own ideas, hopefully he'll balance the movie and make MGS storytelling "less-Japanese", because he said that Japanese style storytelling, and that of what Konami wants to do goes into every detail and you can't do that in a feature-length 2 hour film.
Some games just don't need to be movies. Period.
I do wonder if Kojima considers David Hayter an important figure in the series. I hope this one is true, seeing as how we saw what these people can do with computer generated graphics ( Metal Gear Solid 4 ) Imagine this for a moment, people... these people working on a big budget movie... it's mind boggling, because there are so many pros and cons that can be tossed around on this one.
I dont really like the idea of a MGS movie.. I cant help but feel like it will just be shamefull..Unless hayter does the actual acting,or voicing.It just wont be the same.
As much as I would like to see this happen, it is simply bogus. Sorry folks.
"Because this project is categorized as being in production, the data is subject to change; some data could be removed completely." Not 100% confirmed.
Didn't they like release that movie a few weeks ago?
you are just like every other xbox butt buddie...hateing on what you can't have. I would wager a million bucks you haven't even played MGS4 yourself.
play a movie?
Anyone can edit the information on IMDB
IMDB is the most unreliable source for movie information.
because the listing says Kurt Wimmer is directing. If true, the movie is going to be full of plot holes and have HORRIBLE editing. Which I don't really understand since his previous two movies had separate editors...
Yes, us Americans got used to his voice as Solid Snake. He does a really great job. Yet it still doesnt qualify him to write the script for the movie!! Why because he played the game??? If that's the case I can write the script, along with everyone else who played the series!!! Hideo Kojima should be the deciding factor since he IS THE CREATOR!!! It's only right, if Hideo wants to make the movie, ok... if he wants David Hayter to write it ok... but damn, please dont ruin this Saga. -------- List of the fallen ones. Street Fighter Mortal Kombat Super Mario Bro. Double Dragons Resident Evil Bloodrayne House of the Dead Dead or Alive Hitman POKEMON .... gotdamn the list goes on, dont add Metal Gear to the list!!!
What the hell is a "writter"?
*slaps self* Just noticed it said Hideo Koijma writer, and David Hayter as the screenplay writer.... Carry-on.
THEY LOOK ALIKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
can not possibly be as good as a Metal Gear Solid Game.
im a bit cautious about this project. for them to even consider releasing this movie, they should check the endless list of failed video-game-to-movie projects and make SURE that if they do make an mgs movie, they dont make the same mistakes other failed projects have made. i know kojima-san (hail kojima!)has released a masterpiece in MGS but not all videogames work well as movies. kojima shouldn't rush to it for a chubby pay check. he should apply the same passion and time he took in the games to make a movie worthy of an oscar. any thing less than a classic movie will hurt his reputation. i hope he's doing this movie for the right reasons.
So I want to see him cash it in at the box office. However, I don't expect the movie to be as good as either of the games for several reasons. 1. There is no girl. In big time box office movie there has to be a leading lady. Snake doesn't have one. That's a problem when you get to the silver screen. 2. There is no way you can tell the story of Metal Gear Solid or even a single Metal Gear Solid game in 3 movies, let alone one. There is just too much vital material. Metal Gear Solid 4 alone has 8 or 9 hours of story telling. Even with three movies you would not have the time to develop all the important characters, or to properly frame the struggle.
