METAL GEAR SOLID Movie Director Wants To Make An Animated Series Based On The Video Game Franchise

Metal Gear Solid movie director Jordan Vogt-Roberts wants to make an animated series based on the video game franchise which brings back voice actor David Hayter as Snake.

Jordan Vogt-Roberts is best known for directing Kong: Skull Island. He's at the helm of a cinematic adaptation of the massive video game franchise that is Metal Gear Solid — and has been since 2014.

Recently, the movie director featured on screenwriter Gary Whitta's talk show, Animal Talking. For what it's worth, the show takes place entirely within Nintendo's Animal Crossing: New Horizons. While on the show, Vogt-Roberts spoke about the Metal Gear Solid movie, explaining that he's doing his darndest to make Hideo Kojima, the creator of Metal Gear Solid, proud.

"I've been on that movie for six years, and I've been fighting every single day to make sure that we translate that movie properly. This is my baby. I've been working on this thing for six years, trying to make it, so it is the disruptive, punk-rock, true to Metal Gear, true to Kojima-san spirit version of what this is and I will continue to fight for it every day."

Vogt-Roberts went on: "It's a difficult thing. Getting any movie made in Hollywood is hard. Getting something like Metal Gear made where it is so complex is even harder. That's why I'm trying to make it for a budget where you can do crazy shit, where you can do the Metal Gear version of it, where it isn't neutered."

What's more, Vogt-Roberts revealed that he's trying to get a Metal Gear Solid animated series off the ground, which would seemingly tie-in with the live-action movie adaptation that he's working on. The director wants David Hayter, the original voice actor of Metal Gear Solid protagonist Snake, to reprise the role for the series.

Vogt-Roberts explained (via Gamefragger) that he's "trying to get an animated series going that brings back David Hayter, that brings back the original voice cast, and doing that in tandem [with the MGS movie]." When and will this animated series see the light of day? Well, probably not before Vogt-Roberts is done with the live-action movie adaptation. Nonetheless, it sounds intriguing.
