Oscar Isaac has been keeping himself rather bust lately. Not only is he set to appear in the much-anticipated Dune, along with being eyed-up for Marvel Studios Disney+ series Moon Knight, but now he’s signed on to appear in Sony Pictures big-screen adaptation of Metal Gear Solid as cult video game character Solid Snake.
As reported by Deadline, Isaac will star in the big-screen adaptation of Metal Gear Solid as Solid Snake which will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts.
The film is based on the Metal Gear Solid video game created by Hideo Kojima and published by Konami. The script is written by Derek Connolly. Avi Arad is producing. Peter Kang is the executive overseeing for the studio.
The game was first launched on PlayStation in 1998 and follows Snake, a soldier who infiltrates a nuclear weapons facility to neutralize the terrorist threat from Foxhound, a renegade special forces unit.
Given Isaac’s extremely busy schedule it’s unlikely that he’ll get to this one quickly, but it’s extremely exciting to know that he’ll be taking on this massive project in the near future.
