Metal Gear Solid: The Movie (D: Vogt-Roberts) S: Oscar Isaac

Just the other day I was thinking about who I would in a Metal Gear Solid movie so I thought I'd see what you guys would do.
So this would be my cast:

Snake: Hugh Jackman

Raiden: Tom Cruise (Maybe dye his hair??)

Stillman: Morgan Freeman

Snakes partner the computer whiz: Steve Busemi

Rose: Sandra Bullock

The Chief or whatever he is: Gene Hackman/Tommy Lee Jones

Directed by: Micheal Bay

So what do you guys think and who would you cast?

Since Snake was modeled after the Snake Plissken then obviously Kurt Russell!!! Raiden I'd go with Ben Affleck. Computer wiz...hmm..Jason Lee. Katie Holmes could be Rose. The Colonel..Gene Hackman would be good. The boss guy at the end...Christopher Lee! Olga I think her name was could be played by..ehh..someone fugly. And Fortune could be played Vivica A Fox. Directed by the Wachowski Brothers Produced by Joel Silver.

I thought that the plot of MGS 2 was horrible compared to the first one so I hope that they never adapt Sons of Liberty.

I don't even want Raiden in MGS 3. Metal Gear is about Solid Snake, not some other guy.

and have Rob Bowman direct again and Adrian Biddle do the cinematog.

Just keep Joel Schumacher as far away from a Metal Gear movie as humanly possible.

So what do you guys think and who would you cast?
Your choices for Snake and Otacon (the computer wiz) are the same exact choices I've been voicing sing MGS first came out. Another good choice for Snake (circa Sons of Liberty) would be Sean Bean.


Simpson Purist:

As for Liquid, Orlando Bloom really doesn't look too much like Hugh Jackman so he would be better suited to play a non-whiney Raiden. Also, isn't Orlando Bloom a little too young to be Liquid? Seriously, I liked Raiden but wanted to shoot Rosemary. No wonder the guy was always complaining!

Rolf Moeller can't be Vulcan Raven as Vulcan Raven was black (at least he looked black). That is, of course, if you want to stick to minute details (as most hardcore fanboys would). Otherwise, he's a fine choice.

The Wachowski Bros. are Hideo Kojima's personal choice if ever there were to be a Metal Gear movie but I'd prefer Tony Scott (the way he directed Spy Game would suit the whole intruige and thinking man's actioner elements that can often be found throughout the Metal Gear games -- minus the action heavy boss fights *l*) or Ridley Scott (the way he directed Black Hawk Down would be perfect for the "Mercenary War" of Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake) would be good choices. Maybe they should collaborate.

My original directing choice was John Frankenheimer but sadly...

Anyhoo, your other casting choices are great. I never thought of Same Elliot as Shalashaska. Do you really think he can pull of the accent, though? And since this is a movie and would take liberties with the story,
Spoiler:
maybe they'd kill off Meryl! I just felt the dialogue was really cheesy when you knew Meryl was alive making Snake come across as a whimp whereas he seemed more human and fallible when you knew she was dead. He was easier to relate too with the "Meryl is dead" scenario.


Isn't Hugh Jackman 6'4", Deftones17? I think he's tall enough.

It's obvious Solid Snake should be Kurt Russell, if only so the line "Call me Snake" can be in the film...

Hollywood studio game for "Metal Gear Solid" By Tatiana Siegel and Borys Kit
Fri Feb 9, 4:56 AM ET

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Columbia Pictures is in negotiations to acquire the rights to adapt the best-selling video game "Metal Gear Solid."

The studio plans to turn the PlayStation game series from Konami Digital Entertainment into a character-driven futuristic spy thriller.

The game centers on Solid Snake, a Special Forces operative called out of retirement for one last mission. With terrorists threatening a nuclear facility in Alaska, Snake must penetrate their defenses and neutralize the threat.

With sales of more than $1 billion and 20 million units, the "Metal" franchise is one of the most popular and critically acclaimed video game series in the marketplace. Since its debut in 1998, the franchise also has spawned ancillary markets, with 3 million strategy guides, 1.5 million action figures and 200,000 comic books sold.

Just watch the the scene from 24 Season 4 when Jack Bauer and company covertly storm the Chinese Embassy, and tell me Kiefer Sutherland wouldn't be Bad-Ass as Snake.

He's Jack, and will always be Jack, you can't change that. That said, when I saw Season 1 of 24, I couldn't shake the feeling that it was Metal Gear Solid the TV Series in some parts.

To me the game plays out like a movie with all the story and dialogue in it. I would see a movie if it was well made but if It turned out bad it would leave a huge sour taste in my mouth.
