Here’s how the ‘Kong: Skull Island’ director would tackle a ‘Metroid’ movie

Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain

Jordan Vogt-Roberts, the man who is now directing a Metal Gear movie adaptation, has discussed his "crazy" ideas for a potential Metroid movie.

His collection not only houses every game in the series (signed by Hideo Kojima, no less) but several life-sized figurines, an arcade machine that seemingly players every Metal Gear Solid title and even a freakin' wearable Ludens suit to give things a suitably surreal Death Stranding flavor. "If I wasn't involved in it, I would still look at that script and [say], 'Holy shit'". Which sounds authentic but a hard sell to movie audiences. So, like we said, we wouldn't count it as a done deal yet. Vogt-Roberts stated that the script had been undergoing a rework since August of a year ago to suit the game's tone to ensure that it is in line with what players have come to expect from the video game series. During the course of their discussion, the Metroid franchise was brought up, and Roberts revealed that he'd love a chance to adapt it into a film as well. And that will never be something that I stop being vocal about.

Would you like to see a Metroid movie one day? It's too insane. It legitimately would be her (Samus) alone.

'It would be a little bit of her talking to herself.

Metal Gear Solid fans are used to sitting around waiting. You put her alone and it's nearly got a little bit more to do with the silence of a movie like Drive, like the quietness, and having it be like a real, intense mood piece, but mixed with sci-fi. "Like the quietness and having it be like a real, intense mood piece, but mixed with sci-fi".

He believes that we're entering an era where a wave of filmmakers who grew up having similar emotional experiences from video games will reflect those experiences in their movies.
