Vogt-Roberts has been working on the adaptation of Metal Gear Solid since at least 2017, and has been scripting since then. However, with Izak attached, Sony Pictures seems to be finally starting to make the long-awaited live-action movie.Isaac is best known for his role as a Poda Melon in the Star Wars series, but also for critical hits such as Exmakina and Inside Lewin Davis. He will play Ducreto Atreides in the next Dune movie.
In fact, Isaac said he wanted to take on the role of Solid Snake during an IGN interview with Netflix’s Triple Frontier. “Metal Gear Solid, that’s it,” Isaac said at the time. “I’m wearing that hat.”
Following the interview, Vogt-Roberts asked artist Boss Logic to mock up what the potential Isaac as Snake would look like. You can check the result below.

ask @Bosslogic Where did his stunning mockup idea come from?
