Jordan Vogt-Roberts, who previously directed the Kong: Skull Island movie, is helming the big screen adaption of the Metal Gear franchise and has told IGN that the script that has been turned in is rather good.
“We just turned in the script and I think it’s one of the best scripts I’ve ever read.,” said Vogt-Robert. “It’s one of the coolest, weirdest, most Kojima things. Even me and being involved in it, I look at it as someone who is like, ‘I would make the hell out of this movie.’ But if I wasn’t involved in it, I would still look at that script and be like, ‘holy shit.’”
Hideo Kojima is involved in the production in a consulting role but given his acrimoniously split from Konami he may not have much involvement.
