Metal Gear Solid movie in development again

Metal Gear Solid

(From Collider) A feature film iteration of the popular video game Metal Gear Solid has gone through quite a few ups and downs over the years, but it now sounds like development on the film is moving forward… again.

Konami has confirmed that Metal Gear Solid is in the works with Spider-Man’s Avi Arad onboard to produce.

For those unaware, Metal Gear Solid is a stealth action video game that centers on a solider named Solid Snake who infiltrates a nuclear weapons facility in order to neutralize a terrorist threat.

Arad is the former chairman and CEO of Marvel Studios, but his track record is a tad hit and miss.  Hit the jump for more on the Metal Gear Solid movie.

The announcement of the Metal Gear Solid film was made at the Metal Gear Anniversary event in Tokyo.

While at Marvel, Arad was responsible for some truly great adaptations like Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man films and X-Men, but he was also behind Fantastic Four and Elektra.

He hasn’t exactly found great success since leaving the studio, with The Amazing Spider-Man acting as his only recent hit.  In addition to MGS, he’s also developing film versions of Mass Effect and Uncharted.

This isn’t the first time that a Metal Gear Solid movie has tried to get off the ground.  The Social Network producer Michael De Luca was previously attached to the property in 2008, but by 2010 the project had fallen apart.

De Luca cited the difficulty of aligning the interests of everyone involved to make a singular film as the reason the movie didn’t move forward, and it’s no secret that video game companies are ridiculously precious when it comes to adapting their properties.

There’s no guarantee that Arad’s version will get further than De Luca’s, and based on his comments at the Metal Gear Solid event it sounds like they’re not rushing to get this thing into production.
