Fans of a popular video game will have to wait indefinitely for the game to make its way to the silver screen. Collider recently spoke with producer Mike De Luca, who said that a film version of the hit video game Metal Gear Solid is not currently in the works. Here's an excerpt from the article.
I don't think it's going to move forward because I got the sense that there may not be enough of a coordinated will at this point on the side of certain parties to see a movie get made.
