Word on the Hollywood street is that Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima will be producing the upcoming Metal Gear movie and that Paul Thomas (Magnolia) Anderson is interested in directing. Here's the quote:
Kojima will be acting as a producer, but we don't know how involved he'll be as a producer. Often Hollywood adaptations have the original game creator involved at the beginning, but somewhere along the line they fall out of view. This is why it's very important for us to carefully pick the studio for this project.
