X-Men and Spider-Man producer Avi Arad has announced a Metal Gear Solid movie during Konami's Metal Gear 25th anniversary event.
Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima had previously hinted at a movie earlier this year, but stressed that the franchise in its current state wasn't ready to make a transition into Hollywood yet.
Famed producer Arad said "for many years I fought to bring comics to theaters...and video games are the comics of today." The film itself will be distributed and funded by Columbia Pictures.
The Metal Gear 25th anniversary event also saw the announcement of an open-world Metal Gear Solid game running on the Fox Engine, Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes.
