Welcome to "Rumorville" again, as we cruise in the gaming universe, smelling the air for some fresh Final Fantasy: Crisis Core news (it's launched today) and also some interesting piece of info related to the Metal Gear Solid
I, for one, didn't even know that such a movie was coming, but I'm glad to see yet another hit game turned into another successful media product. Turns out that Solid Snake will be played by Christian Bale, whom you might remember from "Reign of Fire" or "Batman Begins".
Keep in mind that this is only a rumor, but I'm not too enthusiastic about this choice, since I wasn't impressed by the actor's skills in the latest "Batman" movie. Well, at least he looks like Solid Snake
, as you can see in the picture on the left, with that rough facial hair and tough attitude. We haven't received yet an official confirmation from Bale, nor has he stated his future plans in an interview, so we're just speculating on some info posted on PS3Forums.
My only fear is that this motion picture will turn into a standard action movie, like some sort of "Rambo meets James Bond"... Well, Snake may have a bandana, but he's ten times the man that Rambo is and even more of a secret agent than Bond. Since Solid was always surrounded by beautiful women and he was the playboy agent type, I wonder what the director's choice will be when it comes to the movie's female characters.
If I were to choose one of the games of the series to turn it into a movie, it would definitely be Metal Gear
Solid, the very first PSX title, that conquered the world with its storyline and the superb feeling. Let's hope that MGS, the movie, will be more of a Kojima material and less of a Hollywood product.
