David Hayter Wants to Write the Metal Gear Solid Movie

Gamers everywhere know David Hayter as the gravelly voice behind Solid Snake. But it looks like Hayter is looking to expand his role in the Metal Gear universe. Recently, he responded to fans on the IMDB message boards with this:

As for me writing the MGS movie, tell everyone on-line to write to Matt Tolmach at Sony Pictures studios in Culver City. If enough people do this, we may be back on board.

And just like that, the fans have now delivered with an online petition. To his credit, Hayter does have experience as a screenwriter, having penned the scripts for the upcoming Watchmen film and the first two X-Men movies (or as I refer to them “the good ones”). If he can keep phrase “love can bloom on the battlefield” out of it, he’s got my vote.

I hope this works out and we get a great MGS movie.

I realize that hollywood has completely lost all of its creativitiy and originalality but I do not think the answer lies in making every popular video game into a movie….I’m just saying.

Go Marlins!!!!

I’m really not a fan of the MGS series of games, but this movie might be alright.

Every fan of the MGS series should support Hayter in this endeavor. He’s got the skills and the experience + true, real gamer love for the MGS universe.

If this goes thru, we are getting the epic masterpiece we’ve always loved finally in film, start signing NOW.

Yeah, this is a non-issue really, Hayter has experience in the industry and not the Uwe Boil-on-gaming/movie industry kind either.

Thumbs up….thumbs up even more if he actually plays the main man himself.
