Rumor: Christian Bale to Play Solid Snake in Metal Gear Solid Movie?
Apparently, the latest issue of Nuts — a UK publication — has an interview with Christian Bale, where he states that he is in the running to play Solid Snake in the upcoming Metal Gear Solid movie. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the actual interview, but the movie is supposedly slated for a 2009 release. Personally, I’m hoping this rumor turns out to be true and he does get the role. Equilibrium, American Psycho, The Machinist, Batman Begins, The Prestige: the man certainly has played in some truly memorable roles, so there’s no doubt in my mind that he can pull off the character. The question remains though, can he pull off the mullet? We shall have to see.
