Star Wars and Dune actor Oscar Isaac is in negotiations to play Solid Snake in the latest Metal Gear Solid movie, according to recent sources. If the casting talks were to take place and Isaac accepts for the part, this will address the long-standing question of who will play Snake in the film adaptation of the beloved video game series.
Deadline first reported on the news of the apparent Metal Gear Solid casting decision while citing unnamed sources. Neither Isaac nor anyone involved with the film have confirmed the casting decision yet. Deadline also said that, as one might’ve expected from the announcement, Isaac’s involvement in the Metal Gear Solid movie has given the film new momentum. It’s now a “high priority” for Sony Pictures moving forward, though the film still doesn’t yet have a date set for when production will begin.
