It looks like the Metal Gear Solid movie has just moved one step closer to happening.

Sony Pictures Entertainment as signed Jay Basu up to write the screenplay for the film adaptation of Hideo Kojima’s Metal Gear Solid video game.

Basu co-wrote Monsters: Dark Continent and is currently helping Universal with their shared monster universe but is still relatively unknown.

The movie will be produced by Avi and Ari Arad, and will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, director of The Kings of Summer.

That’s all we got, folks… but hey, isn’t it cool that this is probably happening? Yeah, we think so too…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
