Oscar Isaac pegged to play Solid Snake in Metal Gear Solid film

Gearing up

The Metal Gear Solid movie has been in development hell for a long, long time now, but it appears some movement is finally being made.

While it's not 100% official just yet, inside sources are claiming that Oscar Isaac is going to take on the role of Solid Snake. Isaac is certainly one of the busier actors in Hollywood, and his attachment to the film boosts its profile considerably. With Jordan Vogt-Roberts set to direct, hopefully we can expect an adaptation that is taken seriously, and respects the franchise its paying tribute to.

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories writer currently pitching a "follow-up," but not to Konami

So not Silent Hill...but like it

Sam Barlow, the man behind the award-winning titles Her Story and Telling Lies, also happened to be the writer for the 2009 Wii release, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. That entry in the franchise took a rather unique approach, as it removed combat altogether. The decision was a divisive one, but it definitely had its fans, and the game grew in popularity as the years went on.

While Barlow has found great success since his Silent Hill work, it seems he'd like to return some of the ideas used in Shattered Memories. Barlow announced on Twitter that he's working on a follow-up to that title, but it doesn't seem that it's actually tied to Silent Hill. Barlow specifically says that he's currently pitching the idea, but not to Konami. Whatever this follow-up is looks to be more in line with a spiritual successor, rather than an actual sequel.
