Metal Gear Solid film director shares concept art to celebrate series’ 31st anniversary
July 13th, 2018 marks the 31st anniversary of Metal Gear’s arrival on the MSX2, and Jordan Vogt-Roberts, the director of the upcoming Metal Gear Solid movie, is celebrating the occasion by releasing 31 pieces of concept art inspired by Hideo Kojima’s beloved stealth-action series.
A Metal Gear movie was first announced by Kojima all the way back in 2006, but that project eventually stalled. A second attempt to kickstart a film adaptation was unveiled in 2012, and has been quietly ticking away ever since. Although there’s been little publicly evident progress on the movie, Vogt-Roberts (who directed 2017’s Kong: Skull Island) noted last year that Kojima is assisting in the game’s script, despite his split with Konami in 2015.
Vogt-Roberts has repeatedly confessed to being a massive fan of Metal Gear, and, promisingly, continues to demonstrate a keen understanding of Kojima’s beloved series – which was once again evident in his Tweets celebrating its 31st anniversary.
