Metal Gear movie gets new screenwriter


Yes, that’s still happening

So, do you remember that Metal Gear Solid movie that got announced back in 2012? Well, it’s apparently still happening despite the relative silence on the project and all the recent rumblings with Kojima.

Sony Pictures have reportedly hired writer Jay Basu to write the script for the movie. Basu, who co-wrote a movie called Monsters: Dark Continent that released last year, is apparently an in-demand up-and-coming writer. I can’t say I’ve ever heard of him or any of his movies before, but at least this is a sign the movie is still in the works.
