Who knows if we will ever see a film adaptation of the popular Metal Gear Solid The end of the video game series will finally be produced, but creator Hideo Kojima already has Luca Marinelli in mind if the long-awaited project takes place. From the very beginning Metal Gear The game, which was originally released in Japan in 1987 and later became an international hit on the NES, was the character of Solid Snake as the main protagonist of the series. 1998 sequel Metal Gear Solid gave him a unique look and voice, further expanding his personality, with clear inspiration from Kada Plissken by Kurt Russell from Escape from New York.
Since Russell is better suited to play roles than Santa Claus today, he is probably not the best person to call for Metal Gear Solid a film allegedly featured in works by Sony Pictures. Because there have been no announcements about the planned adaptation, fans are making their own speculations about who could make a good live action snake. This includes Oscar Isaac, who even agreed with the interest of the fans by publicly expressing his desire to take over the role. However, if you ask Kojima, he is currently leaning in a different direction after being caught Luca Marinelli in several movies he liked.
Directly from his personal account on Instagram, Kojima had to say when asked if some actors would have him, and remarked that Marinelli would be great for playing an agent with eyepieces:
“There are a lot of actors I watch. Luca Marinelli recently attracted attention after watching Old guard and Martin Eden, He played in an impressive villain They call me Jeeg Robotbut I think it will break out soon and its popularity will increase. I also think that if you put on a scarf, it would be a spitting image of Solid Snake! “
It didn’t take long for the internet to notice Kojim’s design, and it didn’t take long for an interesting fan art to emerge that captured what Marinelli might look like in this role. Popular digital artist BossLogic has compiled a fake poster for Metal Gear Solid the film and the actor’s vision in the Solid Snake costume make it easier to understand why Kojima sees some promises in the potential cast. “He wanted to see quickly what Hideo Kojima saw. He knows how to choose, “writes BossLogic in the headline. You can take a good look at the fan art on Instagram post below.
This is not the first actor to propose Kojima for the role of Solid Snake, as planned video games have been evolving in developmental hell for years. After initially announcing plans to Metal Gear Solid film in 2006, Kojima said he would like to see Hugh Jackman as a Solid Snake. Since then, the project has come to a halt with many potential writers and directors. The last iteration was set at Sony with director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, and since December 2019 Vogt-Roberts has stated that the project is still in production with a completed script. This message comes from Hideo Kojima on Instagram.
