Oscar Isaac (Star Wars, Dune) will take on the role of Solid Snake in an upcoming Metal Gear movie adaptation. The news broke through media outlet Deadline, which confirmed Isaac’s involvement with the adaptation. The film is currently in development and is being overseen by Sony Pictures.

And now, in 2020, Isaac has been cast as Solid Snake in the upcoming Metal Gear Solid adaptation.
Metal Gear Solid originally released on the PlayStation in 1998 to critical acclaim. The series has gone on to receive numerous sequels, with titles like Metal Gear Solid 4: Sons of the Patriots including movie-length cutscenes. Recently Metal Gear, Metal Gear Solid, and Metal Gear Solid: Substance were made available to purchase through PC storefront GOG.
