[IMGW]http://media.1up.com/media?id=3141486[/IMGW]Rumors of a movie version of Metal Gear Solid go back -- way back. Since 2004, there's been talk of a movie version of Kojima's most successful series. However, during this three year period of time there hasn't been a single studio attached to the project. That changed today at D.I.C.E.

As GameSpot reports, Sony Pictures Entertainment vice chairman Yair Landau revealed at this year's D.I.C.E. Summit that they're "working with the Metal Gear guys." However, there was no indication about how far along they were in the process of getting Snake onto the silver screen.

This news come as a dismay to Boll Believers (talking about you, Patrick), as now there is absolutely no conceivable way that Sony Pictures would risk letting the director of Postal touch a franchise they're looking to make money off of (even if he's read the script). We lack those lucrative German tax loopholes in America. You're more likely to see the directors of Epic Movie helm a Metal Gear Solid movie before Boll does.
