Jordan Vogt-Roberts, the man who is currently directing helming the film adaptation of Metal Gear stopped by IGN to talk about the state of video game adaptations as well as the medium’s impact on films. When talking about his love of video games and more importantly the Metroid series, he dropped a quick pitch on how he thinks the series could be adapted to a feature film.
“I have a pitch for a Metroid movie. They’ll never let me. It’s too crazy. It legitimately would be [Samus] alone. It would be a little bit of her talking to herself. As soon as they introduce other talking characters in those games, to me it loses everything. You put her alone and it’s almost got more to do with the silence of a movie like Drive. Like the quietness and having it be like a real, intense mood piece, but mixed with sci-fi.”
Personally, I’m down for his isolated Metroid film whether it be a fan-film, indie art-piece or blockbuster film as well as his belief that Metroid Prime Trilogy needs to head to Switch now.
