The movie will be based on the 33-year-old video game Konami franchise, which first launched in 1987 on PlayStation. The game follows Solid Snake, a soldier who infiltrates a nuclear weapons facility to neutralize the terrorist threat from Foxhound, a renegade special forces unit.

The script is written by Derek Connolly, and Jordan Vogt-Roberts is directing. It’s actually the dream casting for Oscar, who said he wanted to play the character a year ago!

This popular video game franchise is also getting a screen adaption.
