Sony Pictures confirms it is filming the movie adaptation of Metal Gear Solid.

Earlier this year, Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima announced that an undisclosed company was developing a movie adaptation of his popular stealth series. Following the addresses at the D.I.C.E. Summit, Sony Pictures Entertainment vice chairman Yair Landau confirmed with GameSpot that his studio was working on a live-action film based on the Metal Gear Solid series.

Landau told GameSpot, "We're working with the Metal Gear guys. It's a very cinematic game, it really lends itself to movie telling. But the question is, 'How do you translate Snake's experience into a full arc that conforms to what audiences expect on the large screen?'"

He hinted that Sony Pictures is interested in creating more game-based movies. "There are other games we are looking to develop. We're working with one of my favorite producers right now on an idea for an EverQuest movie." No specific producers or directors have been announced for the Metal Gear Solid and EverQuest films.
