David Hayter, the gruff voice behind Metal Gear Solid‘s lead character, has written the script for the upcoming Lost Planet movie currently in production.
Warner Bros. will be distributing the film based on Capcom’s Xbox 360 game, with the developer co-financing half of the film’s production. Seaside Entertainment will be doing the shooting sometime in the future, possibly coinciding with its live-action remake of Ghost in the Shell with Dreamworks.
Lost Planet is currently Capcom’s third game-based movie, with Street Fighter and Onimusha movies in the works. The developer’s Resident Evil horror franchise has already seen film success.
Solid Snake voice actor David Hayter has ample experience in screenwriting, having worked on the first two X-Men movies for Marvel Comics.
