Remember the Metal Gear Solid movie announced in 2012? Well it's apparently still happening, and it has a new screenwriter!
Deadline reports that up-and-coming British writer Jay Basu has been hired by Sony Pictures to pen the film, helmed by The Kings of Summer directer Jordan Vogt-Roberts. Basu's most prolific credit to date is as a co-writer on last year's Monsters: Dark Continent, but he's nonetheless in demand - Universal tapped him last year for their classic monster movie relaunch.
News on the Metal Gear movie front has been worryingly quiet of late, so at least this confirms the project is still going ahead.
