Derek Connolly, who co-wrote the Jurassic World (2015) as well as the film’s upcoming sequel, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, has been brought on to write the latest draft of Sony’s “Metal Gear Solid” adaptation.

Jordan Vogt-Roberts, Connolly’s collaborator on Kong: Skull Island (2017) will direct and Avi Arad (Iron Man) is producing.

Created by Hideo Kojima, the “Metal Gear Solid”‘ video game launched on Sony’s PlayStation in 1998 and follows “Snake”, a soldier who infiltrates a nuclear weapons facility to neutralize the terrorist threat from Foxhound, a renegade special forces unit.

The game was a sequel to “Metal Gear” and “Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake” on the Sony MSX2 home computer platform, which was available from 1983 to 1996, mostly in Japan. However, the PlayStation game introduced Snake to the whole world, proving to be a sensational success, selling more than 6.6 million copies worldwide and setting the bar for future stealth-style shooter games.

Connolly and Jurassic World helmer Colin Trevorrow were discovered by Steven Spielberg following their breakout Sundance hit Safety Not Guaranteed (2012).

Snake, or Solid Snake to use his…er, full name, is voiced by David Hayter, who is also known for co-writing the screenplays to X-Men (2000), X-Men 2 (2003) and Watchmen (2009). Kojima has stated that he originally wanted Hugh Jackman for the role of Solid Snake and Christian Bale had apparently previously expressed interest, but there’s no news on casting as yet.
