Columbia Pictures and Kojima Productions have plans to bring “Metal Gear Solid” on to the big screen.

During the Metal Gear 25th Anniversary presentation, producer Avi Arad (“X-Men,” “Spider-Man”) announced the video game adaptation is in the works.

“For many years I fought to bring comics to theaters—and video games are the comics of today,” said Arad. “We will take our time and tell the story with all the nuances, idealogy, cautionary tales needed.”

The video game was developed by Konami for the PlayStation console that featured terrific cut scenes, voice acting and combat scenes. The storyline follows Solid Snake, a soldier who infiltrates a nuclear weapons facility to eliminate a terrorist threat.

The video game was originally released in 1998. It later spawned many sequels, prequels and spin-offs for videos and with several comics and novels.

Specific details for the movie were not revealed at this time, but we will update as we hear more on this project.
