The man behind the popular Metal Gear Solid franchise has finally revealed a few more details about the film adaptation of the stealth action game.

Aware of the fact that the fans are desperate to hear about what the director of the franchise has in store for them, Kojima did not keep them waiting and shared a few more details of the upcoming film during a developer session at the Eurogamer Expo, which was attended by VC247.

One of the biggest revelations made by him and one that the fans were really anxious to know was that the film will star Solid Snake as the main protagonist.

It was being speculated that the film may start off with Big Boss instead of Solid Snake, but the team behind the film has deemed it more appropriate to follow the order of the Metal Gear Solid video games, the first of which had the same man in the limelight that has been given the torch in the film.

The fans are expected to support this decision as they would not want to see too many experiments being made.

Another thing that the fans were really interested in knowing was the role that the director of the Metal Gear Solid franchise would be playing as far as the film was concerned.

He finally ended the suspense on this matter as well by revealing that he would neither be directing the film, nor work on the script. Instead, he would be attached with the team by taking on a more supervisory role.

While it is not clear what he would be doing in this role, everyone would be hoping to see Kojima involved in everything since he is the man with the magic touch.

One more thing revealed at the Eurogamer Expo was what both he and Avi Arad, the producer of the film, have planned as far as the actor playing the role of Solid Snake is concerned.

He admitted that initially they had planned on casting Hugh Jackman, Wolverine from X-Men, for the role, but later rejected this idea. Instead, they plan on bringing in a new-comer for the role of Solid Snake.

It remains to be seen how the film turns out. The fans would definitely be keeping their fingers crossed since the film adaptations of video games do not enjoy a very good reputation.
