The existence of a work in progress Metal Gear Solid movie has been known about since Hideo Kojima spilled the beans at E3 last May, but details were sparse to say the least. Information is still rather light, but speaking to GameSpot, Sony Pictures Entertainment vice chairman Yair Landau has confirmed that his studio is working on the movie.

"We're working with the Metal Gear guys," Landau told GameSpot. "It's a very cinematic game, it really lends itself to movie telling. But the question is, 'How do you translate Snake's experience into a full arc that conforms to what audiences expect on the large screen?'"

And that's not all Landau had to say. The company is apparently also in talks over an EverQuest movie; a decision no doubt influenced by the World of Warcraft movie in development at Warner Bros.

The Peter Jackson produced Halo movie was thought to be the first film that would successfully take a video game franchise to the big screen. Things went slightly pear-shaped for Master Chief back in October 2006 though, when Universal and Fox pulled out of the movie deal, and it was revealed that the movie had been postponed.
