Internet reports, citing an interview with British magazine Nuts, state that Christian Bale is keen on starring as Solid Snake in the Metal Gear Solid movie.

No solid info on the movie has been revealed, although Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima did confirm that the movie project was underway back at E3 2006.

"I have received many offers to adapt Metal Gear Solid. It has taken a long time, but we have finally settled on an arrangement," said Kojima. "False facts aside, a movie project is underway. I have finalized a Class-A contract with a party in Hollywood."

At this time no official casting information has been announced.
