Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts is attached to Sony’s film adaptation of Hideo Kojima’s popular stealth series and, if nothing else, fans can be assured that the director knows his Metal Gear. Vogt-Roberts recently tweeted out a take about some of the MGS entries that are not quite as critically adored as others:
Just putting it out there that PORTABLE OPS and PEACE WALKER are two of the most brave and affecting entries in the MGS series and I don’t think they get the attention they deserve because they were on the PSP.

Little news has eeked out about the Metal Gear movie since Vogt-Roberts was put on the project but it’s good to have signs he’s thinking about Snake and company.
