“I love films too much that maybe if I start making a movie I would never finish it,” he stated. “People tell me, ‘Kojima, you’re too demanding of movies. You always find something that you will want to fix and you will never finish a movie.'”
Asked if he wish to adapt one in every of his online game works for the massive display or department out with a completely new concept, he stated the latter. (There is a Metal Gear Solid movie already in the works). Kojima went on to say that if he have been to make a film, it may take the type of a big-budget blockbuster or a small indie movie with two characters in a room.
Overall, Kojima stated he has “many ideas in my head” for a film, although he didn’t share specifics on any of them.
Also throughout his speak at Tribeca, Kojima supplied an replace on how Death Stranding is coming along and mentioned why actor Norman Reedus was naked in the reveal trailer.
