Derek Connolly has been signed to write the script of the upcoming Metal Gear Solid movie adaptation. The writer is mostly known for his work on the 2015’s box office hit Jurassic World, as well as the upcoming sequel, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The Metal Gear Solid movie project has been pending for a long time, but it seems like Sony Pictures is making a definitive push now that the studio has improved its financial situation thanks to the success of Spider-Man: Homecoming.

The news of Connolly’s involvement have been revealed by Variety. The movie is being directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, whose most recent work includes this year’s Kong: Skull Island. The two actually got to work together during that film’s production, as Connolly was brought in to polish the script of that film.

The Metal Gear Solid film will attempt to adapt the long-running stealth-action videogame series created by Hideo Kojima, although it is unknown what events in the timeline will be depicted. In fact, it is not known whether Kojima will have any involvement in the project, although he has remained in good terms with Sony since launching his own independent studio.

Sony Pictures currently working on more movie adaptations, like the Uncharted film starring Tom Holland, and the reboot of the Resident Evil series, this time with a tone much closer to horror.
