Metal Gear Solid movie (Columbia Pictures)

After last week’s talk about convergence, we now run into the announcement that Columbia Pictures is making a movie out of Metal Gear Solid. I’ve never felt it was much of a game anyway, because of its elaborate cinematics, so this seems like no surprise.

Some data:

With sales of more than $1 billion and 20 million units, the “Metal” franchise is one of the most popular and critically acclaimed video game series in the marketplace. Since its debut in 1998, the franchise also has spawned ancillary markets, with 3 million strategy guides, 1.5 million action figures and 200,000 comic books sold. (source)
