Following Hideo Kojima's confirmation that a Metal Gear Solid movie is in the pipeline, Solid Snake's dad has announced that a contract with a top Hollywood studio has finally been, er, finalised.

In a feature in the Kojima Productions brochure handed out at E3, Kojima said: "I have received many offers to adapt Metal Gear Solid. It has taken a long time, but we have finally settled on an arrangement.

"False facts aside, a movie project is underway. I have finalized a Class-A contract with a party in Hollywood."

Those "false facts" would probably include rumours that Uwe Boll would direct the film - something which Kojima confirmed is most definitely not happening.

There's no word on writers or, more importantly, actors yet either. But Kojima has repeatedly stated that he had no intention of adapting the series into a film unless he was entirely happy with the whole set up, so we're not going to find Ross Kemp taking time out from Ultimate Force or anything silly like that.
