Equilibrium writer targeted for MGS film

Project back on track following strikes.

Kurt Wimmer is top of the list to write and presumably direct a Metal Gear Solid film.

Producer Michael De Luca told Coming Soon that he hopes to meet with Wimmer for talks in "the next few weeks".

De Luca was also keen to get the ball rolling with the MGS film now that the Writers Guild strikes have come to an end.

Kurt Wimmer was responsible for writing and directing stylised science-fiction thriller Equilibrium from 2003. Which was much better than his more recent film, Ultraviolet.

Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima confirmed a film was in the pipeline as far back as May 2006.

Perhaps Uwe Boll was too busy.
