Metal Gear Solid the Movie by Nether83 Metal Gear Solid the Movie by Nether83
Whew! Complete at last. The next step from my previous movie poster based on the first Metal Gear game. This is for Metal Gear Solid as you can see from the title.

Holy crap, this took long! Mostly because I did it every now and then in short sessions. I lost track of the hours.

Most people probably recognize the characters and for those of you who don't, shame on you. Everyone knows this game, and everyone has their own opinion on who should play the characters if a movie was made(it is apparently still in the progress of pre-production). This is my take on the matter.

Main Cast:

Solid Snake - Michael Biehn. As it was in my first poster.
Liquid Snake - Michael Biehn. Du-uh! Clone baby!
Hal Emmerich - Chris Gorham. Just the right mix of pretty boy and geek.
Meryl Silverburgh - Tea Leoni. Possibly because I found such a nice picture of her.
Revolver Ocelot - Lee Van Cleef. Ain't no other! He's always been Ocelot.

I also put some thought on some of the other cast members:

Vulcan Raven - The Rock. Mandatory wrestler/actor.
Colonel Campbell - Richard Crenna. Just like last time.
Mei Ling - Zhang Zhiyi. A pretty asian girl. What did you expect?
Big Boss - SEAN CONNERY! Appearing in flashbacks of course.

I used the corresponding actors as reference as well as some game art. Credit for the Metal Gear REX blueprints in the back go to Yoji Shinkawa.

Done in Illustrator CS3 and Photoshop CS3.

Awesome poster :), other ideas for casting; i can't help but think that Jackie Earl Haley would make a fantastic Psycho Mantis, and Cate Blanchett is the absolute spitting image of The Boss, its kinda scary XD

Is that true? the Metal Gear Wiki doesn't say that.

crashguy1 Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2011
i can't really say if it's true or not. you see i read that on regular wikipedia (since my internet has been blocked from every freaking website except wikipedia by my parents) but, anyway it said metal gear solids creator had seconds thoughts abouts it talking about he didn't want the metal gear franchise to go down the drain if the movie didn't do so good so it was cancelled but im still not sure myself if it really is so i guess we just have to leave it up either fate or luck yah know.

hell yeah, when i found out about it i was really excited but, that was like a year or two ago and i was still waiting. but, yeah i would still like to see a metal gear solid movie, would you.

of course, for me it would be the greatest movie of all (depending on how good they could make it)
Reply
:iconcrashguy1:
crashguy1 Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2011
yeah and thats the thing about it. you and me would love to see it regardless of how good or bad it may be but to those who are new to the metal gear series who don't know about it and go to see the movie only to find out it sucks might be disuaded from buying the games which would probably bring the games reputation crashing down. you know what i mean.

p.s. i won't be able to comment until i come back to baltimore which always veriys so don't expect a response anytime soon after you respond to this comment okay.

Who would you cast in the role of Grey Fox? I know he has very little face time in the Shadow Moses story but he does still need a voice an' a face.

Very awesome work.

And your choices for the characters are perfect as well. Thumbs up for Dwayne The Rock Johnson as Vulcan raven! I think you, me, and two other people I know have thought of that idea.

Excellent job!
