Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts may go from The Kings Of Summer to Metal Gear Solid: The Movie...

One of the most impressive movies of last year, that flew under lots of peoples' radars, was Jordan Vogt-Roberts' terrific The Kings Of Summer. A Sundance hit, it was scheduled for a summer cinema release, and then never got quite the level of attention it deserved when it did finally hit cinemas.

Vogt-Roberts himself did get noticed though, and Deadline is now reporting that he's in "early talks" with Sony to take on the long-mooted movie of Metal Gear Solid.

There's been talk of a live action movie based around Konami's videogame series for some time, and earlier this year, producer Avi Arad told us that "believe it or not, after a decade, we are now literally starting to develop the script, the director. It took a long time to close this deal. It's now done, finished, the vision is in place".

There's been no confirmation that Jordan Vogt-Roberts has taken the job at this stage, but if his doing so also has the by-product of shining more light on The Kings Of Summer, then that's a very good thing. More as we hear it...
