Warner Bros’ long-in-the-works Metal Gear Solid movie finally seems to be heading in the right direction; Deadline reports that Oscar Isaac – most recently seen on the big screen as Star Wars’ Poe Dameron – has been cast as iconic lead Solid Snake.

Jordan Vogt-Roberts, director of Kings of Summer and Kong: Skull Island (and a self-professed Metal Gear Solid fan) will continue to helm the project, having been attached to the movie for quite some time – he was initially bought onboard by Warner Bros back in 2014.

The Metal Gear movie’s history goes back much further than that, of course; Hideo Kojima first shared word of a cinematic adaptation for his famed stealth-action franchise in 2006, although little progress appeared to be made in the years following, despite high-profile names like Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman, and even acclaimed director Paul Thomas Anderson being linked to the project at one time or another.
