Metal Gear Solid has found its Solid Snake in none other than Oscar Isaac. Deadline reports that the Sony adaptation of the hit video game franchise has landed the Star Wars and Ex Machina star in the lead role.

Jordan Vogt-Roberts is set to direct the film, which was written by Derek Connolly (Jurassic World). The latest draft of the script has been turned in, with additional casting expected to start soon.

Created by Hideo Kojima, the Metal Gear game franchise follows Solid Snake, a retired soldier who infiltrates a nuclear weapons disposal facility to neutralize the terrorist threat from Foxhound, a renegade special forces unit. He attempts to liberate their two hostages, the head of DARPA and the president of a major arms manufacturer and stops the terrorists from launching a nuclear strike.
