233w ago - Apparently, a picture (below) of what appears to be a movie poster advertising the new Metal Gear Solid movie has just sneaked onto the Internet today.
To quote: The poster, which is believed to have been taken at Sony Pictures in Culver City, CA, shows Christian Bale (most likely Solid Snake) and Daniel Craig (most likely Liquid Snake) along with a scheduled release for July 2011 and Hideo Kojima's name at the top.
This would undoubtedly be awesome news if we could confirm it as being 100% legit, but until then it'll remain a rumor as there are plenty of individuals out there with decent Photoshop skills.

As other users have already stated, the image is an obvious fake. However the possibility of a MGS movie series is very likely.
In a time where non best selling games lacking story like Bloodrayne can find resources to pull it of, a succesfull and literary decent series like MGS should most certainly be taken into consideration.
Christian Bale is an amazing actor (although i don't like his Batman), i just don't see him pulling of a succesfull Solid Snake (at least for me). But in many cases of video game characters making it to the big screen, most people aren't pleased with the casting beforehand, i guess it's just really hard to find a face for an already established character.
Here's to hoping for a decent MGS movie series with equal decent actors and production values.
