Metal Gear Solid movie on hold even before it got going

To put things in perspective, the upcoming Prince of Persia flick took around 20 years to go from game to film. Perhaps it's too early to give up on a Metal Gear Solid film just yet

Previously, there'd been talk of a Metal Gear Solid movie going through the Hollywood pipes. Film producer Mike De Luca -- whose credits include Wag the Dog and Ghost Rider -- spoke to Collider.com in March of 2008 about the potential for the project; and yesterday he spoke to them again to say it wasn't happening.

De Luca says in a brief conversation with Collider's Steve Weintraub that the movie is, for the time being, abandoned.

Video game blog Kotaku claims several sources close to the project confirm it's on-hold status. However, the blog reports that the issue had more to do with money than with protecting the Metal Gear franchise.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
