Director of Pan’s Labyrinth and Crimson Peak, Guillermo del Toro, recently commented on future collaboration with Metal Gear mastermind, Hideo Kojima.
“I’ll do whatever the fuck he wants,” del Toro said, gesturing towards Kojima at the DICE summit in Las Vegas this past Thursday. “The only things I want to work on are the ones that motivate me. The only things I want to do are where I’ll have fun, and when we work together we always have fun.”
Kojima added, “Of course, I’d love to [work with del Toro on something…] I don’t care what it is. It will probably be really tough. A game or a movie, I don’t care, we’ll do it.”
Although the specifics are still unclear for what Hideo Kojima’s new company, Kojima Productions, will be working on for its PlayStation 4 and PC title, the future seems bright for the company’s growing list of partners, including sightings of Kojima and Norman Reedus (Boondock Saints, The Walking Dead) recently coming to light on Twitter. The stage is clearly being set for a large project.
“At first, I thought I’d take a year to make a small indie game, or a movie, or write a novel […] But then I talked with friends and acquaintances from all over the world and pretty much everyone said the same thing… sorry, but you don’t have time for that, you have to go back to working on something big, because that’s what people expect from you.”
Yes. So much yes.
