IGN recently did a video interview with director Jordan Vogt-Roberts. Vogt-Roberts is known for directing films such as Kong: Skull Island and The Kings of Summer. Well, in the IGN video interview, he talks about how Super Metroid impacted him as a child, as well as how it inspired him and other filmmakers that grew up with video games. IGN and Vogt-Roberts then discuss an idea that Vogt-Roberts has for a Metroid movie. Here’s what he said about the matter, as well as the video interview he was in. The Metroid discussion begins 10:54 into the video.
“They’ll never let me. It’s too crazy. It legitimately would be [Samus] alone. It would be a little bit of her talking to herself. As soon as they introduce other talking characters in those games, to me it loses everything. You put her alone and it’s almost got a little bit more to do with the silence of a movie like Drive, like the quietness, and having it be like a real, intense mood piece, but mixed with sci-fi.”
