During an interview with IGN‘s Comic-Con live, Metal Gear Solid director Jordan Vogt-Roberts shared his thoughts on making a Zelda film in the future.
The director behind films such as The Kings Of Summer, Successful Alcoholics, Memoirs of a Manchild, and last but not least Kong: Skull Island is set to direct the upcoming Metal Gear Solid film which has a lot of anticipation surrounding it. Vogt-Roberts recently expressed his interest in adapting another video game, that being The Legend of Zelda franchise, revealing a very clear vision for what his take would be:
“I think you have to find a way to very intensely fuse the pure just sort of fantasy of The Ocarina of Time and The Link to the Past, but then I think you need to find a way to incorporate the newer pseudo-tech stuff — you know…”
One element the director revealed he thinks should carry over from the video game series to a film is Hyrule’s hero Link remaining silent throughout the entire movie just as he has in every installment to the video game series:
“I actually fully think Link should not speak the entire film. I would do a film where he’s a silent protagonist.”
Earlier today, Castlevania executive producer Adi Shankar was reported to be in talks to produce a Legend Of Zelda television series, however, no further details have yet been revealed.
Personally, I think Vogt-Roberts is a great candidate to direct a Zelda movie. Based on his recent success with Kong: Skull Island, he has the chops to pull of a great Zelda film… and you never know maybe we can get a Zelda cinematic universe. Wouldn’t that be something?

Now aware of Rachel’s power, Dick and Kory unite to find her. Escaped from the convent that sought to imprison her, Rachel puts her trust in Gar who reveals his own transformative powers. Seeking refuge, Gar brings Rachel home to his “family” – a group of misfit medical experiments we will come to know as The Doom Patrol (including Cliff Steele aka Robotman, Larry Trainor aka Negative Man and Rita Farr aka Elastiwoman) – in hopes of helping the girl. But what starts as a place of comfort for Rachel, soon turns dark under the scientific curiosity of The Doom Patrol’s leader Dr. Niles Caulder, whose experiment into Rachel’s powers threatens to set free a darkness, and reveal a new level of evil waiting to escape.
