It was only last week we heard the director of the Metal Gear movie, Jordan Vogt-Roberts, talk about his crazy ideas for a potential Metroid film. Now, during an interview with IGN on its Comic-Con live show, he's revealed how he would approach a movie about The Legend Of Zelda, if given the opportunity.
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, the lasers and Tron lines that happen in the newer games, but in a way that’s not overwhelming.
He explained how "quirky and bizarre" The Legend of Zelda actually was in contrast to other fantasy series:
The thing about Zelda is Zelda is not Lord of the Rings, right? You cannot forget how quirky and bizarre Zelda is.
I think you need to find a way to actually fuse the traditional Zelda and the very new Zelda.
He also said he would ensure Link remained a silent protagonist, and would not allow him to speak for the entire film.
Would you like to see The Legend of Zelda on the silver screen eventually? Do you think Link as a silent protagonist in a movie would work? Tell us below.
