Even though the last partnership between Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro was cut short when their Silent Hills project got cancelled, in an interview with IGN the director of the newly opened Kojima Productions said he still wants to make something with del Toro. This prospective new project would be created under the Kojima Productions banner, but it wouldn’t necessarily be a video game.
Kojima told IGN, “I have no idea what I’ll be working on with him, if it’ll be a game, a movie, anime, but someday I definitely want to create something with him.”
It’s not a done deal by any means, but it is something the two of them discuss “every now and then.” The Metal Gear Solid creator’s feelings of regret over their Silent Hills game, and his hope that there will be a new partnership in future, are both reciprocated by Guillermo del Toro. So it seems promising that something exciting, whatever it may be, will spark from their discussions before too long.
