METAL GEAR SOLID CASTING

METAL GEAR is a tragic action drama. A lonely American covert ops specialist is sent to assassinate his own mentor turned-traitor, which is hard enough… but what will he do when he discovers that the target is also his father? An intense thrill ride in the vein of The Bourne Supremacy, this short film is intended for Major Film Festival distribution. Based on characters from the game/graphic novel series of the same name.

SEEKING:

[ BIG BOSS/JOHN DOE ]
(late 50s, Caucasian) Imposing, commanding, charming and dangerous. Known to be the Greatest Soldier of the 20th Century, he secretly betrays his country, convinced that the U.S. first betrayed him. He is also guilty of betraying his own son, whom he never quite connects to, though the opportunity is there. The boss can disarm you with his charisma… right before putting one between your eyes. Physically fit, full grey or white hair, some stage combat/martial arts preferred. Lead Role.

[ GREY FOX ]
(30-35, Caucasian) Intimidating and imposing. He looks like he’s been killing men since he was a boy, because he has. Physically fit, stage combat/martial arts required. Supporting.

[ COLONEL CAMPBELL ]
(50s, Caucasian) Commanding, confident presence, booming voice. Boss’ second-in-command, he’s in charge of Combat Training, but he’s in for a surprise today. Full grey or white hair. Supporting.

[ SCHNEIDER ]
(late 20s, open ethnicity) short fight scene, some stage combat/martial arts required. Featured.

[ YOUNG MILITARY RECRUITS ]
Open ethnicity.
