In a recent interview with IGN on their Comic-Con live show in San Diego, Metal Gear Solid movie director Jordan Vogt-Roberts addressed how he would make a Zelda movie. It’s an idea that has been tried by many, but with little to no success. Here is what he had to say.
“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.”
“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.”
Vogt-Roberts also addressed the subject of whether Link would talk or not.
“I actually fully think Link should not speak the entire film. I would do a film where he’s a silent protagonist.”
