Ummm, interesting, and Nice Contra will be first. That would be amazing(and take some cues of Independence Day) would be nice, i think i know what compromise you've in mind
Actually, that was the compromise. Have McTiernan do Contra and Carpenter do Metal Gear. Honestly, it'd probably be a while before Metal Gear gets considered a viable farm for movies, even with how cinematic it is, and by the time it would be, I imagine Rollerball would've happened and McTiernan would've been pretty much out of the director pool for good.
