In a sit-down interview with IGN, director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, notable for films such as The Kings of Summer and Kong: Skull Island, shares his ideas on what makes a good video game movie. During the discussion, Vogt-Roberts, who recently turned in a script for a Metal Gear Solid film, explains how Super Metroid taught him concepts such as altruism, and offers his pitch for a Metroid movie:

“They’ll never let me. It’s too crazy. It legitimately would be her (Samus) alone. It would be a little bit of her talking to herself. As soon as they introduce other talking characters in those games, to me it loses everything. You put her alone and it’s almost got a little bit more to do with the silence of a movie like Drive, like the quietness, and having it be like a real, intense mood piece, but mixed with sci-fi.”

You can watch the full interview below. The Metroid discussion begins at the 10:54 mark:
