Jordan Vogt-Roberts Explains How He'd Handle a LEGEND OF ZELDA Movie

Jordan Vogt-Roberts is really throwing ideas left and right for movie adaptations of video games. He’s currently attached to a Metal Gear Solid film and roughly a week ago pitched an idea for a Metroid movie. The Metroid film sounds really good, which is why I was really intrigued about his pitch for a Legend of Zelda movie.

I actually think that Link should not speak the entire film.

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.

So, maybe like a Skyward Sword film? I personally, would like a bit more detail of what his thoughts are before I sing praises, but the general idea sounds interesting. Of course, there’s no idea if Nintendo will hire Vogt-Roberts for these movies. Heck, we don’t even know if they’ll happen. I would say it all depends on how the Super Mario Bros. film with Illumination works out. What would you like to see in a Zelda film? Should Link be silent like in the games?
