Hideo Kojima is a podcaster and movie buff who enjoys keeping his game projects under wraps. The developer of Metal Gear routinely engages in cryptic hype, promoting his next games with strange, menacing puzzles that give away themes he cares more about than specific game details. However, he is open about the people he is collaborating on this with.
Kojima has started working with directors and movie stars for inclusion in his games as a result of the intersection of his ardent cinephilia and his increasingly cinematic games. The Walking Dead actor Norman Reedus, as well as The Shape of Water and Hellboy director Guillermo del Toro, Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn, and Hannibal actor Mads Mikkelsen, were all present in Death Stranding, for instance. In order to capture their complete face in uncomfortable detail for possible recreation in a game, celebrities are frequently forced to sit in front of horrific camera rigs.
S.S. Rajamouli, the filmmaker of this year’s breakthrough hit RRR, is none other than Kojima’s most recent victim (partner).
Kojima tweeted fervently in support of the film’s Japanese premiere this week. The creators of RRR have chosen to distribute the movie in Japan in light of the incredible response it received in the United States. In Japan, the movie debuted on October 21.
SS Rajamouli was pictured inside Kojima Productions by Hideo Kojima and posted on Twitter; the director was seated within a full-body scanner. The scanners could aid in producing accurate CG, three-dimensional representations of a person. The scans might indicate that Kojima is considering using the director’s visage in one of his next games.
