Hideo Kojima and Nicolas Winding Refn could be working on something together

Among the most recognized video game developers, Hideo Kojima is undoubtedly the most cinephile, or at least, the one who has winked the most to the world of cinema (70% of my body is made of movies, he says). Its star saga, Metal Gear Solid, has already surprised by its approach to the forms (also the clichés) of spy movies, although with a very personal touch. Well known is also his relationship with Guillermo del Toro (with whom he worked in the unfortunate Silent Hills ).

Another of Kojima’s super friends is Nicolas Winding Refn, a Danish director known for Drive (2011) or The Neon Demon (2016). In fact, Winding Refn himself is featured in Death Stranding, Kojima’s latest game, while Kojima makes a cameo appearance in Refn’s Amazon series   Too Old to Die Young.

For that reason, it should come as no surprise that Kojima and Winding Refn are maintaining their relationship. However, judging by the repeated and long telematic meetings that the two creatives have had, it seems that they are planning something. First it was Kojima on May 14 who tweeted that they had had a two-and-a-half hour conversation “which made him feel energetic.”

Two weeks later, Winding Refn tweeted another photo of his meeting with Kojima, saying that they were “going for a walk” by making a pun on the name of the movie Drive.

Kojima’s personal assistant published more photos of their meeting, where we see both very concentrated, and even Kojima points things out on paper …

Yes, they both exchanged cameos in their latest works, but a new, deeper collaboration between them, whether in film or video games (or both at the same time, why not?) Would further increase the already high interest they arouse. both creators … not without some controversy.

It has been almost two years since the launch of Death Stranding, and it is already certain that Kojima is working on a new game, with his independent studio Kojima Productions, which according to the latest rumors, would have teamed up with Microsoft on this occasion.

Would you like Kojima and Winding Refn to join forces on a joint project … or can’t you stand either of them?
