Hideo Kojima is a man well known for his.. unique views on video game development. The creator of the Metal Gear series and Death Stranding has never been shy about leaning into his more eccentric ideas, but this latest one might just take the biscuit.
Kojima's Twitter account is an absolute gold mine for bizarre tangents. The legendary dev often likes to lead readers on a merry goose chase by posting hints about upcoming games, fake hints, fake real hints and more in a tangled spider's web that often straddles the line of utter gobbledygook and pure genius.
Death Stranding: Director's Cut is Kojima's latest project, which will be launching later this month. Take a look at the trailer right here.
Anyway, down to business. Kojima has been on a bit of a bender recently, tweeting about projects that never quite came to fruition. Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen is probably best known for his roles in Hannibal, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story or Quantum Of Solace, but also appeared in Death Stranding as Clifford Unger. As it turns out, this isn't the only project Kojima and Mikkelsen were meant to work on together.
Yes, you did read that correctly. Kojima pitched the idea of a having Mads star in a project entitled MADS MAX. Sadly, there's no more info on the project and we likely won't get any. Personally, I like to think that it would have unlocked the Mads/Max multiverse where Mel Gibson, Tom Hardy and Mads Mikkelsen have a showdown to see who's the ultimate Max (or Mads).
The thing that really gets me is that he says "he seemed to think I was joking. I was serious, though." I would have paid good money to have been a fly on the wall of that conversation. Mads staring blankly into middle distance trying desperately not to laugh in the face of his good friend.
