Film director Guillermo del Toro has said he still wants to work with game developer Hideo Kojima, "anywhere on anything."
The duo were involved, along with actor Norman Reedus, in cancelled horror project Silent Hills for Konami.
About Kojima-San: I would work with him any time, anywhere on anything. We know it.

Silent Hills marked del Toro's second axed game project, following the cancellation of inSANE by defunct publisher THQ. The game receieved a playable teaser in the form of P.T., which was removed from the PlayStation Store prior to confirmation of Silents Hills' shelving.
Tensions between Konami and Kojima have been rising all year, with the cancellation of Silent Hills and the removal of the Kojima Productions logo from The Phantom Pain's box. It's understood that Kojima has a non-compete clause in his contract, which means that if he truly has left the company he cannot sign with another developer until at least December.
