Machine Gun Kelly has put his hand up to play Link for the Legend of Zelda live-action movie.

The rapper has officially thrown his ring in the hat following the announcement that a Legend of Zelda movie is finally in the works.

The 33-year-old posted a screen grab of the news to his Instagram, with a caption that read: "If I don't play Link, we have a problem."

The 'Bloody Valentine' singer famously dressed up as the Nintendo character with Megan Fox for Halloween last year.

And we must admit, the musician does strike an eerie resemblance to Link, so we could definitely see him hitting the big screen with a silver sword in green tights.

The Legend of Zelda is an iconic action-adventure video game series created by Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi Tezuka and published by Nintendo.

After debuting in 1986, it has become one of the world's most influential and beloved video game franchises.

Wes Ball of the Maze Runner franchise will reportedly direct the live-action film.

The movie is being produced by Miyamoto alongside Avi Arad, a veteran of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The film is being co-financed by Nintendo, and Sony Pictures Entertainment is also backing the project, which is weird considering they make PlayStation.

In a tweet from the official Nintendo account on Twitter, Miyamoto said Tuesday (November 7): "This is Miyamoto. I have been working on the live-action film of The Legend of Zelda for many years now with Avi Arad-san, who has produced many mega hit films.

"I have asked Avi-san to produce this film with me, and we have now officially started the development of the film with Nintendo itself heavily involved in the production.

"It will take time until its completion, but I hope you look forward to seeing it."

Not word yet on when it will be released.
