Snake Eyes is picking up the mantle of the GI Joe movies, and filming is now underway.
Following 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra – a film that did decent money but hardly won fans over – Paramount and Hasbro has been juggling what to do next with the G.I. Joe movie franchise.
Finally, a decade on, we have an answer. Rather than going for a further sequel or a straight reboot, we’re getting a spin-off.
The new film is Snake Eyes – nothing to do with the Brian De Palma thriller that Nicolas Cage headlined – and the full cast has been revealed. Henry Golding, Andrew Koji, Haruka Abe, Iko Uwais, Takehiro Hira and Samara Weaving are in the ensemble for this one.
The script has been penned by Evan Spiliotopoulos, and it’ll follow – as you may have guessed – the character of ninja commando Snake Eyes in the film. Robert Schwentke is directing.
The movie is scheduled for release on October 23rd 2020, and a start of production photo call took place in Japan at the end of last week. That’s the picture you see at the top of the article, and we’ll keep you posted as we hear more on the film.
