Say hello to Snake Eyes:

http://i.usatoday.net/life/_photos/2008/03/21/joex-large.jpg

This is the first character reveal from next August's G.I. Joe movie the mute, faceless, black-clad ninja commando, among the most famous of the good guys from the 1980s incarnation of the decades-old Hasbro toy line.

Just as Paramount breathed new life into the Transformers franchise last summer, the studio is hoping to do the same to this sci-fi soldier series about a team of military experts battling the villainous Cobra organization.

G.I. Joe refers to the team, not any one person, and Snake Eyes is its mysterious lone wolf. In the movie, shooting now and set for August 2009, this fearsome figure is played by Ray Park (Darth Maul in the first Star Wars prequel).

Hexagram 63 is named 既濟 (ji4 ji4), "Already Fording". Other variations include "after completion" and "already completed" or "already done" . Its inner trigram is ☲ (離 li2) radiance = (火) fire, and its outer trigram is ☵ (坎 kan3) gorge = (水) water.

Sigh. I can't help it. I have to bitch. He's holding his left hand on top, over his right. That means he's a left-handed swordsman. Such a thing would never come out of Japan. All Japanese sword schools forced everyone, even lefties, to use the right because facing a southpaw was so dangerous and confusing that they systematically got rid of it. That, and they wanted everyone to master the techniques the exact same way they were taught; right handed.

I hope it has the Dreadnoks, or at least Zartan. Oh, and Tomax and Xamot as well.... and Tunnel Rat, Mercer, and Croc Master.... and Lightfoot and Wetsuit (S.E.A.L.) and Firefly and SubZero and IceVipers and Shipwreck, and of Course Mutt and Junkyard and also Storm Shadow.


Otherwise, fuck that shit.

I'd imagine that Destro will be filling that role. Let's break down the bros. shall we?

They're identical twins, who finish each other's sentences, and fight in a style which can only really be described as Gymkata. Yeah I can live without them.

I hope the Snake Eyes Storm Shadow clan brother storyline will be heavily emphasized. If it's going to be a Duke & Co. only story with Snakes and Storm Shadow as background I will be sorely disappointed.

To be honest, I only vaguely remember them from the cartoons or comics. Most of my impressions of GiJoe characters are based on the action figures. If a guy looked cool (Ninja Mask or Robotic-looking usually, or any number of the vipers) I liked him and I didn't care what side he was on. I guess the twins looked cool to me, for whatever reason. It was probably the big scar on Xamot's face.... or the metal boots with cobra-shaped kneepads.



I hope the Snake Eyes Storm Shadow clan brother storyline will be heavily emphasized. If it's going to be a Duke & Co. only story with Snakes and Storm Shadow as background I will be sorely disappointed.You and me both.

I think I read that Destro will be the main villain. That should be bad-ass.

Also, please tell me this isn't really a picture of Duke and Scarlett as they will appear in the film:

Jesus I hope not.

Channing Tatum is supposed to be Duke, and Scarlett is going to be played by someone who doesn't look like a caricature.

From what I hear there is a certain grittiness tha they're going for with this movie, so I think the above picture is just cosplayers.

I guess, then, that the old theme song won't be making an appearance:


Yo Joe!
He'll fight for freedom where ever there's trouble.
GI Joe is there.

It's GI Joe against Cobra and Destro
Fighting to save the day.
He never gives up.
He's always there,
Fighting for freedom over land and air

GI Joe- A real American hero
GI Joe is there

GI Joe is the codename for American's daring, highly trained
special mission force.
It's purpose, to defend human freedom against Cobra-
a ruthless, terrorist organization determined to rule the world.

He never gives up.
He'll stay til the fight's won.
GI Joe will dare.

This is what they're saying in the OP link

Sommers stresses that the movie is an origins story, so his challenge is to explain why the bad guy wears a metal mask, why Snake Eyes doesn't talk and other strange things kids took for granted. "For people who know nothing about it, it'll make sense," Sommers says. "And to people who love this stuff, it'll show where they all came from."

It says Baroness is Sienna Miller, Destro is Chistopher Eccleston, Marlon Wayans is Ripcord, Denni Quaid is Hawk, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt is Cobra Commander.

Obviously there can't be too many, or any, deaths of the main characters if they hope to continue the franchise. However, there better be plenty of generic good guy and bad guy deaths or the movie will suck hard. If they do it right it can be as good as the first two X-Men movies. If they do it wrong it can be as disapointing as the third X-Men movie.

And no Lady Jaye makes me sad. :(

By Jesse Spero
LOS ANGELES, Calif. --
Hot on the heels of the success of "Transformers," Paramount is bringing yet another 1980's toy to the big screen, but instead of otherworldly shape-shifting robots, get ready for a real American hero!

"G.I Joe" is currently in production and set for a summer 2009 release, but fans are already getting a sneak peak at some of the action.

Paramount has released two photos of the fan-favorite character Snake Eyes, played by Ray Park, of Darth Maul "Star Wars" fame. Snake Eyes holds an impressive title according to "G.I. Joe" director Stephen Sommers.

"He's the world's greatest ninja, but he's also next-generation. He's not afraid to use a sword one second, and a split-second later he's pulling out his Glock," Sommers told USA Today (http://www.usatoday.com/life/movies/news/2008-03-20-gi-joe-preview_N.htm). "His chief nemesis is arguably the world's other great ninja, Storm Shadow. The two grew up together, were blood brothers and now are mortal enemies."

Access Hollywood caught up with Channing Tatum while promoting the Iraq war drama "Stop-Loss." Channing, who plays G.I. Joe's leader, Duke, admitted he was apprehensive about stepping into another war film, but says "G.I. Joe" is not your typical combat filled movie.

"'G.I. Joe' is now a war film," Channing told Access. "I was afraid it was going to be a real war film, and actually it's nothing like that-- it's 'X-Men' with 'Mission Impossible.'"

As for "G.I. Joe" sticking with its comic book and cartoon roots, Channing couldn't agree more, saying, it’s a comic book "to the tenth degree."

(CLICK HERE (http://www.accesshollywood.com/gallery/1338/gi-joe) to see the cast of 'G.I Joe')

Channing's co-stars, Dennis Quaid and Sienna Miller, are also pumped to dive into this summer blockbuster.

"'G.I. Joe" goes back to when I was a kid, and I thought it would be a lot of fun to be a part of this," Dennis Quaid, who will play Commander Hawk, told Access. "It's a huge popcorn action movie, and a little bit of a cartoon in a sense. The way it's going to be done… it's going to be really exciting."

Access wasn't only talking to the good guys. Sienna Miller, who will portray the diabolical lady of Cobra, The Baroness, revealed the lengths she's going to in order to nail her iconic character.

"[The film] requires a lot of physical training," Sienna told Access. "I have a black wig, guns, and leather… it's all very fantastic!"

Sienna admitted to Access that getting the part of the Baroness down took hard work, even a little homework.

"I've got a rubber gun at home that looks so real. I'm learning how to spin it. I've had it in my car while driving, and I'm terrified I might be pulled over because it looks like a proper gun," Sienna added.

(CLICK HERE (http://video.accesshollywood.com/player/?id=222497) to see Dennis Quaid & Sienna Miller talk "G.I. Joe.")

Rounding out the all-American heroes cast is Rachel Nichols from "Alias," playing Scarlett (cross-bow included), Marlon Wayans as paratrooper Ripcord, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje from "Lost," as Heavy Duty, and Said Taghmaoui of "Vantage Point" fame as Breaker.

On the Cobra side of the fight, Byung-Hun Lee will play Storm Shadow, Snake Eyes ninja nemesis, Arnold Vosloo from "The Mummy" will play the chameleon-like Zartan, Christopher Eccleston will play the evil chromed-domed Destro, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt from "Stop-Loss" has been cast as the leader of the evil Corba army, Cobra Commander.

The film is reportedly an origins story. It could explain why Destro has a chromed head and why Snake Eyes doesn't speak, among other outlandish details of "G.I. Joe" that the cartoon never explained.

"For people who know nothing about it, it'll make sense," Sommers told USA Today. "And to people who love this stuff, it'll show where they all came from."

As for the famous "G.I. Joe" catch phrase --"Now I know, and knowing is half the battle" — which was used in the PSA's that followed the 1980's cartoons, popping up in the 2009 film, a rep from Paramount told Access, "You’ll have to wait and see!"
