Henry Golding in Talks to Play Snake Eyes in G.I. Joe Spinoff

-

Paramount Pictures is in talks with Henry Golding (Last Christmas, Crazy Rich Asians) to star in G.I. Joe spinoff Snake Eyes, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Skydance production will be directed by Robert Schwentke (Divergent films) from a script by Evan Spiliotopoulos. Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Brian Goldner are producing.

Snake Eyes would mark the third G.I. Joe film produced by Paramount Pictures. The first film, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, earned $302.5 million worldwide in 2009, while the second installment, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, grossed $375.7 million globally. Ray Park played Snake Eyes in both those films.


On the packaging of the original Hasbro toy, Snake Eyes was said to be proficient in 12 different unarmed fighting systems (Karate, Kung-Fu, Jujitsu) and highly skilled in the use of edged weapons. He had received extensive training in mountaineering, underwater demolitions, jungle, desert and arctic survival, and some form of holistic medicine. He was a qualified expert of all NATO and Warsaw pact small arms.

The mysterious character is one of the original and most popular members of the G.I. Joe Team, and is known for his relationships with Scarlett and Storm Shadow.

THR adds that the Snake Eyes movie is said to center on the character seeking revenge for his father’s death by joining the ninja clan, in process finding acceptance.


The news comes on the heels of the announcement that Paramount and Hasbro are developing another G.I. Joe spinoff as well. Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec are writing the script for what is described as an ensemble piece, with one of the characters said to be Chuckles. The character is known for his undercover and infiltration work.
