Snake Eyes Filming Begins Japan with a Special Event!

-

Paramount Pictures has announced that Snake Eyes filming has begun in Japan and the cast and crew participated in a special event at the Hie-jinja Shrine to mark the occasion. The talent received a traditional blessing at the shrine ahead of the Tokyo shooting. In attendance were stars Henry Golding, Andrew Koji, Haruka Abe, Iko Uwais, and Takehiro Hira, as well as drector Robert Schwentke, executive producers Jeff Waxman and Erik Howsam, and stunt coordinator Kenji Tanigaki. You can view photos and a video from the event below!

Snake Eyes is scheduled for an October 23, 2020 release. The Skydance production, which previously filmed in Vancouver, is directed by Schwentke (Divergent films) from a script by Evan Spiliotopoulos. Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Brian Goldner are producing. David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger are also executive producing.

We know so far that Henry Golding is playing Snake Eyes, Andrew Koji is Storm Shadow, Samara Weaving plays Scarlett, Úrsula Corberó portrays The Baroness, and Iko Uwais is Hard Master.

Snake Eyes will 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.

The Snake Eyes movie is said to center on the character seeking revenge for his father’s death by joining the Arashikage Clan, a ninja clan based in Japan.
