‘Snake Eyes’ Film Begins Japanese Production

2 min read
YO JOE!

Growing up as a kid in the 80s and being a G.I. Joe fan (yes, I had the aircraft carrier), the film versions of this property have been massively disappointing. Even when the last one started to turn things around it still ended up with a whole lot of problems and an uncertain future. With Hasbro taking more formal control of their projects and working with Skydance and MGM, they’ve now got a new film coming up with Snake Eyes.

Serving as an origin story for the character, it’s scheduled for an October 16th, 2020 debut and production for the Japanese portion kicked off today, which lead to the release of the logo above. The film started filming in Vancouver back in October and wrapped up there in Early December. We don’t know the budget for it yet but we’re also expecting it to be a smaller film and not as special effects heavy, which should work in its favor for a project like this. It’s being directed by Robert Schwentke (RED) based on the screenplay by Evan Spiliotopoulos. Spiliotopoulos is currently wrapping up the Bright 2 screenplay with David Ayer and in the past few years has worked on Charlie’s AngelsThe Huntsman: Winter’s War and wdas involved in the live-action Beauty and the Beast adaptation with others.

The cast includes:

  • Henry Golding as Snake Eyes
  • Andrew Koji as Storm Shadow
  • Iko Uwais as Hard Master
  • Úrsula Corberó as Baroness
  • Samara Weaving as Scarlett
