Thanks to Dwayne Johnson on the poster, Paramount saw in "G.I. Joe 2: The Billing "probably a sure hit, but also the second attempt to turn the toy series into a blockbuster franchise failed. Now may in the spin-off a new star ran.
After two failed attempts, from the "G.I. Joe "toy series to make a blockbuster franchise brand" Transformers ", probably followed on October 15, 2020, with" G.I. Joe 3 "a third - and sometime after that a spin-off. Instead of putting the main series on action bombast and Hollywood scrap iron Bruce Willis as well as the action megastars Dwayne Johnson and Channing Tatum (whose character left the action of the second part early on, since the actor no longer had a go) , the spin-off is to go in a new direction to convince yet a larger audience of the franchise.
The spin-off is apparently by no means a testosterone-filled slab, but rather a ninja movie. The spin-off will deal with the career of the Assassin's Snake Eyes, who mainly acts in the shadows (we reported). A cast for this one has now been found.
HENRY GOLDING AS SNAKE EYES
The agent is to be played by none other than Crazy Rich Asians shooting star Henry Golding. According to The Wrap, he is in talks with Paramount to take the lead role in the spin-off. For Golding, who will soon also star alongside Emilia Clarke ("Game Of Thrones") in the Christmas rom-com "Last Christmas", it's the first excursion into the action blockbuster tray that man, However, he has already proven in "Crazy Rich Asians" the body of an action figure.
Snake Eyes is one of the most popular characters from the "G.I. Joe "toy series and TV series. He is an agent who never takes off his mask and whose background story nobody knows in detail. That will probably change when the movie comes out. Also, that Golding will wear the entire duration of a mask, we think highly unlikely, after all, the young man is currently one of the most sought-after newcomers in Hollywood, so we can expect that the creative minds behind the spin-off a freer interpretation of the To take a figure to the canvas.
"Snake Eyes" is staged by German director Robert Schwentke, who lately received critical acclaim with the bitter, cross-border anti-war drama "Der Hauptmann". He already starred in Hollywood on the action blockbusters "R.I.P.D." and "R.E.D." as well as the Young Adult adventures of the "The Determination" series on the director's chair.
When "Snake Eyes" should appear is not yet known. You can watch the trailer for "Last Christmas" with Golding and Emilia Clarke under these lines.
