The solo film chronicling the origins of the fan-favorite member of the elite G.I. Joe squad is coming this July. Here are all the latest updates.
The beloved 'G.I. Joe' franchise is coming back to life with a spin-off series following the origin of one of the most beloved characters of the film series.
'Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins' will chronicle the origin story of the titular character, Snake Eyes.
The spin-off film is directed by Robert Schwentke, with a screenplay written by Evan Spiliotopoulos, Joe Shrapnel, and Anna Waterhouse.
After 3 years since its announcement, 'Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins' is finally coming to theaters next month. Let us find out everything there is to know about the film, including release dates, plot, cast, trailer, and more.
'Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins' is coming to theaters on July 23, 2021. The film is distributed by Paramount Pictures.
The spin-off film was first announced in 2018. It began production on October 15, 2019, and wrapped on February 26, 2020, shortly before productions worldwide shut down due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
In March 2021, Henry Golding announced that they are doing some reshoots for the film.
However, fans shouldn't worry because the reshoots did not last very long, and now the film is all set for a July 23, 2021 release.
'Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins' will dive into the origins of the titular character long before he becomes the masked member of the elite G.I. Joe squad.
An ancient Japanese ninja clan called the Arashikage welcomes Snake Eyes after he saves the life of their heir. The Arashikage trained the lone warrior and provided him with a home and family. But when secrets from his past get revealed, his loyalties get tested, forging the path he will have to take to become the hero we know today.
Tommy, also known as the Storm Shadow, will also play a vital role in the film. Tommy is a highly skilled member of the Arashikagi clan, but their eventual rivalry will be a major storyline in 'Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins.' The film is expected to explore the fall-out of their friendship.
Snake Eyes is the most popular character of the G.I. Joe franchise, although he is not the leader of the G.I. Joe team. He is the equivalent of Wolverine in the X-Men. Albeit a solo film, 'Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins' will also serve as the reboot to the film series.
The cast of 'Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins' is led by Henry Golding as Snake Eyes. Golding is previously known for starring in 'Crazy Rich Asians.'
Andrew Koji stars as Tommy / Storm Shadow, a proficient member of the Arashikage clan and Snake Eyes' friend, who will eventually become Snake Eye's archenemy.
Iko Uwais plays Hard Master, the powerful leader of Arashikage and the uncle of Storm Shadow. He is joined by Peter Mensah as Blind Master, the blind co-leader of ninja clan.
Úrsula Corberó plays Baroness, an elite Cobra operative, second only to Cobra Commander.
Samara Weaving stars as Scarlett, a dual agent of both G.I. Joe and Clan Arashikage.
Haruka Abe plays Akiko, a trainee in the Arashikage. He is closely connected to both Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow.
Takehiro Hira stars as Kenta, a member of Cobra.
