It was revealed yesterday by Paramount Pictures that they have delayed the release for their G.I. Joe spinoff origin film Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins an entire year, moving it from October 23rd to October 22nd, 2021.
This is a direct result of the Coronavirus pandemic and Paramount is likely looking closely at how poorly New Mutants is doing this weekend giving them cold feet to sticking to that original October release date.
Snake Eyes is an origin film that will explore the connection between the silent G.I. Joe member played by Henry Golding and his villainous rival Storm Shadow played by Andrew Koji along with the Shadow’s push towards the terrorist organization Cobra.
The prequel was shot in Vancouver and Japan by director Robert Schwentke from a script penned by Evan Spiliotopoulos.
Here is the rundown of the film’s cast.
- Henry Golding as Snake Eyes
- Andrew Koji as Storm Shadow
- Úrsula Corberó as The Baroness
- Iko Uwais as Hard Master
- Peter Mensah as Blind Master
- Samara Weaving as Scarlett
- Steven Allerick
- Takehiro Hira
- Haruka Abe
A third G.I. Joe film is also said to be in the works that could see the character Chuckles take the lead role. However, this project has been in the works for ages and still hasn’t come together.
