It has been a roller-coaster ride. Various script ideas, cast changes, crew changes, director changes, delays, contingencies and many more. But finally, finally a 3rd G.I. Joe live action movie is being made and the filming starts today.
Directed by Robert Schwentke, G.I. Joe: Snake Eyes principal photography is set to take place from mid-October to early-December in Vancouver, Canada. Starring popular heartthrob Henry Golding as the titular character, the story for this new movie is written by Evan Spiliotopoulos with Bruce Lee films in mind.
The plot is rumored to be as follows (Warning: Possible Spoilers):
“When we meet this new, younger Snake Eyes, it’ll be as a street fighter in Peru. Driven by the desire to avenge the death of his father, Snake Eyes is apparently a man on the move until he ends up in Japan, where he and his best friend, Tommy, aka Storm Shadow, will begin their training with the Arashikage Clan. The film will see at least 3 of the clan’s legendary masters as they train Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow as Hard Master, Soft Master and Blind Master are all set to appear. Also present at the Arashikage compound is the film’s female lead, Akita. In comic continuity, Junko Akita was an apprentice and lover of Storm Shadow; here she is the head of security and will be a love interest for Snake Eyes.”
“Of course if it’s a GI Joe movie, Cobra must somehow be present and in this instance their presence is made manifest in what appears to be a character created for the film: Kenta. Kenta is revealed to Storm Shadow’s brother who has long since left his family, the Arashikage, and joined with a rival ninja clan, the Kurayami. It is Kenta who attempts to lure Snake Eyes away from the Arashikage and into a terrorist plot being devised by Cobra. We won’t delve too deeply into spoiler territory here, but we can see what side of things Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow will take and this film certainly seems to set the stage for one of the great comic book rivalries.”
Joining hands with Mr. Golding are Andrew Koji (Storm Shadow), Iko Uwais (Hard Master), Ursula Corbero (The Baroness), Samara Weaving (Scarlett), Takehiro Hira (Kenta?), and Haruka Abe (Junko Akita?).
Hasbro, Skydance and MGM will co-produce the movie, along with Paramount Pictures and Grackle Bird Productions.
As stated above, filming of G.I. Joe: Snake Eyes (under the working title ‘Grackle Bird’) will take place from October 15th to December 6th for an October 16th, 2020 release.
Breaking news out of Hollywood today, Ursula Corbero has been cast to play the Baroness in the upcoming live action G.I. Joe Snake Eyes movie. Ursula Corbero is best known to people in the USA from the Netflix series Money Heist.
Check out some images of Ursula Corbero the future Baroness after the jump.
HN Entertainment is exclusively reporting that The Baroness will make an appearance on the upcoming G.I. Joe: Snake Eyes live action movie.
Auditions are said to be taking place with participation from known and unknown actresses in the movie business.
The story is said to be a reboot to the G.I. Joe movie franchise very much like Transformers: Bumblebee.
The site states that the fans will hear about more characters in the coming weeks.
Sideshow and Pop Culture Shock Collectibles present the Baroness 1:4 Scale Statue, fighting for Cobra against your brigade of G.I. Joe collectibles.
The Baroness Statue measures 22” tall as the ruthless lieutenant straddles the turret cannon of the Moray while it sinks beneath the water. Blue translucent waves churn against the red hydrofoil as Baroness stands her ground, waiting for extraction from the battle against G.I. Joe.
The Baroness features an entirely sculpted costume inspired by her classic animated appearance. Her sleek black catsuit, boots, and grey gloves have dynamic textures that mimic the movement of real fabric, along with grey piping accents for detail. Her determined portrait includes her famous black-rimmed glasses, while red lipstick and the Cobra logo on her chest add a pop of color to her dark look. The Baroness is armed with a pistol and rifle, making this femme fatale a dangerous beauty to behold.
The Exclusive Edition of the Baroness 1:4 Scale Statue includes an alternate smirking portrait with dramatic, windswept hair. Give the Baroness some added attitude with this exclusive display option.

It’s been a few days, but legendary GI Joe artist Russ Heath has passed away. If you’re not immediately familiar with his name, you’ll certainly be familiar with his work, he was responsible for the basic look and feel for the Sunbow GI Joe characters, locations, animals, vehicles and storyboards. He penciled Marvel’s GI Joe issue #24 and inked issue #64. He also did a lot of work on titles like the Punisher and Punisher War Journal, etc…
