New casting announcements were recently revealed for the forthcoming live action GI Joe movie. Joseph Gordon Levitt and Marlon Wayans were both announced as the newest members of the cast. Wayans will play the role of Ripcord while Levitt’s role has yet to be announced. The two actors will be joining previously announced cast members like Sienna Miller who will play The Baroness, and Ray Park, who is set to play Snake Eyes.
The tentative opening date for the movie is on August 2009. I am not really that excited about a GI Joe movie. But I just hope they do not make this into an adaptation that’s as bad as the first Street Fighter movie. Yes, you read right, “First”. A new Streetfighter movie is also in the works. Rumors are that Jessica Biel will play the role of Chun Li — even though she is most definitely not Asian.
