'Snake Eyes': Release date, cast, plot and everything you need to know about the 3rd G.I. Joe film
The movie is named after one of its most popular characters - Snake Eyes. Robert Schwentke will serve as the director and the movie is set for an October 2020 release.
The last two G.I. Joe movies, 'The Rise of the Cobra' and 'Retaliation', surpassed all expectations paving the way for a third installment. The Hasbro movies grossed 678.1 million around the globe and boasted some serious star power in Dwayne Johnson, Channing Tatum, Marlon Wayans, Sienna Miller, Dennis Quaid, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, and Rachel Nichols.
Adding to the ensemble cast was all the makings of a potential action blockbuster. The third G.I. Joe film was confirmed and slated for a March 2020 release, but Deadline reported there was a change in the release date as Paramount pushed the movie launch date to Fall. The working title for the third G.I. Joe movie is 'Snake Eyes' as reported by Comicbook.
Here's what we know so far about the upcoming movie.
The latest release date announced by Paramount is October 16, 2020. It was originally slated for a March 27, 2020, launch but was pushed to a Fall release for reasons unknown.
While the cast is still kept under wraps, Ray Park, who played Snake Eyes will be replaced since he is too old to be playing a younger version of the character. We'll keep you posted on the latest cast announcements.
Just like in the first movie, 'G.I.Joe: The Rise of the Cobra', Cobra Commander (Luke Bracey) manages to give the Joes the slip in the second part, 'Retaliation' as well. In all likelihood, the latest part would see a Joes v Cobra showdown and will also see Snake Eyes play a more prominent role. He was, after all, one of the most-loved characters in the two movies. Also adding to the fact that the movie's working title is named after the silent ninja, there's so much more about him we don't know and may get to see.
Robert Schwentke (‘RED’, ‘Insurgent’) serves as director, while the screenplay is from Evan Spiliotopoulos (‘Beauty and The Beast', 'Death Note 2’).
While there is no official trailer or first look for 'Snake Eyes' yet, we may see some new footage sometime around October this year. We'll keep you posted on the latest developments.
