Paramount Pictures and director Stephen Sommers have revealed the first official look at actor Ray Park ( X-Men) as character Snake Eyes for their upcoming adaptation of G.I Joe. Park will be starring alongside Dennis Quaid, Channing Tatum, Sienna Miller, Rachel Nichols, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Said Taghmaoui, Marlon Wayans, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Arnold Vosloo and Christopher Eccleston. Scribe Stuart Beattie penned the screenplay of the 80's Marvel comic series.
Director Sommers also talked about the character with USA Today.
Sommers stressed that the movie is an origins story, so his challenge is to explain why the bad guy wears a metal mask, why Snake Eyes doesn't talk and other strange things kids took for granted. "For people who know nothing about it, it'll make sense," Sommers said. "And to people who love this stuff, it'll show where they all came from."
