    Thanks for the info In_Flames ... I'm hoping that they do this one right, like they did with Bay's Transformers. Cast looks good, I'm especially excited about the Storm Shadow / Snake Eyes casting ...

    First it was Snake Eyes, and now the second character from Paramount Pictures' G.I. Joe has been revealed. JoBlo has your first look at Rachel Nichols (P2, "Alias") as Shana "Scarlett" O'Hara in the Stephen Sommers-directed flick, coming to theaters on August 7, 2009. You can check out the full photo by clicking on her below!

    big interview with producer...

    http://www.collider.com/entertainment/interviews/article.asp/aid/7740/tcid/1


    Collider: So for fans of Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes which go back a long, long time, what can they look forward to about their involvement in the film and have you already filmed a battle with them and how did it turn out?


    Lorenzo: We’re really exploring the mythology and we hope that the mythology, if we’re lucky enough to get to a 2nd film, we want to continue to explore the mythology of the two characters. It’s very rich and this movie explores a lot about how they met at first and how they fell apart. And yes we have shot a fight between the 2 of them and we hope that everybody’s going to agree with us that it’s going to be one of those great battles.


    Collider: And I know “G.I. Joe” is famous for having The Pit. How was it working in that…did you guys build The Pit in like a full-size kind of thing? I’m just curious what you did.



    Lorenzo: We built a couple of the levels of The Pit as Stephen has imagined it and Ed Verreaux, our designer, is really gigantic so you couldn’t really build all of it, but so some of it. But we built a full floor of it which is gigantic. I think everybody’s going to be really happy that we took The Pit very seriously and built it to fulfill anybody’s sense of fantasy of what it could be.

    The mask is part of Destro's family history and has been passed down for generations. He'll be wearing it in the movie once he's forced to side with Cobra Commander. And it's a Steele mask, not gold.

    Loving the design of Baroness ... She was always one of my favorites.

    I like the contrast in color and texture between Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow as well. I'm hoping that these two are a central focus of the movie, as they were my two favorites. There's just something badass about using swords when everyone else is shooting guns.

    I think they just went all wrong with the focus. First of all, making them into some sort of half-***ed UNCLE instead of keeping them "a real American hero" bastardizes the whole concept from the get-go. Second, the outfits make them look like wannabe superheroes.
    I think the best idea would have been to lift that team of SF guys from Transformers...you had a read-made GI Joe team right there! :D

    Only thing I don't like so far about this movie is Marlon Wayans casting. I just don't think its possible to take him seriously.

    Otherwise this is one of my most anticipated movies.
