    It needs a lot of work; continuity errors all over the place. However, the dialogue is pretty much spot-on - VERY Hama-esque. And Duke is the mofo'ing MAN.
    I'd definitely pay to watch it.



    ...



    As long as they cut out Snake-Eyes's line.

    I just hope if they do make a live action Joe movie it doesn't end like the Street Fighter movie was. The whole Rex/Cobra Commander thing is kinda cheesy too.

    Wow! The "American" hero in the big screen? I didn't see that coming.
    First TF, now Gi Joe, what's next? Thundercats? Actually that will be awesome.

    Fix the afore mentioned errors that Draven mentioned and I would have them make Snake Eyes Mute like he has always been.

    Hopefully in the same circle of Hell for horrible plot ideas as "The girl who loved Powerglide".

    I'm not too sure about Rex/Cobra being Cobra Commander; the whole point about CC is that he was a normal guy. he didn't have any super powers, and he wasn't unkillable. He was just a regular guy, who was pushed too far by the system.

    That's how I prefer CC as well, However I think they needed their own "Magneto" for this film series.

    Well, I suppose a super powered CC is still better than Serpentor.

    We discussed this at joebattlelines, and while I grant that a movie series must establish its own continuity, this just seemed like a total misfire to me. Were the TF film to have this script, you know we'd all be apeshit.

    Going to read it tomorrow, but what's the status of the movie as of now? Haven't heard anything about it for awhile now.

    highly doubtful. I doubt it'll even see pre-production until the TF Movie is released. They'll more than likely use that to gauge the worth of actually producing the movie.

    Read up to page 55, and I am not really liking it. It seems more like the script of a lowbudget movie in the style of Street Fighter then a bigbudget summer blockbuster.

    Gotta say that I like the basic idea behind Scarlett and Snake-Eye's relationship problems, but it isn't fleshed out enough (Scarlett's lines make her sound like a nagging blonde)

    Chances are this isn't legit...

    The two writers are listed as both having worked on 'Four Brothers' (which wasn't bad, btw).

    However, if this project had any interest from a major studio, which I'm sure I would've heard about if it did, you sure as hell would NOT find a first draft on the net.

    NO WAY. These guys probably threw it together because a) Some producer thought a rough script would help him secure the rights b) The guys wrote it, hoping to pitch it as a pic they could develop or c) They were bored fans.

    You've also gotta think, whenever a director is attached to a major adaptation like this, he usually brings in writers hes worked with in the past to do extensive rewrites, etc., like what is going on with TF.

    I wouldn't get worried about this...
