    With Sienna Miller playing Baronness.

    Niiiice.

    From Variety... Their info about the film is a little old (It's at the Pit), but the casting news is new...

    "Sienna Miller is the first thesp to enlist in Paramount Pictures' big-budget tentpole "G.I. Joe."
    British actress will play the film's female lead, described as a raven-haired baroness and sexy femme fatale skilled in espionage.

    Stephen Sommers directs the live-action film based on the Hasbro toys, comicbook and TV series.

    Paramount, which has set a mid-February start date, has slotted the film for an Aug. 7, 2009, release.

    Story is set at Brussels-based GIJOE, an acronym for the Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity, and revolves around an international co-ed force of operatives who use high-tech equipment to battle Cobra, an evil org headed by a Scottish arms dealer.

    Lorenzo di Bonaventura ("Transformers") is producing alongside Hasbro's Brian Goldner.

    Miller, whose credits include Paramount and di Bonaventura's "Stardust," recently wrapped "Hippie Hippie Shake," "The Edge of Love" and "The Mysteries of Pittsburgh."

    Hope she has the accent too. So there's no Cobra Commander in this? Cobra is led by Destro or what?

    She did all right as the golddigger in Stardust. She'll be fine as the Baroness.

    Brussels based? Oh dear, at least they could have set it up in the western hemisphere. Look I'm not even American but GI JOE is the Real American Hero, why alter it from that? It could still be a global task force and be based in New York. Some American film makers are way to caught up in politics.............

    I agree, I'm not a typical 'WTF killing my childhood Mother-fers....' person, but with the types of changes that they are talking about may make it difficult to resemble anything that made gijoe what it is today.

    I thought the changes to Transformers was wild, they are nothing compared to G.I. Joe. This movie is gonna be one hell of a train wreck.

    Hopefully they cast Danny Trejo as....well....somebody. Just give him some knives and a machette. Maybe he could help Mary-Kate and Ashley with their acting :D  Really I love Danny Trejo, why the hell does only Rodriguez use him?

    I actually think the above pic is horrible. I'm glad I googled her before seeing it. she actually does look good, in more of a cute way than anything else.
