    G.I. Joe Movie: Stephen Sommers Directs

    Thats right, the man behind The Mummy and Van Helsing is doing GI Joe. Of course the man behind Bad Boys 2 and Pearl Harbor did Transformers and it wasn't that bad.

    i've been following GI Joe as a movie pretty closely, and I'm at least glad they're getting a new script because one I got 2 years ago sucked so hard.

    Sweet. This is awesome. Wonder who'll play Cobra Commander? I'd like to see....Actually, I have no idea who'd make a good Commander.

    Anthony Hopkins as Destro would be awesome. But I dunno how well an old Destro would do.

    I really, really hope the old scripts arent used. (and I pray that they take action man the fuck out of it) there was at least one script that didnt have cobra at all.

    movie about american heroes at war with terrorists? it's a no-brainer in this age.

    They would just need good voice actors for Cobra Commander and Destro, since they wear masks the whole time.

    I hope snake-eyes isnt even in it. marvel really pushed me away from his character when their comic shoved the Joe logo into a corner and stuck his name in it's place. even in issues he didnt appear in.

    damn that was a long time ago. and yet, he still annoys me.

    I'm a big fan of faceplate Cobra Commander, but the hood is more realistic. Also, we're more likely to keep Destro looking right if he's the only silver mask character.

    Destro can only me Ewan McGregor.

    I thought I started a GI Joe casting thread back in the day, but I can't find it now.

    Any ideas?

    I thought the mummy guy quit because he wanted a bigger paycheck than they were offering. Also one of the scripts stank and featured action man,

    Hmm, maybe they could change the hood a little so it doesn't have eye-holes? That way, Cobra Commander keeps his infamous 'no-face' and doesn't take away from Destro.

    Y'know, I wouldn't have ever thought of Mr. McGregor as Destro but that would actually be really cool!

    Oi, what happened to Cobra Commander's Blue Ensemble?

    Stephen Sommers did good with The Mummy films (The first was the best), did okay with Van Helsing, so G.I. Joe should be fine --- assuming he still remains the director as time goes by. However, as with TF, I wonder how they're gonna pull this off given that I haven't seen anything within the realm of Joe that would work in the 'real-world' aside from the 'terriorist' group Cobra.

    I wanna see The Baroness, Snake Eyes, and Lady Jaye in this here film.

    I really hated Van Helsing but the first Mummy was ok

    Anyway though, new script will hopefully be better, the older one is definitely ass, as internet's Zac Shipley pointed out

    So Zac are you still on a "FUCK TRANSFORMERS" kick or what :p

    Right? Politics of it all aside, who wouldn't enjoy some nationalistic CGI-enhanced ass-kicking?

    EDIT: Err, maybe I should have said "Correct?"
