Just got word on the budget $170 Million!
Sweet! I hope above all things, they use actual Joe vehicles.
I just hope whatever they do it's better than that weird Action Man team up script I read a while back... man was that hideous!
Oh and let's use some actual Joes please...
Man, I really want it to be unabashed jingoistic nationalism, just 'cause it's GI Joe.
But that'll never happen. So I'll settle for a film with recognizable GI Joe elements, instead of a really expensive generic action film.
Holy poop, isnt that 20 million more then TF had?
Characters and jingoism aside, this film needs three things to succeed:
1) Stupefyingly hot babes to play Scarlett, Lady Jaye and Baroness
2) Insane vehicle combat
3) well-done ninja scenes
I'd also like to see Cobra Commander portrayed as an actual threat, and Cobra Vipers overrunning a town or city.
Looks like Sam Worthington might be cast as Duke.
As long as they don't get Dolph Lundgren for Duke. Am sick of hearing people wanting him for the role. Duke Nukem maybe.
Angelina Jolie would make a cool Baroness, since she's good at doing the accent
Steve Buschemi or AC/DC's singer for CC lol
As long as its not a water downed version it may be okay.
That is a ridiculous budget for this kind of movie. I hope it doesn't (hiss)tank. Seriously though, I'm sure it will do well.
Here's hoping for a good story line and some cool recognizable elements from the 80's series/toyline.
I want to see some Vipers damnit!
I look forward to seeing the movie tie-in merch for that one! I will have to make my way over to hisstank more often.
they need Shipwreck
Kevin Spacey. I've always thought he'd be superb as Cobra Commander.
Josh Holloway (Sawyer) from Lost would be perfect for Shipwreck IMO
I think it would be funny to see sgt slaughter be sgt slaughter
You can bet on Snake Eyes and most likely Duke being in it. Scarlet being the female favorite could be included. Stalker was an original Joe and should be on the team and Roadblock is one of the most popular characters, but I can see them only picking one of them.
Personally, as long as Flint, Lady Jaye, and Shipwreck are on the Joe team, I'll be happy.
For Cobra we need CC, Destro, Baroness, Storm Shadow and lot's of cannon fodder.
Cobra Commander should be someone like Gary Oldman, someone who can really fucking act and get into the character, though I don't know if he'd take such a part
Actually that would be insanely awesome.
Gary Oldman is my top pick as well, but Willem DeFoe would also do quite well IMO.
CHRIST! It got a bigger budget than Transformers!
