Robert Schwentke, the Divergent film maker who directed two installments of the Divergent sci-fi action movie series, has been tapped to direct Paramount’s G.I. Joe spin-off movie centering on the popular character, Snake Eyes.
The character, who dresses in all black, never reveals his face and never speaks, stood out among the military anti-terrorist group and quickly established himself as the most popular. He had a special relationship with Scarlett, for a while the team’s only female member, and sometimes carried out solo missions with his pet wolf, Timber. His sworn enemy is Storm Shadow, a ninja who is also his blood brother.
I for one have my fingers crossed that this movie is a home run. Hopefully it’ll invigorate the brand and breathe new life in to our favorite modern army action figure.
Will you be checking out the Snake Eyes movie if/when it’s released?
