A Wayans GI Joe?

01.07.2008

The GI JOE movie has come under a lot of scrutiny from the fanboy community almost from the very beginning. That same scrutiny is about to get a little tighter with the addition of Marlon Wayans, who has signed on to play Ripcord. To those who bristle at the thought of having one of the stars of WHITE CHICKS in GI JOE, I'll remind you that Wayans was actually quite impressive in REQUIEM FOR A DREAM. Not that he'll be amazing in GI JOE but I suppose it's a little hope. And to give you some serious hope, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, one of the most underrated actors of his generation, is also in negotiations to join the film in an unnamed role. Actors already signed on to star in the big-budget adaptation are Rachel Nichols, Sienna Miller, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Said Taghmaoui. Stephen Sommers (VAN HELSING) is directing he film from a script by...who knows at this point. There have been so many drafts it's hard to keep track and at one point they had two competing scripts going up against each other. Stuart Beattie is the current credited writer for what it's worth. Filming is scheduled to begin shooting next month in Los Angeles.

Extra Tidbit: The GI JOE movie is set 10 years in the future.

There's no solid, legit reason to hate Marlon. he's been great and he's been terrible. depends on the material. People who come from comedy usually need a good director to draw out the right performance.

So Donnie, you were all aboard with Sienna Miller and Sommers but you see Marlon Wayans and you want to boycott?

You might want to rethink your post.

Big Matt, you should just leave the comedy to Marlon.

Ha

What's a raceist? Is it anything like a nubian?

Marlon has given good performances and bad performances, I guess we'll just have to wait and see what we get from him this time. Personally I'm more concerned about Sommers than I am about any of the cast members.

Nooooo

So, I was hoping for Transformers or Batman Begins and now I see we are getting Dungeons and Dragons. I had almost wiped that memory. Thanks a lot for the flashback.

No Boycott

Give Marlon Wayans a shoot he can act so. And Joseph Gordon-Levitt is Great loved Lookout and Brick. So GI Joe may not be great but it will be a fun popcorn movie.

Marlon Wayans is fine

Its the idea of the movie itself I object to. Wayans was excellent in Requiem for A Dream and I've got no doubt he can do a job for this kind of film, its just a shame that this stinking piece of Americana is being made at all, and then being changed to avoid the Americana that the whole franchise is about.
Pointless, much?

I guess with the current strike... Last person with a script through the door wins! lucky guy. Marlon can act, if he knows his role he will probably do just fine, no reason to hate the movie just yet... might eat your words later.
