An Aussie as GI Joe?

10.31.2007

Just a day after a rumor that George Clooney would star in GI JOE we have more potential casting news. Variety is reporting that Australian actor Sam Worthington is in talks to star in GI JOE. Paramount is currently negotiating with Fox to make sure Worthington is done shooting James Cameron's AVATAR by JOE's planned February start date. It's unclear if the Clooney rumor is old news and Worthington would instead be playing Duke but consider the Worthington news more solid than the Clooney rumor. Worthington was seen on some Australia soaps and starred in the upcoming crocodile thriller ROGUE. Stuart Beattie (another Aussie) just recently finished script revisions that combined two existing GI JOE scripts. Stephen Sommers (THE MUMMY) is set to direct for Paramount whether Clooney, Worthington or Scatman Crothers is starring.

Extra Tidbit: Worthington is set to star in LAST MAN, which is not an adaptation of Y: THE LAST MAN.

Except

There was a story on IMDb that explained how GI Joe is going multi-national:

Concerned about the current negative image of the American military in many countries, Paramount Pictures and Hasbro, the toy manufacturer, have decided that in their forthcoming film featuring comic-book patriot G.I. Joe, the character will become part of a multinational force, the London Daily Telegraph reported today (Tuesday). Even the character's name has become an acronym for Global Integrated Joint Operating

Even the character's name has become an acronym for Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity, the newspaper said. Word of the makeover is likely to anger U.S. conservatives, the Telegraph noted.

Yeah, a movie that glorifies U.S. military power (that doesn't feature giant robots) probably won't do too well overseas right now. Thank the Bush administration for that.
