GI Joe news

A bunch of GI JOE nuggets have popped up over at Access Hollywood. First up, director Stephen Sommers (VAN HELSING) on Snake Eyes: "He's the world's greatest ninja, but he's also next-generation. He's not afraid to use a sword one second, and a split-second later he's pulling out his Glock." Of course, we all saw THOSE pictures and splooged ourselves. If Sommers' films deliver one thing, it's visuals.

Next up, Sienna Miller: "[The film] requires a lot of physical training... I have a black wig, guns, and leather… it's all very fantastic!" Black wig? Thankfully, I'd like to think that means the pictures we were sent EARLIER were not her in character then. Or maybe she's in disguise? She did that didn't she? Like she would wear a wig and then magically look like a completely different person? Isn't that how Cobra got the BET in the animated movie?

What worries me about the thing, though, is this: "The film is reportedly an origins story. It could explain why Destro has a chromed head and why Snake Eyes doesn't speak, among other outlandish details of "G.I. Joe" that the cartoon never explained. "For people who know nothing about it, it'll make sense... And to people who love this stuff, it'll show where they all came from."

Am I alone in thinking that I don't want Skip Woods and Stuart Beattie to try and explain decades of GI JOE mythology?
Extra Tidbit: The next cartoon I want to see adapted is Centurions.
