There has been some exciting news coming out of this week’s Cinema EXPO International 2008 taking place in Amsterdam concerning the live action G.I. Joe movie. Not only do we now know the movie’s subtitle, Rise of Cobra, but Film1 has scored some excellent photos of the 2009 movie’s soon to be released teaser character movie posters featuring Channing Tatum as Duke, Ray Park as Snake Eyes and Sienna Miller as the Baroness and Marlon Wayans as Ripcord.
Your eyes do not deceive you, these posters are following in the same tradition as The Spirit character movie posters in that they are black and white with one item highlighted in red. Hopefully more details and/or posters of G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra will be leaking out of Amsterdam soon.
The G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra live action movie will debut in theaters sometime during August, 2009. It stars Dennis Quaid as General Hawk, Channing Tatum as Duke, Marlon Wayans as Ripcord, Rachel Nichols as Scarlett, Ray Park as Snake Eyes, Sienna Miller as The Baroness, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Cobra Commander, Said Taghmaoui as Breaker, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Heavy Duty, Byung-hun Lee as Storm Shadow and Christopher Eccleston as Destro.
