News & Articles   Snake Eyes

The Wrap | “Ready or Not” actress Samara Weaving has closed a deal to play Scarlett in Paramount’s “G.I. Joe” spinoff “Snake Eyes,” Paramount announced on Monday. Japanese actor Takehiro Hira has also closed a deal to star as the main villain in the film as well.

“Crazy Rich Asians” breakout Henry Golding is set to play Snake Eyes, “Warrior” headliner Andrew Koji is playing Storm Shadow, and “Money Heist” breakout star Úrsula Corberó has closed a deal to play the Baroness.

“Snake Eyes,” the third live-action film based on the “G.I. Joe” toy line, will focus on the origins of the fan-favorite character known for his masked face, black commando uniform and ninja training. Robert Schwentke, the director of “Red” and “R.I.P.D.,” is set to direct “Snake Eyes” for Paramount and Skydance. The film will be released on Oct. 16, 2020.

“Beauty and The Beast” screenwriter Evan Spiliotopoulos wrote the screenplay, and Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and Brian Goldner are producing. Jeff Waxman is executive producing. Hasbro and Skydance are co-producing, while MGM is co-financing.

The story centers on Snake Eyes’ origins where he tries to become a member of the Arashikage Clan, a ninja clan based in Japan. According to “G.I. Joe vs. Cobra: The Essential Guide,” the Arashikage worked as shadowy assassins for generations, using deception to earn their keep as ninjas, as well as developing a reputation for being able to perform impossible tasks.

Weaving will next star in Ryan Murphy’s “Hollywood,” and her recent credits include “Ready or Not,” “Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri” and “Guns Akimbo.”

Gallery Updates   Picnic at Hanging Rock   Screencaptures

The novel Picnic at Hanging Rock is by many considered one of the best Australian novels of all time, and earlier this year, Samara could be seen in a TV mini-series based on the iconic story! She portrayed Irma Leopold in the 6 episodes long show, which was released on May 25th, 2018. The show tells the story of what happens when three schoolgirls and their governesses mysteriously disappear on Valentines Day in 1900, and stars Natalie Dormer, Lily Sullivan, Lola Bessis and Madeleine Madden alongside Samara. If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s an absolute must! Even putting my bias aside, Samara was one of the definite highlights – she really blew me away, and it’s probably her strongest performance yet.

Our gallery now has over 2,000 gorgeous HD screen captures for you of Samara as Irma. The show was visually stunning, so pretty much every screencap is like art – and Samara looked incredible in every episode! I have also updated our iconvault with some forum icons from the show, which you can find here. I’ll try to make some twitter avatars later this week, but I hope you enjoy these new additions for now!

Hester Appleyard purchases an isolated mansion out in the Australian bush to transform into a school for young ladies – a few months later, Appleyard College is a success. On Valentine’s Day, 1900, when students and staff go for a picnic to Hanging Rock, three of the school’s star students and their governess mysteriously vanish. Their disappearance leaves a devastating impact on students, staff, their enigmatic and formidable headmistress and the township at large. Theories abound, secrets are exposed and hysteria sets in, until eventually, the lives of the characters unravel.
