/Film is reporting that Ray Park (Darth Maul from Star Wars Episode 1) has been cast as Snake Eyes in the Stephen Sommer’s live-action adaptation of G.I. Joe.
For those unaware of where the character of Snake Eyes fits in, he was an original member in the GI Joe series.
From the site:
Not much is known about the ninja master’s real identity, as it has remained classified throughout the series. The U.S. Army Sergeant First Class (E-7) is known for his stealth like movements and extensive knowledge of multiple forms of martial arts. Snake-Eyes is romantically involved with fellow G.I. Joe member Master Sergeant Shana M. O’Hara, a.k.a. Scarlett.
G.I. Joe hits theaters on August 7, 2009.
