That's right, Joe fans, the "Real American Hero" is coming to the big screen next year in a live-action adaptation entitled G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.
Stephen Sommers (of "The Mummy" and "Van Helsing" fame) directs. Dennis Quaid will play General Hawk, Christopher Eccleston will play Destro, Arnold Vosloo will play Zartan, and Brendan Fraser will play...Gung Ho? Other than a cameo by Jonathan Pryce, all the other characters will be played by young and relatively unknown (to me, anyway) actors. So, yeah, there's a good chance this movie will suck, but I'm going to watch it anyway.
But we all know who we're really waiting for in this movie: Snake Eyes, to be played by Ray Park (Darth Maul in "Star Wars Episode 1.") More pictures after the jump, including a very bad-*ss Snake Eyes.
More on the movie from the MTV Films web site, from where these photos were taken.
