Henry Golding Will Star in the 'G.I. Joe' Spinoff 'Snake Eyes'

Evan Spiliotopoulos, who wrote "Beauty and the Beast" and "The Huntsman: Winter's War", penned the script. Joe movies, Snake Eyes' face was never seen, he never spoke, and he was played by stuntman Ray Park, so he could do cool flips and stuff. Joe, I have no qualms about the Snake Eyes movie bucking tradition and letting the character talk. Given Golding's blinding handsomeness and ongoing popularity, we have to assume they're gonna let him take off the mask from time to time. Snake Eyes, an upcoming spin-off for Paramount and Hasbro's G.I. movie franchise, EW has learned.

Snake-Eyes was originally created by writer/editor Larry Hama for Marvel Comics' G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and 2013's G.I Joe: Retaliation - you'd think producers would stop and say: "Okay, G.I". Maybe can be the guy who turns G.I.

Golding made his feature debut in Crazy Rich Asians, and his star has been rising ever since. The latter is now working on the script, rumored to focus on Snake Eyes seeking revenge for his father's death by joining a ninja clan. Which will likely upset the hardcore G.I.

Golding is best known for playing Nick Young in the film Crazy Rich Asians, and also hosts the long-running BBC series The Travel Show.

Golding has since appeared in director Paul Feig's crime comedy A Simple Favor opposite Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively, and this year's Monsoon, a romantic drama from writer/director Hong Khaou.

Snake Eyes now has a October 16, 2020 release date - but that could always change.
