Following in the footsteps of so many other projects, Paramount Pictures’ Snake Eyes movie has now been delayed.
Courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter, Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins has been moved from this October until a to-be-confirmed 2021 date. This isn’t the first delay for the picture, with Snake Eyes originally set for this March before being pushed to October. Now though, the ongoing pandemic has seen Paramount make the call to move the film to next year.
With Henry Golding in the title role, Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins will ignore the event of 2009’s G.I. Joe and sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Instead, we’ll see the relationship between Golding’s Snake Eyes and BFF-turned-nemesis Storm Shadow (Andrew Koji) spotlighted.
R.I.P.D.’s Robert Schwentke is on directing duties for Snake Eyes.
