Having been pulled from its release date back in July due to the ongoing global health crisis, Paramount and Hasbro’s G.I. Joe spinoff movie Snake Eyes has now secured a new date in 2021.
The film – an origin story of the fan-favourite Joe starring Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians) as the ninja commando – was originally slated to open in cinemas in March before being pushed back to October of this year. However, it will now arrive in cinemas exactly one year later, hitting on October 22nd 2021.
Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins is being directed by Robert Schwentke (R.I.P.D.) from a script by Evan Spiliotopoulos (Beauty and the Beast) and features a cast that includes Henry Golding (Last Christmas) as Snake Eyes, Andrew Koji (Warrior) as Storm Shadow, Iko Uwais (The Raid) as Hard Master, Úrsula Corberó (Money Heist) as The Baroness, Samara Weaving (Ready or Not) as Scarlett and Haruka Abe (Ideal), Takehiro Hira (Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai), and Steven Allerick (The Expanse) in unrevealed roles.
