Maybe I'm a sucka for crazy 80's Hollywood remake.

Duke / Cover Girl / Ripcord / General Hawk


UPDATE: ...if you've been pursuing my my reader/user-friendly sites today, you might've noticed that I've each got exclusive images of characters from Stephen Sommers's currently-in-production G.I. Joe movie --- which is being updated from time to time. Well, we're lucky enough to be in the loop again. Here's Marlon Wayans as Ripcord!

A crop of new photos from the upcoming live-action G.I JOE flick. Most of which appear to be different from those that leaked online not long ago. This seems to be a pretty practical and easy film to market. There's dozens of characters to eventually show up and so they may as well unveil them a little at a time, I guess. Hype is building about the whole special-ops super soldiers, but what can one do: There's a lot of interesting bits in this thing. Trust me. After this, check out more on this covert patriots, as well as a little bit of info via our good friend Mr. Wiki.

Christopher Eccleston as Destro. Destro's key characteristics are his dry sense of honor, a calm demeanor and love for Cobra's second-in-command, The Baroness. As a businessman, Destro is very much a cut-throat and unyielding. He uses his own troops, The Iron Grenadiers and hires mercenaries to stir up conflict in dangerous regions, then sells weapons to those armies. Continuing a tradition started by the first masked Destro, he will even sell to both sides of the same war (...tapi apa pasal lu tanggal topeng besi lu, dud?! ADUSSS!!)

Sienna Miller as The Baroness. Baroness serves as the COBRA Organization's intelligence officer and lieutenant to Cobra Commander. With long black hair, black rimmed glasses and a black leather outfit, Baroness is a dark, sensual femme fatale whose beauty is matched only by her ruthlessness. In both comic and cartoon incarnations, she has romantic relationships with Destro.

Channing Tatum as Duke. It’ll give you an idea of what he was looking at as I toured online (rabidly!) : the G.I. Joe submarine, the Docking Bay, Destro’s MARS headquarters, an ice glacier set that looked like it belonged on the planet Hoth (Star Wars, guys), the evil doctor’s lab, and The Pit itself. Also, be sure to take note of that scar on Tatum’s right cheek: it's origin is a major plot point in the film.

Dennis Quaid as General Hawk. He is the commander of the G.I. Joe Team. Comes from a wealthy family whose influence enabled him to enroll in West Point where he graduated at the top of his class. He was even able to gain experience in the battlefield in several trouble spots. One description of him is that he is "keenly intelligent and perceptive and quite capable of totally selfless acts in support of his team-mates. An excellent leader!"

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Heavy Duty, who serves as the G.I. Joe Team's heavy ordnance specialist with a passion for classical guitars and Bach. He is described as being unafraid of any situation despite heavy enemy fire. LOST fans will recognise him easily.

Said Taghmaoui as Breaker. Breaker's primary military specialty is Infantry. His specialized education includes Signal School, where he studied covert electronics and was involved with "Project Gamma". He is a qualified expert in the M-16, M-1911A1, and MAC-10 (Ingram). He also speaks seven languages.

Byung-Hun Lee as Storm Shadow. Best known as the Cobra Commander's ninja bodyguard and assassin at times, he is the only member of the team to change sides several times, conflicted in loyalties between Cobra / G.I. Joe and his long relationship with his prominent swordbrother: Snake-Eyes. He usually wears a white uniform and mask.

G.I. JOE is due out in theaters on August 7, 2009.
