G.I. Joe's Storm Shadow and Scarlett Chosen?

If knowing is half the battle, then knowing the rumor is...one-fourth the battle?

We already know Ray Park and Sienna Miller are part of Stephen SommersG.I. Joe cast. How about a little old-fashioned rumormongering about a pair of potential additions?

Latino Review claims that “proven sources” have fed them the inside scoop on two of the faces we can expect to see alongside Miller and Park when Joe hits the screen — and who they’ll be playing.

According to the report, Storm Shadow — the Cobra equivalent of Joe’s resident ninja, Snake Eyes — will be played by Korean film sensation Byung-Hun Lee, star of Winter Sonata and Capcom’s Lost Planet game. Storm Shadow’s bio, courtesy of Latino Review:

Storm Shadow’s real name is Thomas S. Arashikage. 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 swordbrother Snake Eyes.

He usually wears a white uniform and mask. When out of his uniform, he is shown to be Japanese, with black hair and dark eyes. In 2007, the character’s creator Larry Hama revealed an alternate name for the character, Tomisaburo Arashikage, in the solo series Storm Shadow. Although Tomisaburo is a single Japanese name, it may stand in for his middle initial in: Tommy/Thomas S Arashikage.

Latino Review‘s sources also say that Rachel Nichols, the Alias and P2 star recently rumored to be joining the cast of Star Trek XI, has also signed up for Joe duty — and that she’ll be playing Shana “Scarlett” O’Hara, the Joe crew’s red-haired Master Sergeant.


Nothing wrong with running this picture one more time.

More on the character:

She was the first female action figure in the G.I. Joe toy line and is also the only member of the original team to see much action in both cartoon and comic incarnations. The official line on Scarlett is that her full name is Shana M. O’Hara. She was born in Atlanta, Georgia. Although she is as adept with standard weapons as any of her comrades, her weapon of choice is the crossbow, which fires various bolts with specialized functions. Her rank is Master Sergeant, and she serves from time to time as team leader. Her primary specialty for the team is counter intelligence and is additionally skilled in martial arts and acrobatics.

So there you have it, Joe fans. If you still have your old action figures, you can remove them from their protective casings, hold them up against pictures of Lee and Nichols, and decide how you feel about all this. We’re still waiting for Mike Myers or Billy Connolly to get the call for Destro. (Just kidding! We think.)
