I grew up with the animated series "G.I. Joe". Owned most of the toys, comics...I went nuts over it. With it's HUGE cast of characters, vehicle/weapons, etc etc....this has a huge potential for BLOCKBUSTER! Releasing a live action flick while relaunching the action figures and cartoons + a whole wad of merchandising....money money money to be made. Why hasn't it been done yet? Especially in light of recent world events, a patriotic movie about an elite anti-terrorism fighting force would jack everybody up! I always liked thinking of a trilogy. First film sets everything up and introduces a select number of characters from the Joes and Cobra. At the end of #1, hint at the creation of Serpentor. Part 2 focuses on his creation while bringing forward other Joe members to the main storyline. Part 3 is the final worldwide battle. Casting would be an all-star line up. Cast takes a pay cut in favor of backend deals, merchandising profits, etc. G.I. Joe; General Hawk - Ed Harris Duke - Kurt Russell Flint - George Clooney Lt. Falcon - Mark Wahlberg Lady Jaye - Demi Moore Scarlet - Julianne Moore Snake eyes - Ray Park Roadblock - Ving Rhames Shipwreck - Bruce Willis Sgt. Slaughter - an unknown, perhaps a pro wrestler? (no, not the real Sgt. Slaughter, he's far too old now.) Cobra; Cobra Commander - Tim Roth Destro - Michael Dorn (Worf from "star trek") Baroness - Angelina Jolie Zartan - Michael Wincott Zamot and Tomax (not sure if the spelling is right on their names...the twins who often finished each other's sentences) - Pierce Brosnan in a dual role Serpentor - some unknown actor who's over the top. Stormshadow -Jet Li Dr. Mindbender - Patrick Stewart Imagine Snake-eyes vs. Stormshadow! Ray Park against Jet Li??? Awesome stuff! and yes I've been thinking about this for a while now.
