Up and comer Samara Weaving (hot off of her performance in Ready or Not) will have a role in the G.I. Joe spin-off Snake Eyes. She’ll be joining a cast that includes Henry Golding, Haruka Abe, Ursula Corbero, Iko Uwais, and Andrew Koji. Director Robert Schwentke will be helming the project with Brian Goldner serving as producer.
Her exact role is still being kept under wraps, but she definitely has some action chops. Ready or Not, despite being a black comedy horror film, had quite a bit of action in it. I also found Weaving to be the best part of the endeavor, subverting damsel in distress tropes in glorious fashion. She sounds like a solid pick for this latest G.I. Joe film, which I still can’t believe is getting made.
