Two new bits of GI Joe Casting have just hit the interwebs before the upcoming Holiday week.
IESB is reporting that Korean star Byung-hun Lee has been cast as Storm Shadow (aka Tommy S. Arashikage), Snake-Eye’s (Ray Park) brother and rival. He is the only member of the GI Joe team to switch sides several times.
LatinoReview is reporting that Rachel Nichols (Charlie Wilson’s War, Alias) has been cast as Scarlett O’Hara. Ranked Master Sergeant, red-headed Scarlett is the first female character in the GI Joe action figure line. Her weapon of choice is the crossbow, and her specialty is counter intelligence.
G.I. Joe is scheduled to hit theaters on August 7th 2009.
