SNAKE EYES Kicks Off Production In Japan; Full Cast Confirmed & Official Logo Revealed

SNAKE EYES Kicks Off Production In Japan; Full Cast Confirmed & Official Logo Revealed

On Friday, Paramount Pictures officially announced the start of production in Japan on the upcoming G.I. Joe spinoff, Snake Eyes. The studio also revealed the entire cast and the movie's badass logo.

While principal photography for Paramount Pictures' long-awaited G.I. Joe spinoff film Snake Eyes initially got underway in Vancover last October, the team has seemingly completed that leg of the shoot and have now made their way to Japan where cameras started rolling on Friday after the primary cast and select members of the crew received a traditional blessing at Hie-Jinja Shrine in Tokyo.

Henry Golding (Last Christmas), who is headlining the spinoff as the fan-favorite commando, was present at the ceremoney alongside his kickass supporting cast of Andrew Koji (Fast & Furious 6), Haruka Abe (47 Ronin), Iko Uwais (The Raid) and Takehiro Hira (Giri/Haji).

Considering neither Samara Weaving (Ready or Not) nor Úrsula Corberó (The Secret Life of Pets), who play Scarlett and the Baroness, respectively, were in attendance, it seems likely the Japan shooting schedule will involve Snake Eyes' earliest days as he trains under Hard Master (Iko Uwais) and meets Storm Shadow (Andrew Koji). 

Director Robert Schwentke (The Captain; RED), executive producers Jeff Waxman & Erik Howsam, and stunt coordinator Kenji Tanigaki were also in attendance to receive the pre-filming blessing..
