GI Joe – the movie

After the Transformers movie there are now plans for a GI Joe film. There has been predictable outrage that this new version of the team is international in scope.

In a follow-up to their confirmation that Stephen Sommers will direct G.I. Joe, Variety offers this new description of the team: “G.I. Joe is now a Brussels-based outfit that stands for Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity, an international co-ed force of operatives who use hi-tech equipment to battle Cobra, an evil organization headed by a double-crossing Scottish arms dealer. The property is closer in tone to X-Men and James Bond than a war film.”

There are enough GIs lined up for the project that there may still be a few remaining when the film comes out and I can do “A GI reviews GI Joe”.

Lots of people have been searching for this picture recently (I can tell, they get redirected to the front page from its old location in the galleries). Mary as a maid. Rendered in Poser then messed around with in Photoshop.
