Steven Allerick, who recently had a recurring role on the Amazon Prime original series The Expanse, has been cast as Snake Eyes' father, with the eponymous protagonist portrayed by Henry Golding. Allerick previously appeared on the popular survival horror series Fear the Walking Dead.
Principal photography on Snake Eyes began in October, with reported filming locations in Vancouver and Japan. The spinoff is expected to wrap principal photography this month to prepare for its October 2020 wide theatrical release.
Plot details on the upcoming spinoff film are currently under wraps, but the film is expected to be an origin story for the iconic G.I. Joe character, as well as chronicling his lifelong rivalry against Cobra ninja Storm Shadow.
Directed by Robert Schwentke, Snake Eyes stars Henry Golding as the eponymous G.I. Joe character. He is joined by Andre Koji as Storm Shadow, Iko Uwais as Hard Master, Úrsula Corberó as Baroness and Samara Weaving as Scarlett. It is scheduled to be released on October 16, 2020.
