Ray Park Confirms He’s Back as Snake Eyes in G.I. Joe 2


Good news, fans of Ray Park, aka everyone’s favorite Sith assassin. The actor, who was recently in the WB’s “Nikita” playing a badass Guardian, has confirmed via Twitter that he’s returning as Snake Eyes in “G.I. Joe 2″, which will be directed by “Step Up” guy Jon Chu in his first, well, non-dancing “battling” movie. Chu has already made it public that he wants to make a “tougher” G.I. Joe movie.

Tweets the Parkster:

Good news all! As u might have guessed, I’m coming back to play Snake Eyes for the sequel of G.I JOE, directed by Jon Chu;)

Previous news on the “Joe 2″ front also had Lee Byung-Hun officially back as Storm Shadow, while Rachel Nichols (Scarlett) recently Tweeted that the only characters coming back for part 2 would be Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow, and Duke.

Paramount appears to still be pretty bullish on the franchise, and has already set a late 2012 release date. Despite middling to terrible reviews, “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” (directed by Stephen Sommers) made $150 million domestically and $302 million worldwide from an estimated $175 million dollar budget. The film has also cleared about $70 million in DVD and Blu-ray sales.

      Hell, make Adkins Serpentor or the performance double of a nano-enhanced Storm Shadow, and you got good times right there

    I like Ray Park a whole lot. He’s always a bad-ass (regardless of his short stature), and Snake Eyes was one of the coolest characters in Joe.

    I wish him to be cast in a movie where he actually gets to act and talk though. We all know he’s a skilled martial artist, but I would like him to flesh out a charcater first.

    He would be a great Ray Palmer (The Atom) or a cool Vic Sage (The Question), however, and being a bit more optimistical, I would L-O-V-E to see him as Slade Wilson (DEATHSTROKE).

    Although in the comics Slade is tall, I think is more important for him to be smart and capable of kicking super-hero ass, not like that retired older guy they put in Smallville.
