Joseph Gordon-Levitt is Cobra Commander In G.I.Joe
Reported by Jay Cochran - 12:23 AM 2008.01.19


Source: GIJoeClub.com

It has been confirmed that Joseph Gordon-Levitt ("3rd Rock from the Sun") will be taking on the role of Cobra Leader, Cobra Commander in the upcoming GI Joe movie from Paramount Pictures. Levitt joins a cast that so far consists of Ray Parks (Snake-Eyes), Sienna Miller (Baroness) and Rachel Nichols (Scarlett), Said Taghmaoui (Breaker), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Heavy Duty) and Marlon Waynes (Ripcord).

Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Hasbro's Brian Goldner will produce a G.I. Joe live-action movie scheduled for release in August 7, 2009. Joining the production team along with newly-named director, Stephen Sommers, and business-partner Bob Ducsay will be scribe Stuart Beattie.

UPDATE: It seems that The GIJoe Club, which had previously been said by Hasbro to be considered an official source of G.I.Joe information for them, has now removed the news about Gordin-Levitt being Cobra Commander. At this time we are unsure if the removal of this news means that the Club jumpped the gun and that Joseph-Levitt does not have the role locked up, or simply someone got upset that the news was announced early. We will be sure to update you as we learn more.

His behavior and choices that he has pushed for even give me the feeling that he believes if the fans dislike it, it will pr... read more

Looks like they pulled their Cobra Commander news. Hmmm did they jump the gun or has their been a casting change due to negative feedback on this announcements?
