Back in August, HN Entertainment exclusively reported that G.I. Joe villain The Baroness would be appearing in the G.I. Joe prequel/spinoff Snake Eyes starring Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians, Last Christmas) and would be a reboot of the character.
HN Entertainment has been able to exclusively reveal that the Paramount Pictures film Snake Eyes, a spinoff of their Hasbro franchise G.I. Joe will be rebooting the classic franchise villain Baroness for the solo movie and is currently casting the part.
This scoop has now been confirmed by TheWrap as they have revealed that actress Ursula Corbero has landed the part.
“Money Heist” breakout star Úrsula Corberó has closed a deal to play the Baroness in Paramount’s “G.I. Joe” spinoff “Snake Eyes,” an individual with knowledge of the deal exclusively told TheWrap.
Sienna Miller had previously played the Cobra operative role in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.
She’ll be joining a cast that includes Golding as Snake Eyes, Iko Uwais (The Raid, Stuber) as Hard Master, and Andrew Koji (Warrior) as Storm Shadow.
The film is expected to explore the origin of the silent Joe ninja Snake Eyes (Golding) and his falling out with his blood-brother Storm Shadow (Koji).
Snake Eyes will begin filming next month in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada with a release date from Paramount Pictures set for October 16th, 2020.
