Snake Eyes is the ninja commando known for his deadly ability with a sword and trench knives. However, he knows also martial arts and can be just as dangerous unarmed. Snake-Eyes was living in solitude in the High Sierras when he was recruited to join G.I. Joe. His real name and backstory have long been sources of mystery. He brings the scars on his body after a helicopter explosion, in addition to being mute. To hide his face, he usually appears in a black balaclava and matching bodysuit.

The film stars Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians) as the titular ninja assassin. The rest of the cast sees Andrew Koji (Warrior) as Storm Shadow, Iko Uwais (The Raid, Stuber) as Hard Master, Samara Weaving (Ready or Not) as Scarlett, Úrsula Corberó (Money Heist) as Baroness, Haruka Abe as Akiko, as well as Takehiro Hira as Kenta and Steven Allerick (The Expanse) as the father of Snake Eyes.

Robert Schwentke (REDR.I.P.D.) is directing the spinoff from a screenplay by Evan Spiliotopoulous (Bright 2The Huntsman: Winter’s War) with Jeff Waxman, Erik Howsam, David Ellison, as well as Dana Goldberg, Don Granger serving as executive producers. Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Brian Goldner are producing this movie.
