Production on Henry Golding’s Snake Eyes is officially starting in Japan.
Paramount’s Snake Eyes, a G.I. Joe Spin-off centered on the titular Ninja Commando, officially started production in Vancouver last fall. Now, production on the Henry Golding film is moving to Tokyo, Japan.
Henry Golding and many members of the creative team behind Snake Eyes visited the Hie-Jinja Shrine ahead of filming. There, Henry Golding and the Snake Eyes team received a traditional blessing.

The G.I. Joe spin-off will tell the origins of Henry Golding’s Snake Eyes as he seeks revenge against the man who murdered his father and trains under a group of shadowy assassins known as the Arashikage ninja clan. Paramount Pictures and Hasbro had previously assembled a writer’s room led by Akiva Goldsman in the spring of 2016 to develop a cinematic universe based on the toyline properties Micronauts, Visionaries and M.A.S.K., as well as a reboot of the G.I. Joe franchise following 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and 2013’s G.I Joe: Retaliation, which featured Ray Park in the role of Snake Eyes.
Directed by Robert Schwentke from a script written by Evan Spiliotopoulos, Snake Eyes star Henry Golding as the titular character, Andrew Koji as Storm Shadow, Iko Uwais as Hard Master, Úrsula Corberó as Baroness, Samara Weaving as Scarlett, and Steven Allerick as Ninja Commando. Actors Haruka Abe and Takehiro Hira have also been cast in undisclosed roles.
Snakes Eyes is scheduled to be released in theaters on October 23, 2020.
