Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians, Last Christmas) is in negotiations to star in Snake Eyes, a G.I. Joe spinoff from Paramount in partnership with Skydance and AllSpark Pictures, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The screenplay is said to follow Snake Eyes seeking revenge for his father’s death by joining ninja clan, in the process finding acceptance.

Snake Eyes is the code name of a member of the G.I. Joe Team. He is the team’s original commando, and much of his history and information, including his real name, place of birth and service number, have remained “CLASSIFIED” throughout all depictions of his origin.

Snake Eyes was living a life of strict self-denial and seclusion in the High Sierras with a pet wolf named Timber, when he was recruited for the G.I. Joe Team. He is an expert in all NATO and Warsaw Pact small arms, and a black belt in 12 different fighting systems. He is also highly skilled in the use of edged weapons, especially his Japanese sword and spike-knuckled trench knives, but is equally qualified with and willing to use firearms and explosives. Snake Eyes is quiet in his movements, and rarely relies on one set of weapons to the exclusion of others.

During one of his first missions for G.I. Joe, Snake Eyes’ face was severely disfigured in a helicopter explosion. Since then, Snake Eyes has had extensive plastic surgery to repair the damage, but his vocal cords cannot be repaired. He usually wears a black bodysuit, along with a balaclava and visor to cover his face. When out of his uniform, Snake Eyes is shown to be Caucasian with an athletic build, blonde hair, and blue eyes – Wiki
