"Hey folks, Harry here... Got this emailed in by Larry Hama, mastermind behind the badass version of G.I. JOE that Stephen Sommers is translating into a huge feature film due out Summer 2009. What Larry sent over isn't a grab from the film, but the first released publicity shot of Ray Parks in the SNAKE-EYES costume. What I love about the shot is that they're trying to get across that SNAKE-EYES is a ninja with a gun. As for the character - will they get Snake-Eyes right in the film? It looks like it. The film does have the whole Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow origin - the vow of silence - and the revenge theme that was at the heart of Snake-Eyes. And frankly - I think the combination of realizing the character and its origins is why Larry is excited about this image. That... and he wants that first replica sword. "
