Golding also revealed to Entertainment Weekly what he wants to do with this iconic pop culture character:
“I wanted to see something different, and I wanted it to look different, feel different,” Golding tells EW. “For us to start a franchise like this, it was way too good to be true – and especially with a snake like Snake Eyes that a lot of people don’t know too much about. They know him as a crazy operator who performs missions and is an absolute weapon, but who’s behind the cover and what is his story? “

“After getting this solo film, we can set a precedent for what [Snake’s] the story leads, ”adds Golding. “It’s phenomenal that Paramount and Hasbro decided to go to the very beginning and really start with a story like this. It gives so much more creative control over where this universe is going. I’m crazy excited about what we’re going to do next.”
Snake Eyes: GI Joe Origins will premiere in theaters on July 23, 2021.
