    Miller

    Sienna Miller is the first thesp to enlist in Paramount Pictures' big-budget tentpole "G.I. Joe."
    British actress will play the film's female lead, described as a raven-haired baroness and sexy femme fatale skilled in espionage.
    Stephen Sommers directs the live-action film based on the Hasbro toys, comicbook and TV series.
    Paramount, which has set a mid-February start date, has slotted the film for an Aug. 7, 2009, release.
    Story is set at Brussels-based GIJOE, an acronym for the Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity, and revolves around an international co-ed force of operatives who use high-tech equipment to battle Cobra, an evil org headed by a Scottish arms dealer.
    Lorenzo di Bonaventura ("Transformers") is producing alongside Hasbro's Brian Goldner. Miller, whose credits include Paramount and di Bonaventura's "Stardust," recently wrapped "Hippie Hippie Shake," "The Edge of Love" and "The Mysteries of Pittsburgh."

    They had better dye that hair or get her fitted for a decent wig. I don't see the Baroness at all here. I also know nothing of her. What nationality is she? I can't imagine the Baroness with anything but the accent she had in the cartoon, or at the very least a British accent.

    And I sincerely hope that Variety is behind on their plot synopsis. Otherwise someone at Hasbro and Paramount is full of it (given who's producing, this would not surprise me).

    If you didn't know this movie was going to be crap..here is your first idea. Hopefully she gets canned or quits and we get a real Baroness.
     
  8. Excuse me, Paramount Pictures -=taps shoulder=-
    Its the "Real American Hero", not the Real Belgian Hero.

    I certainly do hope the information on that is seriously out-dated(and completely wrong).

    Sienna Miller as Baroness?

    Meh. Could have done worse I suppose. But coming from a guy who grew up liking the character from both the comics, and animated series, this is a bit disappointing. Much like alot of other stuff I've read regarding this film.

    I've got no problem with Sienna. She's really not that bad of an actress at all.

    I thought that whole Brussels thing had already been debunked.

    I'm still excited for this movie. I hope they get Sam Worthington as either Duke or Flint. He's fantastic.

    When I saw her picture, she screams more of Scarlett than Baroness.

    I also would rather have Sienna Miller as Scarlett. Milla Jovovich should be The Baroness. I believe the character The Baroness is Russian in the comics as well as the cartoon. I think August is a good time to release the film but, I would release it July 4th and it would be called G.I. Joe A Real American Hero.

    They will never call it "A real American hero" not in the current climate.

    I also always had the inclination that the Baroness was Russian. But guys, she is an actress..she can fake an accent. Just because she is English doesn't mean she will have an English accent in the film.
    Her casting is fine. It's the last thing to worry about as far as this film goes. It's going to have plenty of other issues.

    yeah I agree. Some people seem to have trouble thinking an actor of a certain nationality can't change their accent. She has played americans in all the films I've seen her in. I'm sure she can do a russian accent if thats what the character requires.

    I'm sorry but this not being the "Real American Hero" is not rubbing me the right way. I am from a military family and I always enjoyed GI JOE for a cool looking up to my cousins in the Marines thing as much a I enjoyed it as a show. Yeah, nothing like the real Marines but I was a kid.

    Either way, Miller's hot so that's cool.

    I understand the scottish arms dealer (Destro) but not sure on the Brussels part.

    I remember reading this story a few weeks ago.

    Hasbro Comments on G.I. JOE Movie

    This movie will be a modern telling of the "G.I. Joe vs. Cobra" storyline and its compelling characters that Hasbro created 25 years ago. The G.I. Joe team will not be based in Brussels. Instead, they will be based out of the "Pit" as they were throughout the 1980s comic book series. And, in keeping with the G.I. Joe vs. Cobra fantasy, the movie will feature characters and locations from around the world. Duke, the lead character and head of the G.I. Joe team, will embody the values of bravery and heroism that the first generation of G.I. Joe figures established.

    Sienna Miller looks more like Scarlett than The Baroness. They should get someone like Kate Beckinsale or Famke Jannsen for the Baroness. Also, I totally hate the idea of the Joe HQ being based in Brussels or Europe for that matter:cmad: !!! Its a Real American Hero not a Real European Hero!!!! On a lighter note they should also get Sam Elliott for Wild Bill........

    Booo! Talk about completely random casting. :confused::up:

    There are a few characters that Sienna would be a better fit. Milla Jovovich, Barbara Nedeljakova or Famke Janssen would make much better choices for Baroness.

    Bill Goldberg would be pretty good as Gung-Ho. He looks a lot like him IMO.

    I wouldn't have skewed so young, personally. Baroness has always seemed like late 20's, early 30's at the most. Like Catherine Zeta Jones Entrapment age. And are classifying this movie as a comic film or just a misc. film? I keep wondering why it's in this thread.
