Stephen Sommers's G.I. Joe movie continues to move forward with casting. Marlon Wayans has been cast as Ripcord, the leader of the military unit. And Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in negotiations to play Duke Hauser's best friend, the science officer that is assigned to the Special Forces unit. This project continues to be shaping up more and more like a major blockbuster event. The cast already includes A-list talent like Sienna Miller and Rachel Nichols. Personally, I'm a bit surprised that Josph Gordon-Levitt has signed on to such a project. Until now he's chosen to do heavy character work in indie films like Brick and Mysterious Skin, this is a sharp contrast for him, but I have no doubt he can pull it off.
