G.I. Joe Casting Rumor Tidbits

statham wahlberg G.I. Joe Casting Rumor TidbitsJust a quick post about some casting rumors I’ve heard lately. Two possible candidates for the live action Stephen Sommers-directed G.I. Joe adaptation are…

Mark Wahlberg (The Departed) and his The Italian Job cohort, rising action star Jason Statham (also in War, The Transporter films). I haven’t heard much else, and found out about this in a recent Entertainment Weekly interview with Statham.

  2. That would make for a nice start, but heard this rumor before Statham was to be “Action Man” and Mark W. as Duke, but that was on the resent horrid script.
