Having just enjoyed a breakout role in horror comedy thriller Ready Or Not, Samara Weaving has naturally been pursued by studios for big films. She's now landed a role in the new G.I. Joe spin-off film, Snake Eyes.

Crazy Rich Asians' Henry Golding is playing the title character, a trained ninja who ends up a key member of the Joes despite rarely taking off his mask or saying much of anything. Historically, he's also been known for his long-term romance with Scarlett (Weaving's role if she makes a deal) one of the original parts of the team.

The story will focus on Snake Eyes' quest for vengeance in the wake of his father's death and his training alongside blood brother (and ultimately, enemy) Storm Shadow (Andre Koji) under the tutelage of Hard Master (Iko Uwais). We'll also see the evil agent known as the Baroness (Úrsula Corberó)

Robert Schwentke will direct, working from a script by Evan Spiliotopoulos. The film itself is set for release next year.
