More Join "G.I. Joe"

Rachel Nichols ( The Amityville Horror), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (TV’s “Lost) and Said Taghmaoui ("Sleeper Cell," "The Kite Runner") have joined Paramount's live action film "G.I. Joe.”
Stephen Sommers is directing Stuart Beattie's latest screenplay draft based on the popular Hasbro action figures, comic book series and Saturday morning cartoon.
That cartoon featured military soldiers fighting a terrorist group called Cobra, with characters like the mute ninja Snake Eyes (Ray Park) on the side of the good guys. This latest version has G.I. JOE, which stands for Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity, as an international force of operatives set in Brussels.
Nichols will play Scarlett, a skilled martial artist who specializes in hand-to-hand combat and counterintelligence. Akinnuoye-Agbaje will play ordnance expert Heavy Duty and Taghmaoui will play Breaker, the team's communications specialist.
The pair join Sienna Miller and Ray Park, who were recently cast on the project. The film is scheduled for an August 2009 release. Source
