Mark Wahlberg In New G.I. Joe?

The IESB reports that at the press junket this weekend for the Mark Wahlberg drama “Shooter”, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura confirmed that as soon as “Transformers” wraps he will “immediately” jump onto a “G.I. Joe” film.

di Bonaventura hopes Wahlberg will play Conrad “Duke” Hauser in the story, field commander and second-in-command of the G.I. Joe Team. Hawk and Snake Eyes are slated to stand in for the good guys, whilst Destro and Stormshadow will be the evil Commander’s sidekicks.

The general storyline will be set before the rise of COBRA, and focuses on how the future COBRA Commander started his terrorist group.
