byung hun lee begins shooting on g.i. joe

Well, I guess it's really happening. A few months back, it was announced that South Korean actor Byung-hun Lee would play the ninja Storm Shadow in the upcoming G.I. Joe movie, based on the 1980s cartoon/comic book/toy line. For those unfamiliar with the franchise, Storm Shadow is one of G.I. Joe's coolest, most popular characters, next to Snake Eyes.

Well, it has begun. Paramount Pictures just put out a press release saying that the actor has completed his first day of filming: Byung Hun Lee Starts Shooting G.I. Joe. While I have some misgivings about this movie (it has the serious potential to be disastrous), I'm looking forward to seeing a talented actor like Lee in his first Hollywood role. And ninjas are awesome.
