G.I. JOE: THE FALL OF COBRA (Fan Film)

From director André Joseph of ITN Distribution’s VENDETTA GAMES and Michael Schiavo of Hamster Pellet Productions comes the short fan film inspired by the classic Hasbro toy line and Marvel Comics animated series, G.I. JOE: THE FALL OF COBRA. Set after the events of 1987’s G.I. JOE: THE MOVIE, a recovering Duke sends Stalker, Scarlett, and Snake-Eyes on an unsanctioned mission to Cobra Island where they confront a newly revived Cobra Commander along with Destro and the Baroness. We didn’t just make this for experimentation. We did it for the love of Joe and what we aspired the Hollywood movies to be even on a shoestring budget.

Starring Diamond Harding as Stalker, Erin Marie Adams as Scarlett, Kidd Jeanmary as Snake-Eyes, Mako San as Destro, Kathryn Mary Wood as the Baroness, Albert Albanese III as Mainframe, and Michael Schiavo as Duke & Cobra Commander.
