Should the deal close, Uwais will join Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians), who is taking on the role of the titular ninja commando, and Andrew Koji (Warrior), who is portraying Snake Eyes’ blood brother-turned-mortal enemy Storm Shadow.
Hard Master is the head of the Arashikage Clan and responsible for training both Snake Eyes and his nephew Tommy, a.k.a. Storm Shadow – the latter of whom is blamed for the Hard Master’s murder, leading to a rift between the two students that ultimately finds them on opposite sides of the war between G.I. Joe and Cobra.
