NEWS FLASH: Channing Tatum Featured on New 'G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra' Video Games & in 'Dance Flick'

Channing Tatum as Duke in 'G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra' on Game CoversAs I previously reported, Electronic Arts is developing the G.I. JOE: Rise of Cobra video game, and yesterday, they revealed all of the cover shots of every system where the game is being released (PlayStation 3, Sony PSP, PlayStation 2, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, Xbox 360).

The G.I. JOE video game will feature an exclusive storyline that picks up where the live-action movie leaves off, allowing players to re-create and re-live the greatest moments from the film, cartoon series and action figure toy line.

The game covers feature Channing Tatum as Duke, Marlon Wayans as Ripcord, Rachel Nichols as Scarlett, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Heavy Duty, Ray Park as Snakes Eyes, Byung-hun Lee as Storm Shadow, and Sienna Miller as The Baroness.

The game will actually feature a total of 12 G.I. JOE® characters, each with unique abilities and weapons, and will include an intense single-screen co-op mode allowing two players to easily unite as a team in a classic struggle between good and evil as they work together to defeat the powers of the COBRA organization.

Below you can check out Chan in the official box art for the games in the slideshow. Enjoy!!!

Electronic Arts G.I. JOE: The Rise of Cobra video games will be released on July 27, 2009.

On a kind-of-related side note, Cinemablend caught up with Channing Tatum's 'G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra' co-star and really good friend Marlon Wayans last week during a press conference for his new movie 'Dance Flick', in theaters today.

It's said that imitation is the highest form of flattery, and Marlon talked about how the parody pokes fun at Chan's role in 'Step Up' and how Chan handled the ribbing when he saw footage of the movie when they were filming 'G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra'. Here's a little snippet from the article...
And Wayans says Tatum was well aware of the mockery that was going on on the Dance Flick set. "At lunch, he would come in my trailer and watch the dailies [for Dance Flick] with me. He'd be like, 'Dude, that's so wrong! Are you making fun of me? That's hilarious!' But what a sport, man. It's a testament to the kind of kid he is."

The Wayans clan also made sure not to leave Jenna Dewan out of the fun, because her role of Nora from 'Step Up' gets spoofed too in the parody. If you want to see how well Chan and Jenna's doppelgangers do in the film and you want to see Rotten Tomatoes' most highly rated new film, go check out 'Dance Flick' this weekend!
