Hi, everyone! I'm doing a piece on the G.I. Joe live action movie for the Monitor Duty blog ( http://www.thehutch.com/monitorduty/ ) and I'm wondering what the latest is on the whole "no longer American / NATO-esque based in Brussels" controversy. I know there was a rather large backlash in the fall, but I don't know that that affected anything. I've been reading through the threads best as I can, but I thought I'd just ask for the latest poop:
Is it still based in Brussels?
Is it still not an American organization?
Is the enemy just a "Scottish arms dealer" (i.e. Destro) or is it now Cobra proper?
I'd heard there was a script review over here, but I couldn't find it. The link I tried didn't work.
thanks for your help!

The Script review had to be removed for copyright reasons, but I can tell you that no, It's not based in Brussels. The Pit's location is in Egypt (If I remember right) And it's still a Global Organization.
Dear Hasbro, Give me Firewall or give me death!

Fanzing, here are a few answers.
Is it still based in Brussels? - No, they're in Egypt now!
Is it still not an American organization? - International
Is the enemy just a "Scottish arms dealer" (i.e. Destro) or is it now Cobra proper? - Let's just say...you won't be dissapointed ;)
And yes, there was a script review here, but it was taken down per the request of Paramount & Hasbro.

All of the answers to your questions have been said once or twice over so there isn't much else to say.
But there really isn't much to talk about the movie other than casting news and some small tidbits.
P.S. C.I.A.D. is my hero.
