While "G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra" is still months away from its theatrical debut, one of its stars, Sienna Miller, has opened up about what to expect from the live-action adventure movie. In an interview with MTV News, the actress who will be seen as The Baroness in the film teases on the fighting scene with Rachel Nichols' agent "Scarlett" O'Hara as well as Joseph Gordon-Levitt's take on Cobra Commander.
About the fighting sequence, the 27-year-old shared, "There's a really, really good girl fight between Rachel Nichols and myself." Recalling on the preparation for the particular scene, she further explained, "It's like a proper, violent girl-fight scene. And we both worked so hard for the choreography and the training of it. ... We both got hurt. I'm clumsy, so I slipped on a rubber bullet at one point and sprained my wrist quite badly. She ran into a flame and got burned."
When asked about Gordon-Levitt's character, the star of "The Edge of Love" responded, "That character is shrouded in mystery, so I think I have to be quite discreet with that." She then teased that the actor has created a voice dissimilar from the old cartoon. "We did the table reading and [Gordon-Levitt] has got this voice that he's come up with for it that's fantastic," she gushed. "He's gone for it, and he's done it really well."
Of her other co-star, Channing Tatum, Miller said, "He's great, he's fantastic, I can't think of anyone more perfect to play that part. He's a brilliant, brilliant actor and is physically big enough and strong enough. He's just the sweetest guy, just a Southern gent." Moreover, she described the movie as "gadget heaven", adding that it is "definitely taking effects to a whole new level."
"G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra" is based on the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero toy franchise. Directed by "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" producer Stephen Sommers, it stars Channing Tatum, Dennis Quaid, Marlon Wayans, Sienna Miller, Rachel Nichols, Arnold Vosloo and Said Taghmaoui among others. The action adventure has been set to arrive in U.S. theaters on August 7.
