So we previously reported that Irishman David Murray was going to be playing the film's major baddie, Destro. Well, apparently he's had to drop out, and he's been replaced by Doctor Who. Which one? The Ninth Doctor, Christopher Eccleston. Even if you missed out on his brief (but great) run on the show, you may recognize him as Claude, the invisible man on NBC's Heroes. Anyway, no offense to David Murray, but we think Eccleston is a much more exciting choice (and it’s a lot more reassuring than our last update - Larry Hama info aside).
The GI Joe movie began filming on Monday.
