Buckle your seat belts… G.I. Joe: Initiate opens fire this weekend!

We’ve been talking about the G.I. Joe: Initiate fanfilm for a while now, throughout the entire Kickstarter campaign, up through their various character reveals, and now it would appear that production on Episode 1 is complete, and G.I. Joe: Initiate launches for the first time at Coil Con 2012 September 8th!

The film should hit YouTube very shortly thereafter, so hopefully for all of us, by this time next week we’ll have seen G.I. Joe: Initiate.  Directed by Fred Doss, who has the distinction of being the victim of both Cobra (in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) and the Decepticons (in the 2007 Transformers live action film) has a long and storied film background, and I’m excited to see him translate that into a high quality G.I. Joe fanfilm.  Lots of military folks were involved in the making of this production, I cannot wait to see it.

To stay up to date and get all the skinny behind the film, check out the links and info below:
