The G.I. Joe movie has started shooting, and the first picture from the set has been released. IESB.net has revealed a picture of Dennis Quaid dressed for his role as General Hawk.

Dennis Quaid

It's a nice clean, crisp military uniform, so it works out well enough. Truthfully, there's no reason to expect that they'll have any trouble bringing the characters that wear traditional military gear to life accurately. What will be interesting to see is how well the more exotic-looking characters are interpreted.

G.I. Joe is being directed by Stephen Sommers, and stars Dennis Quaid, Channing Tatum, Ray Parks, Rachel Nichols, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Said Taghmaoui, Marlon Wayans, Christopher Eccelston, Sienna Miller, Byung-hun Lee, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The film is scheduled to come to theatres August 7, 2009.
