THR is reporting that French actress Elodie Yung is in talks to join Paramount's new G.I. Joe movie.
Yung will play a ninja member of the Joe squad named Jinx.
Jon Chu is directing the movie while Lorenzo di Bonaventura is producing the action movie.
Yung has already displayed considerable ninja-like prowess in "District 13: Ultimatum", the parkour action movie whose highlight included a sequence in which she took on corrupt cops with a knife in her ponytail. She can also be seen playing the lesbian girlfriend of Rooney Mara in David Fincheršs "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo."
