That wackiest of the Wayans brothers, Marlon Wayans (Scary Movie, White Chicks, Little Man) has joined the cast of the upcoming, live-action G.I. Joe movie.

According to Variety, Wayans will be portraying the Joe team member Ripcord. There’s no word yet on if Wayans will bring his zany* sense of humor to the role for some (completely unneeded) comic relief, but this geek is hoping that’s not the case.

More movie details after the jump!

*If you can call his sense of comedy "zany". I, for one, do not find him funny in the least.

Filming is set to begin next month, and the movie is planned for an August 7, 2009 release.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura, who produced the highly successful Transformers, will produce G.I. Joe.
