Paramount and Hasbro are developing a new G.I. Joe live-action movie spinoff. According to THR, Paramount and Hasbro have set writers Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2014) to work on an as-yet-untitled G.I. Joe spinoff movie.
The film will reportedly include Chuckles, a character who was introduced in the G.I. Joe action figures toyline and Marvel Comics in 1987, and is known for being an expert at infiltration and going undercover. However, the outlet warns that Chuckles could be dropped as the project takes shape.
Both recent G.I. Joe movies—Rise of Cobra in 2009 and Retaliation in 2013—made over $300 million worldwide. The latter even had Dwayne Johnson in it. So it makes sense that Paramount would want another film with such a marquee name brand.
While not this film, that’ll happen soon enough. The Snake Eyes movie, originally scheduled to come out in March of next year, is expected October 16, 2020.
