Hasbro confirms G.I. Joe reboot

April 4th, 2017 by bash Comments

Paramount Pictures and Hasbro are set to reboot the G.I. Joe franchise.

The news comes after years of developing a third movie following Rise of Cobra and Retaliation.

Hasbro’s Chief Content Officer Stephen Davis recently chatted with IGN about the property, confirming that it remains very much a part of their plans, and promising “a different kind of G.I. Joe” when it does return to the big screen.

The world has changed, and I think you’re going to see G.I. Joe changing with it,” said Davis. “There’s going to be a much more contemporary approach to the whole franchise, and that will allow us to develop different characters. We hope to create a head snap. It’s a different kind of [G.I.] Joe — one that still resonates with Joe fans but brings in an uninitiated audience and expands the audience internationally and domestically.”

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra was released in 2009 and grossed $302.5 million in the US, while its 2013 sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation fared marginally better with $375.7 million.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
