GI Joe movies move forward as Paramount want Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson back and to give Snake Eyes his own movie

May 17th, 2018 by Marc Comments

We can only presume this is part of the soft reboot that the GI Joe movies are going through as Hasbro move forward with a new shared cinematic universe, but Snake Eyes, the coolest of all the Joes, is getting his own movie.

While we recently found out that Paramount want Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson back for a new GI Joe movies with That Hashtag Show reporting: “the film is set to see Johnson’s Roadblock, who first appeared in 2013’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation, assemble a new team of Joes to stop terrorists from launching a dark matter WMD that will turn their targets to dust! A third G.I. Joe film has been in development for years and many versions of it have come and gone; this, most recent, iteration is expected to join the previously announced Micronauts film and a Rom film, currently being developed by Zak Penn, in a shared cinematic universe.”

In addition to that, it’s still apparently the plan that the new Transformers (after Bumblebee) will be part of this world along with the recently announced MASK movie too.

However, outside of the core GI Joe movie, it seems that Beauty and the Beast and The Huntsman: Winter’s War writer Evan Spiliotopoulos is in talks to write the movie which will explore who Snake Eyes is as not much is known about his except he dresses all in black, doesn’t speak, has a wolf called Timber, a mortal enemy called Storm Shadow and is a total badass.

It’s weird getting old… you start hearing about projects like this (and Solo and The Dark Tower and Transformers) and realise that they’ll never bring you the magic you experienced as a child again. But you always live in hope.

More details on the GI Joe movies as and when we hear it…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
