Paramount to Reboot ‘G.I. Joe’ Franchise with solo ‘Snake Eyes’ Movie

G.I. Joe franchise arrived and died too soon without anyone taking notice of it. Paramount Pictures the production house behind the franchise tried their best to make it successful after first one titled G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra didn’t live up to the expectations. The film only gathered an amount of 307 million dollars after a humongous production value. The studio tried to boost some energy into the franchise by casting Dwayne Johnson in the titular role for the sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation. However, the movie didn’t spare that well at the box office, and the primary reason behind that was the lackluster storyline. Currently, no date is attached to G.I. Joe 3 due to the busy schedule of Dwayne Johnson.

Paramount is looking to change the direction of G.I. Joe universe by revamping it with a movie focused on one of the significant and unique character of G.I. Joe that is Snake Eyes. The studio has brought in co-writer of The Huntsman: Winter’s War and Beauty and the Beast (2017), Evan Spiliotopoulos to write the script of Snake Eyes movie which will revolve around the character who is a deadly Ninja that never speaks, going by the G.I. Joe lore of Snake Eyes. The character of Snake eyes has always been the most mysterious one, and the movie focused on him inevitably builds an interest. However, the primary challenge in making this film is that of bringing a lead character to life that never speaks. Evan Spiliotopoulos undoubtedly has a tough task at his hands to develop an interesting story from the bits and pieces.


As of now, nothing is written in stone for this project, and we will see a lot of changes as the things get going. In earlier movies, Ray Park portrayed the role of Snake Eyes, but this time it looks bleak that he will be reprising the role as the studio will go for an actor with a face value. Paramount is undoubtedly moving stuff around with Hasbro to cash-in on this lucrative franchise.

However, we will have to wait some time to get more concrete details on this project. Till then do let us know your views on it and whom would like to play the lead role of Snake Eyes?
