Variety has reported that Robert Schwentke is in early talks to direct a G.I.Joe spin-off film based on the character Snake Eyes at Paramount. For those who are not aware Snake Eyes is one of the main characters featured within the G.I.Joe franchise. Similar to the other live-action adaptations based on Hasbro’s properties, Brian Goldner is set to produce this film.
It was reported earlier this year that Evan Spiliotopoulos was set to write the script of the film.
Variety provided a description of the character.
Snake Eyes is a silent ninja commando who dresses in all black, never reveals his face, and doesn’t speak. He stands out among the military anti-terrorist group and quickly establishes himself as the most popular. He has a special relationship with Scarlett, the team’s one-time only female member, and sometimes carries out solo missions with his pet wolf, Timber. His archenemy is Storm Shadow, a ninja who is also his blood brother.
No other details are confirmed at this time so stay tuned for updates.
