Popular G.I. Joe Character Is Getting His Own Spin-Off

First appearing in 1982, the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero toyline is a popular military-themed line of action figures and toys owned by Hasbro that has released more than 500 figures and 250 vehicles and playsets. The toy series has even spawned two different animated series, a cereal line, a comic published by Marvel, and a film franchise, one of the characters of which is now apparently getting their own spin-off.

Paramount Pictures will be developing a feature centered around the silent ninja character of the team Snake-Eyes and has reportedly hired the man behind 2017’s Beauty and the Beast and The Huntsman: Winter’s War, Evan Spiliotopoulos to be the screenwriter. It was also recently announced that Spiliotopoulos has been hired to write the sequel to the Netflix cop film Bright.

Snake-Eyes never reveals his face or speaks and has an archenemy in the form of his brother by blood Storm Shadow. He also has a pet wolf Timber whom he every now and then carts around on his solo missions. In both of Paramount’s other G.I. Joe films G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009) and G.I Joe: Retaliation (2013) the character was played by acrobatic actor Ray Park, but it has not yet been revealed if he will be strapping into the all-black attire again and returning for the solo film.
