Despite the fact that the beloved G.I. Joe action figures and animated series have yet to spawn a successful film franchise, one of its most popular characters is in line for a solo spinoff.

 

According to a new report from THR, Paramount has decided to put a Snake Eyes-centric spinoff movie into development. The studio is currently engaged in talks with Evan Spiliotopoulos, writer of Beaty and the Beast and The Huntsman: Winter's War, to pen the film's -script. Earlier this week, Spiliotopoulos was hired to write the Bright sequel for Netflix and David Ayer.

 

The report also states that Brian Goldner will be one of the solo movie's producers.

 

This solo movie arrives as the third live action G.I. Joe movie in the last ten years. Paramount produced both G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra in 2009, and G.I. Joe: Retaliation in 2013. Neither movie was well received by critics, nor did they perform all that well at the box office.

Both films did feature Snake Eyes however, each time being played by Ray Park. The actor is also known for his roles as Darth Maul in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, and Toad in X-Men.

Snake Eyes IS the most popular character. Period. 

He was GI JOE for me in the 1980s, similar to Wolverine being the X-Men for me.

I agree on the hero side. But as villains, who doesn't remember Zartan, Baroness, Cobra Commander and Storm Shadow?

Destro is another one. But I think first four rank higher.

That's one plus with GI JOE in that like Batman and Spider-Man they have a great rogues gallery of villains.

I hope the GI JOE Snake Eyes movie is based on the GI JOE Snake Eyes issues 1-50 

Right there is gold like ASM 1-50. 

These are must reads.

Snake Eyes was always my go to Joe as a kid, I really hope they take the time to make something special with this one.

Agreed - but Stormshadow is pretty close in popularity IMO - but definitely Snake Eyes on the Joe side (but Road Block, Sgt. Slaughter and Duke were personal favs as well :) )
