Here’s hoping his pet wolf, Timber, makes it into the film.
Paramount Pictures has announced today, via THR, that the G.I. Joe film franchise is soon getting a spinoff in the form of a Snake Eyes solo movie, with Evan Spiliotopoulos (Beauty and the Beast, The Huntsman: Winter’s War) in talks to write the script.
“Snake Eyes is a character from the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero toyline, comic books, and cartoon series. He is one of the original and most popular members of the G.I. Joe Team, and is most known for his relationships with Scarlett and Storm Shadow. Snake Eyes is one of the most prominent characters in the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero franchise, having appeared in every series of the franchise since its inception.
Snake Eyes is the team’s original commando, and much of his history and information, including his real name, place of birth and service number, have remained “CLASSIFIED” throughout all depictions of his origin. His primary military specialty is infantry, and his secondary military specialty is hand-to-hand combat instructor.”
Ray Park previously played Snake Eyes in both The Rise of Cobra and Retaliation.
Brian Goldner will produce the character’s solo outing.
