Paramount Pictures has launched development on a “Snake Eyes” movie as a G.I. Joe spinoff with “Beauty and the Beast” writer Evan Spiliotopoulos in negotiations to write the script.
Brian Goldner is on board to produce “Snake Eyes,” based on the Hasbro toy that’s a silent ninja commando. He was portrayed by Ray Park in the 2009 film “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” and the 2013 sequel “G.I. Joe: Retaliation.” The character dressed in all black, never revealed his face and never spoke.
The two films grossed more than $600 million combined at the worldwide box office.
Spiliotopoulos’ credits include “The Huntsman: Winters War” and Netflix’s “Bright.” The news was first reported by the Hollywood Reporter.
