Another G.I. JOE Spin-Off In The Works In Addition To SNAKE EYES
 

 

Even though it’s been sometime since we’ve heard of any activity regarding the big screen G.I. Joe franchise, it ain’t dead yet. According to the folks at The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount and Hasbro Toys are developing a new G.I. Joe spinoff film. And this one will feature Chuckles. No, not as in it’ll be funny (though it might be!), but the character of Chuckles, who was a popular member of the team in its later years. He’s said to not be the main character for the film, but he will be a part of the ensemble for the first time in live-action.

The current as-yet untitled movie is being written by Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec. The pair recently wrote the most recent Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies as well as Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. No word yet on which other G.I. Joe members are set to appear, or if the movie is going to be in continuity with the previous two films. Given that Paramount and Hasbro essentially rebooted the Transformers franchise with the excellent Bumblebee last year, they might take the same route with this latest iteration of G.I. Joe.

So who the heck is Chuckles, you might ask? Introduced both in the toy line and in the popular Marvel comics back in 1987, Sergeant Philip M. Provost was an undercover specialist from Little Rock, Arkansas. Despite appearing as an action figure and in the comics, he never actually made it into the weekday afternoon animated series. He did appear once though in cartoon form, in the animated G.I. Joe: The Movie.

This isn’t the first G.I. Joe spinoff to have been announced. A few years back, they announced a Snake Eyes spin-off, based on one of the most popular characters on the team. But for one reason or the other, it never got off the ground. Here’s hoping Chuckles has better luck than Snake Eyes did.

Good to hear they're makin' a movie about Snake Eyes. He was my favorite character (with Cobra Commander) back in the day when I was a kid readin' the comics. Anybody remember that one magazine that had no "subtitles"/speech bubbles (I have no idea what they're called) at all?

I hope they do it right, last time they made all the joes wear the same uniform. Joes appeal is they were all individuals and worked as a team. I still have my bazooka shirt.

As on OG GI Joe fan here I'd never want to see a solo Snake Eyes film. Don't get it wrong Snake gets busy but there's one problem with giving him his own movie, HE DOESN'T TALK. Not sure how you do a whole movie around a dude who doesn't talk or even talk his mask off. Maybe if it was an origin story or something maybe...

But to the bigger issue at hand NO, just leave GI Joe, Transformers, A Team...all the classics from my childhood alone. These screen writers and directors refuse to respect the cannon or what made these properties popular. It's like they try to say " hey we are smarter than the fan so here take whatever we give you and deal with it". I don't want to run the risk of them fu*king up G.I. Joe anymore than they already have with those 2 wack a*s movies they did.

I think it would be interesting to have a G.I. Joe movie about a support team, not the main characters. They would be non-combat mission personnel who help the G.I. Joe guys: helicopter mechanic, dentist, Human Resources specialist, cook, chaplain, and others.
On an average night while working at a forward operating base during a covert G.I. Joe mission, Cobra secretly ambushes the base... and these support guys have to fall into action... in the most challenging f*ght for their lives!!!
