  • G.I. Joe Re-Enlists

    Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura has long eyed turning the toy and comic book franchise G.I. Joe into a feature film for Paramount Pictures. He's even talked about casting his Shooter star Mark Wahlberg as Joe team leader Duke. Today brings news that Paramount's pact with Joe toy maker Hasbro recently expired.

    However, Variety reports that Hasbro's reps at the William Morris Agency renewed a deal between the toy manufacturer and Paramount to bring G.I. Joe to the silver screen.

    Di Bonaventura will still produce the movie, but there was no word on whether the project will still use Skip Woods' screenplay or not.

    That particular take on G.I. Joe, which reportedly had Duke teaming up with the Action Man character, has met with a mixed-to-negative response from many fans, according to reader feedback and message board postings.

      I would see it. Gi Joe was and is a classic. I wonder if I still have my little toys from when I was a kid. I know I have the animated movie.

      Cobra Out!
