Snake Eyes, arguably the most popular "G.I. Joe" character, may be getting his own movie.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount is developing a spinoff of the franchise, which has spawned two movies, 2009's "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" and 2013's "G.I Joe: Retaliation."

Snake Eyes is the silent ninja commando who first appeared in the 1980s as part of Hasbro and Marvel Comics' relaunch of the G.I. Joe toy line. He never reveals his face, wears all black, and sometimes carries out missions with pet wolf Timber. He has a romantic relationship with fellow team member Scarlett and his nemesis is blood brother ninja Storm Shadow.

Paramount has been looking to reboot the franchise. For this potential spinoff, the studio is in talks with Evan Spiliotopoulos, the writer of "Beauty and the Beast" and "The Huntsman: Winter's War," to pen the script.
