Paramount



Here's a case of the Chuckles — Paramount and Hasbro are working on another spinoff of the "G.I. Joe" franchise.

The companies are already developing a Snake Eyes movie and now they've hired writers Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec ("Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles") to pen a script.

The project is described as an ensemble piece and reportedly features the character Chuckles, who has not appeared in any previous "G.I. Joe" films.

Chuckles made his debut in the action figure line in 1987 and in the Marvel Comics that year. The character is known for his undercover and infiltration work.

Paramount has been looking to revive the franchise, which is one of the more popular toy-to-movie adaptations. It is also developing a new mainline team movie as well as the Snake Eyes spinoff.
