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.
Armed with the latest in military and spy technology, the team of elite soldiers known as G.I. Joe travel around the globe to wherever their services are needed. In their latest assignment Gen. Hawk (Dennis Quaid), Duke (Channing Tatum) and the rest of the G.I. Joe team take on Destro (Christopher Eccleston), a corrupt arms dealer, and fight the growing threat of the mysterious Cobra organization. Read More
