    Default GI Joe movie

    This looks like it may be interesting......


    Hasbro Comments on G.I. Joe Movie
    Source: Necomortis November 5, 2007

    Hasbro has released to following message to fans regarding Paramount Pictures' live-action G.I. Joe adaptation, to be directed by Stephen Sommers and written by Stuart Beattie:

    Hasbro's G.I. Joe Team wanted to take this opportunity to clarify some of the facts regarding the G.I. Joe live-action movie that we are developing with Paramount Pictures.

    First and foremost, we are not changing what the G.I. Joe brand is about. The name "G.I. Joe" will always be synonymous with bravery and heroism.

    The G.I. Joe brand has enjoyed a successful 43-year history, spanning two key generations. The first was the line of 12-inch "realistic military" figures that were popular with kids in the 1960s and 1970s.

    The second generation, was created in 1982, and is based on a cast of fictional heroes and villains that make up the "G.I. Joe vs. Cobra" fantasy. The premise of this fantasy is the story of the G.I. Joe team, led by Duke, and their "fight for freedom wherever there is trouble" against the evil Cobra Commander and his Cobra force. This storyline was an instant hit with kids in the early 1980s, spawning a highly popular 3-3/4-inch action figure line, comic book collection and animated series.

    This movie will be a modern telling of the "G.I. Joe vs. Cobra" storyline and its compelling characters that Hasbro created 25 years ago. The G.I. Joe team will not be based in Brussels. Instead, they will be based out of the "Pit" as they were throughout the 1980s comic book series. And, in keeping with the G.I. Joe vs. Cobra fantasy, the movie will feature characters and locations from around the world. Duke, the lead character and head of the G.I. Joe team, will embody the values of bravery and heroism that the first generation of G.I. Joe figures established.

    G.I. Joe is a very important property to Hasbro and we thank all of our fans for their enthusiasm. Without all of you, the brand would not be where it is today.

    G.I. Joe is expected to hit theaters in 2009.

    The real question is, after the credits roll will they teach us to not talk to strangers?

    you should search for all the overdubbed spoofed ones on youtube... they usually get taken down pretty quickly, so if that doesn't work, try googling...

    With any luck, the writer's strike will continue long enough for this fad to pass so we can do without another travesty to a classic IP. Heman?

    The only way I envision Heman in our modern culture is in a spoof or a gay porn--or both. Otherwise this is a complete waste of time. I'm holding out for a live action "Care Bears" or "My Little Pony." What a bunch of crap.

    actually, they're going for a lord of the rings meets 300 look... warner bros is footing the bill, with i believe joel silver involved?

    here is a submission by someone who was lobbying to get the directing job; it's a rough concept/storyboard-like video, so take it for what it's worth:

    http://www.iesb.net/index.php?option...3580&Itemid=99

    the original mini-comics treated he-man as a conan-like serious warrior... it's the tv show that made it "batman of the '60s"-like campy...

    More Confirmed for G.I. Joe
    Source: The Hollywood Reporter
    December 20, 2007

    The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Rachel Nichols (P2, "Alias"), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje ("Lost") and Said Taghmaoui (The Kite Runner) will join Sienna Miller and Ray Park in Paramount's live action film G.I. Joe.

    Stephen Sommers is directing Stuart Beattie's latest screenplay draft based on the popular Hasbro action figures, comic book series and Saturday morning cartoon. That cartoon featured military soldiers fighting a terrorist group called Cobra, with characters like the mute ninja Snake Eyes (Park) on the side of the good guys.

    Nichols will play Scarlett, a skilled martial artist who specializes in hand-to-hand combat and counterintelligence.

    Akinnuoye-Agbaje will play ordnance expert Heavy Duty and Taghmaoui will play Breaker, the team's communications specialist.

    Miller will play the Baroness, known for her espionage skills.

    Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Hasbro's Brian Goldner are producing with Sommers and Bob Ducsay. The film is scheduled for an August 7, 2009 release.

    Somebody forwarded me the picture with him holding his gun today at work, and I freaked-out.

    There is a "lightened" version of it somewhere out there, where you can see more detail, albeit his suit looks less dark.

    Looks incredible!
