Robert Schwentke, director of films such as RED and R.I.P.D., is negotiating his participation as director of Snake Eyes, the new film in the form of spin-off of G.I. Joe.
Schwentke would take over this Paramount and Allspark Pictures production based on the popular ninja commando, Snake Eyes, according to TheWrap.
The first draft of the script is already on the table and is the work of Evan Spiliotopoulos, responsible for the scripts of Beauty and the Beast in Real Action and The Hunter and the Ice Queen. The story "revolves around the character's origins as he tries to become a member of the Arashikage Clan, one of the ninja clans settled in Japan."
Snake Eyes will be the third film of the license after G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, which raised more than 300 million dollars in 2009 with a budget of 175 million, not including distribution and advertising.
In 2013, G.I. Joe 2: The revenge got 375.7 million with a budget of 155 million, proving that it is a prolific license for those responsible.
In the spring of 2016, Paramount began to develop its cinematic universe, with licenses like G.I. Joe, Micronauts, Visionaires, M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand) and ROM.
Snake Eyes will premiere on March 27, 2020 if nothing goes wrong.
