The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Robert Schwentke has been selected to possibly be the director for the movie simply called G.I. Joe Snake Eyes. Schwentke has directed such films as Allegiant, Insurgent a part of the Divergent series, R.I.P.D., RED (starring G.I.Joe alumnus Bruce Willis who played Joe Colton) and FlightPlan.
His most recent film is one that is not very well known, called The Captain a black and white World War 2 movie. It is available to rent on Youtube and Amazon. With very little being known about the Snake Eyes movie such as the writer Evan Spiliotopoulos along with just a basic idea of what it may be about, news of a director being announced is a good sign that things are indeed moving forward.
Combined with the announcement today by Brian Goldner about Hasbro’s focus for 2018 and beyond, a Joe movie is looking more and more likely. Certainly the Bumblebee movie’s performance will weigh heavily on any decisions made by Paramount to a solo character G.I.Joe story.
