Variety is exclusively reporting that Robert Schwentke is in early negotiations with Paramount Pictures to direct the G.I Joe spinoff Snake Eyes.
Snake Eyes is a silent ninja commando who dresses all in back, never reveals his face and doesn’t speak. He stands out among the military anti-terrorist group and quickly establishes himself as the most popular character. He has a special relationship with Scarlett, the team’s only female member and sometimes carries out solo missions with his pet wolf Timber. His nemesis is Storm Shadow, a ninja who is also his blood brother.
The script is written by Evan Spiliotopoulos and Brian Goldner will serve as producer on the project.
