The G.I. Joe spin-off Snake Eyes has been pushed back to a fall 2020 release date. Paramount also announced that they are pushing the Micronauts movie back to June 2021. The news isn't really all that surprising since neither project has started production at this time. With that being said, Snake Eyes should be getting ready to roll cameras if it is expected to meet its fall 2020 release date, which means casting should be announced shortly. The project was originally set to hit theaters on March 27th, 2020.
Snake Eyes is set to be directed by Robert Schwentke from a script by Evan Spiliotopoulos. However, it isn't clear if Spiliotopoulos' script will still be used, but he did write the first draft. The movie will be the third G.I. Joe adaptation to make it to the big screen and will serve as an origin story for the fan-favorite titular character. With that being said, details are scarce at the moment, but Paramount intends to have the movie hit theaters on October 16th, 2020.
Micronauts is in the same position and will now debut in theaters on June 4th, 2021. Micronauts are sci-fi hemed figures, which were manufactured and marketed by Mego from 1976 to 1980. Plans for a movie were originally announced in 2009 and in 2013, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick revealed they were working on a script for the project through J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot production company. However, it is unclear at this time if Wernick and Reese are still attached. With that being said, we should be getting some more information from Paramount soon.
G.I. Joe fans have been waiting quite a long time for the long-talked about Snake Eyes movie. Leo Howard, and Ray Park, played young Snake Eyes and adult Snake Eyes respectively, in 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Park then reprised his role for Retaliation. It is unknown if Park will be coming back for the spin-off, but it seems unlikely. There have not been a whole lot of updates in regard to the standalone Snake Eyes movie other than the recent release date changes by the studio.
Paramount and Hasbro are looking to release a lot more than just the Snake Eyes movie and Micronauts. F. Gary Gray is developing a big screen adaptation of M.A.S.K., which is being described as "a contemporary subculture movie with a youth empowerment angle." It is believed that the aforementioned movie will reside in the same universe as Snake Eyes and Micronauts, along with Visionaries: Knights of the Magical Light and Rom. With production set to begin in the near future on the G.I. Joe spin-off, the studio will more than likely announce casting information soon, which should shed more light on the whole universe they are trying to create with Hasbro. The new release dates was first reported by The Wrap.
