With recent news that a third installment of Hasbros’ ‘G.I. Joe’ franchise is on the way, Paramount Pictures is looking to expand the universe with a spin-off film featuring the fan-favorite ninja commando SNAKE EYES.

Evan Spiliotopoulos (Beauty and the Beast, The Huntsman: Winter’s War) is set to pen the script with Brian Goldner producing.

For those unfamiliar with the character, ‘Snake Eyes’ is a silent ninja who is an original member of the G.I. Joe Team, and is most known for his relationships with ‘Scarlett’ and his arch-nemesis ‘Storm Shadow’ played by Korean superstar Byung Hun Lee in the first two films.

There is no annoucement yet on weather or not martial arts star RAY PARK (Accident Man) will return as ‘Snake Eyes’.

Stay tuned.
