New G.I. Joe movie set for 2020 release
Paramount is re-enlisting the G.I. Joes.
On Monday, the studio announced release dates for four upcoming movies, which all stem from its recently expanded production and distribution deal with toymaker Hasbro. Among the newly scheduled films is G.I. Joe, which will hit theaters March 27, 2020, almost exactly seven years after the Dwayne Johnson-led sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
Also due in 2020 is Micronauts, with the film adaptation of the ’70s science-fiction toy line to be released on Oct. 16.
Then, set for 2021 are Dungeons & Dragons (someone check on Vin Diesel) on July 23 and an untitled Paramount/Hasbro event film on Oct. 1.
Paramount and Hasbro have previously partnered on two G.I. Joe movies and five Transformers films (and counting). The companies announced plans for a Hasbro-themed cinematic universe last year.
