Paramount desperately wants to make a third G.I. Joe film. Last we checked, they’d hired D.J. Caruso to direct and screenwriter Jonathan Lemkin was working on the script.

Hasbro and Marvel Comics jointly stumbled into a gold mine in the early ’80s when they collaborated on a revival of the old G.I. Joe toy line. We’re at the point now where a third live-action movie is in development based on those toys, comics and cartoons from the ’80s. DJ Caruso has been in talks to direct GI Joe 3, and now a set of rumors claims to ID some of the new characters that will show up. Two are old Joe villains, the twins Tomax and Xamot. Then there’s the claim that M.A.S.K., one of G.I. Joe’s would-be rivals on the toy and cartoon front, will be part of the third film.
