GI Joe – the movie

After the Transformers movie there are now plans for a GI Joe film. There has been predictable outrage that this new version of the team is international in scope.

In a follow-up to their confirmation that Stephen Sommers will direct G.I. Joe, Variety offers this new description of the team: “G.I. Joe is now a Brussels-based outfit that stands for Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity, an international co-ed force of operatives who use hi-tech equipment to battle Cobra, an evil organization headed by a double-crossing Scottish arms dealer. The property is closer in tone to X-Men and James Bond than a war film.”

There are enough GIs lined up for the project that there may still be a few remaining when the film comes out and I can do “A GI reviews GI Joe”.
