Paramount sets release dates for 'G.I. Joe' and 'Dungeons & Dragons' movies

UPI News Service, 12/26/2017 

Paramount has set a number of release dates for a collection of upcoming tentpole films including another entry in its "G.I. Joe" series and an adaptation of "Dungeons and Dragons."

The film, simply titled "G.I. Joe," is set to hit theaters on March 27, 2020.

The title is noticeably missing the number three, potentially hinting at the project being a reboot for the Hasbro series.

Paramount previously released "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" in 2009 and a sequel, "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" in 2013 that starred Dwayne Johnson as hero Roadblock.

"G.I. Joe" series star Byung-Hun Lee, who portrayed villainous ninja Storm Shadow, previously said in September 2016 that Paramount had yet to enter into production on a third film due to Johnson's busy schedule.

"I heard from the studio that there's a possibility to do the third one, but I think they're waiting for the actors' schedules, Lee said at the time.

"They're arranging the schedules for the actors, especially Dwayne Johnson."

"Dungeons and Dragons," based on the tabletop role-playing game, will arrive in theaters on July 23, 2021.

The property was first adapted into a film starring Jeremy Irons in 2000 at New Line Cinema.

Paramount also announced dates for a film based on Hasbro's Micronauts toy line that will arrive on Oct. 16, 2020 and an untitled Hasbro film set for Oct. 1, 2021.

The studio was previously developing a Hasbro cinematic universe in 2015 that would have included G.I. Joe, Micronauts and films based on Visionaries, M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand) and ROM.
