Paramount and Hasbro are already in negotiations with screenwriting team Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse to pen a follow-up to the upcoming film, which is due for release in November.

The new movie will not be a direct sequel but 'rather an expansion to take audience goers deeper into the world of Joe,' according to The Hollywood Reporter. 






More G.I. Joe: After somewhat successful live-action franchise installments in 2009 and 2013 (Dwayne Johnson and Channing Tatum in G.I. Joe: Retaliation seen here), a new G.I. Joe movie is in the works


The first two G.I. Joe films, 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and 2013's G.I. Joe: Retaliation, attracted several big ticket movie stars, including Bruce Willis, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Channing Tatum, Dennis Quaid, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Sienna Miller.

Meanwhile, the upcoming Snake Eyes film stars Henry Golding as the titular ninja, after previously being incarnated by X-Men and Star Wars actor Ray Park in both of the previous films.

'The amount of physical stunts that we do outweigh that of any of the CGI. Generally speaking, it's all physical stunts,' he added.

The Crazy Rich Asians star - who was born in Malaysia before moving to England as a child - admitted that his body has taken a battering on set because he was prepared to shoot so many of his own stunts.  

'I had a few injuries,' Henry allowed. 'I'm not gonna lie; I blew out my hip, tour đài loan giá rẻ I tore my quad, my meniscus like tore.'

Golding insisted his injuries have been beneficial for his performance, as being 'put through the wringer' brought an honest 'tenacity' to his 'susceptible' and 'volatile' alter ego. 

Henry stars alongside Andrew Koji as Storm Shadow and Samara Weaving as Snake Eyes' love interest Scarlett in the upcoming actioner, whilst Iko Uwais and Ursula Corbero will also be featured.

Snake Eyes is a spin-off to the previous two G.I. Joe films, all of which are inspired by the hugely popular military themed toy range of the same name.
