G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009)
“Working on something like G.I. Joe was horrendous,” said Eccleston. “I just wanted to cut my throat every day. And Thor? Just a gun in your mouth. Gone in 60 Seconds was a good experience. Nic Cage is a gentleman and fantastic actor. But G.I. Joe and Thor were…I really paid for being a whore those times.”
This isn’t the first time that Eccleston has been critical about his time on Thor: The Dark World, with the actor stating back in November that he felt Marvel Studios had been dishonest with him about what his part as Malekith the Accursed entailed, particularly with regards to the makeup process.
Eccleston, best known for appearing in the lead role on “Doctor Who” and his acclaimed supporting turn in “The Leftovers,” rarely makes the jump to Hollywood blockbusters. The actor appeared opposite Channing Tatum in the 2009 film “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra,” but that wasn’t a great experience for Eccleston either. The actor emphasized that his hatred for “G.I. Joe” and “Thor” was his own doing and compared agreeing to act in those films to being a “whore.
The network has handed out a pilot pickup to an untitled drama from Strong and David Elliot.
Elliot (Four Brothers, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) will pen the script for what is described as a legal drama set at a wrongful conviction firm.
Here's Fox's official description: "Led by a fierce and fearless female lawyer with a hunger for justice, the team reopens investigations, putting their own lives in danger to exonerate the innocent that were 'proven' guilty. The lead's motivation comes from her infamous past; as...

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that the studio would continue their attempts to gain traction with the G.I. Joe brand by launching another film, simply titled ‘G.I. Joe’ on March 27th 2020. Their previous two attempts to make the Hasbro action figures a viable cinematic property, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009) and G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013), were met with middling results, both critically and commercially.
Paramount will also roll the dice on another iteration of the Dungeons & Dragons game, with 17 years having passed since the lamentable Jeremy Irons version, July 23rd 2021 will be the date we get to see whether this is the new Warcraft, or a Lord of the Rings style success.
The other two slots were reserved for a Micronauts film
G.I. Joe 3 will reboot the franchise, and will arrive in cinemas in 2020.
It has been far too long since we've had any G.I. Joe 3 news. It's really something that we've only had two big screen outings for one of the most popular toy lines of all time, when you think about it. G.I. Joe was more than just the most massive military themed line of action figures and vehicles in history, and more than a wildly successful animated series, and more than a surprisingly great (and long running) comic book series. G.I. Joe is a pop culture brand that help defines the 1980s in a way that superhero franchises do our modern era.
But 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra never really felt like it hit the mark, yet did well enough to warrant a sequel, 2013's G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Despite feeling far more like classic Joe,
A film simply titled G.I. Joe will hit theaters March 27, 2020. The studio previously released two films based on the Hasbro property — G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009) and G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013). The studio has a movie based on another toy property, Micronauts, to open months later on Oct. 16, 2020.
Paramount also carved out a July 23, 2021 date for Dungeons & Dragons, and set aside Oct. 1, 2021 for an untitled Hasbro event film.

We’ve heard very little in the way of development since that time, but Hasbro’s Chief Content Officer Stephen Davis has been chatting to IGN about the property, confirming that it remains very much a part of their plans, and promising “a different kind of G.I. Joe” when the Real American Heroes do return to the big screen.
“The world has changed, and I think you’re going to see G.I. Joe changing with it,” said Davis. “There’s going to be a much more
