 Director and writer assigned to "Action Man" movie
http://deadline.com/2018/02/action-man- ... 202282173/

Deadline has announced that James Bobin is set to direct a proposed Action Man movie to be written by Simon Farnaby.

Paramount Players Brian Robbin's led division is working on the concept.

It remains to be seen what kind of angle that the movie will take but with the director of the Muppets Most Wanted and Alice Through the Looking Glass working with a comedy actor/writer who has worked on both family fare like Paddington and dark comedy like Horror Histories and Quacks my guess is they are shooting for a kid oriented comedy with that kind of team at the helm.

The character in the short lived Action Man comic was an adventurous teen who befriended the Autobot Kup and found himself in the middle of the invasion by Dire Wraiths. He worked in concert with the GIJOE team to stop Baron Karza and VENOM's Miles Mayhem from accomplishing their evil goals.

So i wonder if this will directly tie in with the 2020 G.I.Joe movie, and will be the Action Man that gi joe fans recognize.

Action Man was supposed to be included in the very first GIJOE movie as a pal of Duke. Instead they rewrote the script so that "Rex" was a US Army team mate of Hauser.
I would be willing to say they would toss away most of any backstory, since US audiences, and presumably Chinese audiences, know little of the story anyway.
He will most likely be rebooted completely just like GIJOE will (presumably) be in 2020.

And since China owns most of Hollywood there will probably be no nationalism involved as well. :d'oh:
