"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." = new updated script/story-concept for the G.I.Joe Movie via IGN, which further "alienates" the property to our fondly-remembered childhood-memories, innit? (not saying tis good nor bad tho...)

"Although the new G.I. Joe team will be international in scope, don't expect Joe's British counterpart Action Man to be included after all. reports, "Looks like he will be gone, this new script is set to be 100% GI Joe, it will revolve around the characters we all grew up with fighting Cobra, Destro, the Baroness and Storm Shadow. When do they expect to have this new script ready? Six to eight weeks. Pre-production is expected to start by October-November and production to start early '08."

as far as im concerned, these are the bare
minimum-characters they should have in the movie:

*heh* ... but this parting shot from producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura
is the real kicker (for me):

"My experience with beloved properties is that characters, attitude and tone are even more important than plot. ... Paramount showed a great deal of confidence in Stephen's take, and our ability as producers to get this up and running for a February start. His passion for the characters and the world convinced the studio this was something they couldn't resist."

... woh boy ....
