Paramount sets release dates for a new G.I. Joe movie, Dungeons and Dragons, Micronauts

Paramount Pictures just announced a slew of dates for several toy-and-game-based movie adaptations, including a new G.I. Joe movie, Dungeons and DragonsMicronauts, and an untitled Hasbro film.

The news comes a month after Paramount and Hasbro, Inc. struck a deal to team up to produce and distribute content based on Hasbro brands. The two companies originally had a deal for just Transformers and G.I. Joe films, but this new deal gave them a chance to create even more properties, including new original stories.

Now Paramount has announced a slew of dates for new films related to this deal: a third G.I. Joe film will hit theaters on March 27, 2020; Micronauts will arrive October 16, 2020; Dungeons and Dragons will be released on July 23, 2021; and an Untitled Hasbro Film will soon follow on October 1, 2021.

Paramount already produced two G.I. Joe films: G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra in 2009, with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marlon Wayans, Channing Tatum, Dennis Quaid and Sienna Miller; and G.I. Joe: Retaliation in 2013, with Tatum, Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis. No word on how or if the new film will connect to these previous films.


Baby Driver star Ansel Elgort had been announced as attached to a new Dungeons and Dragons movie last year, but it’s unclear if that’s still the case. The new film will pull back the reigns from the idle rumors over at Warner Bros, note here in 2013.

Micronauts film, inspired by the science-fiction toyline of the same name, had been mentioned as part of the G.I. Joe shared universe, and in 2009 there were rumors that J.J. Abrams might produce a film based on the toys.
