Deadline is reporting that Paramount and Skydance are developing a television series for Amazon Prime Video that will focus on G.I. Joe operative Lady Jaye expanding upon the franchise. They’ve hired Erik Oleson, who was the Season 3 showrunner of Netflix’s Daredevil series, to write and showrun the streaming project.
The character appeared in Jon M. Chu’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation (an upgrade from G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) and was previously played by John Wick actress Adrianne Palicki.
Paramount Pictures is rebooting the franchise with their upcoming film G.I. Joe: Snake Eyes with multiple new actors in key roles. In the origin film we’ll be seeing Henry Golding playing Snakes, Andrew Koji is Storm Shadow, Samara Weaving in the role of Scarlett, and Ursula Corbero is the the new Baroness. The assumption here would be that Lady Jaye would be getting a reboot and new actress as well.
A third G.I. Joe film has been in the works for ages now but when it will actually get made it’s a little unclear.
G.I. Joe is a Hasbro toyline that was rebranded with a cartoon series, animated film, and comic books published by Marvel Comics that led to two feature films with Snake Eyes set to reboot the franchise.
