G.I. Joe The Rise of Cobra (2009)
G.I. Joe The Rise of Cobra is a 2009 Hollywood American military-science fictionaction-film based on the G.I. Joe toy franchise, with particular inspiration from the comic-book and cartoon series G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. The film is directed by Stephen Sommers, produced by Lorenzo-di-Bonaventura and co-written by Stuart Beattie, based on a 1998 screenplay by John Paul Kay. G.I. Joe features an ensemble cast based on the various characters of the franchise. The story follows two American soldiers, Duke and Ripcord, who join the G.I. Joe-Team after being attacked by Military Armaments Research Syndicate M.A.R.S troops. After leaked drafts of the script were criticized by fans, Larry-Hama, writer of the comic, was hired as creative-consultant, and rewrites were made.
