Let's get down to brass tacks. Paramount taps you for a GI Joe movie, but wants to hear your elevator pitch before signing a check. So many questions. Live action or animated? Continuation of an existing story, Sunbow cartoon, IDW comic, or Retaliation for examples or a totally new rebooted universe? What characters do you want to include and who are your priorities to cast in those roles? What is your plot, what story do you want to tell on screen?

The cartoons & movies have pretty much ruined the ARAH "mythos" for me, so I'd go straight-up Adventure Team:

Joe Colton (NOT Bruce Willis) is retired and running an outdoor adventures business with his old teammates where he takes clients on safaris, expeditions, mountain climbing excursions, etc.... He meets a mysterious woman with an ancient document pointing to mystical artifacts hidden in 5 different exotic locales and she enlists his help them... adventuring ensues.

IT'S A RACE ACROSS THE GLOBE AND AGAINST THE CLOCK WHEN AN EVIL CONSORTIUM STARTS WORKING AGAINST THE TEAM TO GET TO THE RELICS FIRST

Starring JoeCustoms' own Zombieguide as dead tourist #4.

After credits scene: something something Bulletman and the Intruders

With the way the world is today on the topic of energy, I think a live action version (more seriously done) of the BET portion of the GI Joe: The Movie could be good.

Opening scene: A scientist and his assistant, Mike Power, are working on a device to allow wireless transmission of energy to any point on the globe via a series of satellites and relay stations. During a test of an early prototype, the scientist is loading radioactive material in the micro-reactor used as a power source, when the heavy steel door of the lab is blown in, landing on Power's leg, mangling his arm, and knocking the scientist, still holding the material, into the beam of the BET. A team of red-clad soldiers rushes in, clearing out the lab and leaving Power and the scientist for dead, torching the lab. Power struggles to free himself, grabbing a jagged bit of metal and setting about severing his pinned leg. Power goes to aid his boss, but finds him dead, his skin a sickly green. Power hobbles out of the lab as the flames engulf it, missing the twitch of life in his former employer as his body blinks out of the room.

General Joe Colton and his Adventurers are called in to the scene. They patch up Power and begin the hunt for these mysterious, shadowy men in red -- these Red Shadows. A message is released to the world that threatens to use the BET as a weapon against any nation that does not yield to the Shadows. Can Colton and his team stop them in time?

Ends with a new island chain forming from an incident involving the BET, an errant shot from it, and an underwater volcano in the Pacific. Joe Colton is told he'll need to form up a new, larger, team of military specialists to take on this mysterious Cobra Commander character who has laid claim to the islands, along with his militia made up of former Red Shadows and various others. (Sets up for the next movie: "GI Joe: A Real American Hero")

Post-credits: the scientist, now calling himself Dr. Isotope, having become unhinged after the incident, issues a challenge to the now bionic Mike Power, threatening to unleash radioactive hell if he does not submit. (Sets up for a Super Adventure Team movie with Mike Power, Bullet Man, and others)

Total reboot

Existing OG14 team with a few 83 additions, including Duke. Are joined by a new set of Joes, Roadblock, Alpine, Bazooka, Dusty, Flint, Lady j and Shipwreck. Ensemble cast alla the Dirty dozen or seven samurai. We'll establish the Joes are a special unit fighting global terror etc. right off. Someone will comment, I was already doing that in my other unit, then Hawk will step up and say, "We are fighting enemy dug in deep. An enemy most of the world will never even know exists..."

Cobra, or rather Arbco will be a multinational corporation, with close ties to other multinational corporations Extensive Enterprises, Mars, and Broca. Each branch is complete with it's own private military contracting group. They have an extensive intelligence gathering operation. Right off the bat the joes are sent to a Broca complex in the greater Canadian north to investigate a large sophisticated machine. That will essentially be the weather dominator though it won't look like the cartoon version. The joes will uncover cobra as an organization, and their plans to control the worlds weather. They won't be able to stop the machine though, and when they leak Cobras info online, arbco sells it as a plan to fight global warming, they are just here to help....

Post credit scenes:
Scene 1. A rally in a quaint little midwest town where good old Americans are praising Cobra
Scene 2. An atoll in the gulf of mexico, with sinister implications.

I'd keep the tone light, the joes fun and likable, but it would take itself seriously. Pacing would be key and I'd establish what joe team members were up to all around the globe. Shooter would die saving the day to sate the blood lust required by hollywood, other joes would get hurt but keep fighting like in the early comic run.

Okay, so Duke is engaged to the Baroness, whose brother Rex becomes Cobra Commander. Snake-eyes' mask has lips but he doesn't speak. Hold on, we're just getting started. We get an Englishman to play a Scot because all foreign accents sound the same. G.I. Joe, A Real AMERICAN Hero has their base in Egypt under the pyramids or something. Trust me it'll look cool. Then, wait for it... Halfway through the movie we destroy the Eiffel Tower because _____ the French. This allows us to use some cool robot suits from another movie no one will let me make and leads to an undersea battle at the North Pole because it'll sell more toys. And we throw a Wayans brother in because he once played with a 12" G.I. Joe figure as a kid.

That's the dumbest f*@%ing thing I've ever heard of.

But on the plus side - at least Zombieguide isn't in it...

Island village is getting destroyed by invading force all are taken hostage for slave labor by order of bald captain in blue uniform, radios to tell command that the island is thiers pans up to ruins of shore side fortess. In a subcommittee hearing General Flagg (Bruce Campbell) is tasked to assemble a spec ops team of highly specialized but last chance troops to handle a looming threat. All cantidates are on the verge of court martial, disciplinary, medical or systemic dismissals. Cue recruiting montage! Sparks Hawk and Flagg approach Stalker and encounter investigator Provost about their disciplinary hearing over the beaten Prisoner incident that got Hawk demoted and Stalker detained, stalker suggests a pair of guys he served on lrrp. Senator leaving office is driven home, realizes route is different veiled introduction to baroness and her disguise. In hospital room Stalker talks to SnakeEyes about his falling out with tommy while outside Hawk voices concern over the psyche evals since his family's death that are about to have him discharged once his injuries are tended to. A brash intelligence lt. Intrrupts insiting to be included in the team, spurring interest in her knowledge of the team as well as Flagg's unknown threat has taken a senator and a name. The recovery physician states that his patient still requires an extended series of follow up care for his injuries, "well Doc, you're coming too." Sparks checks in with Flagg and says Delta and Shooter are already deployed and the others on the list are assembled at base. 87 movie homage has Hawk going down the line of Clutch, Breaker, Zap, rock n roll and Grunt ala Beachhead and the rawhides. Training montage and uniform gear montage codenames. Shooter scene observing slave workers controlled by collars and captain using controller fortifying defences and welling up supplies for invaders, notes Delta subduing and replacing random trooper. Sees senator arrive. Senator demands answers! "Anssssserssss?!? No no no I give commandsssss!" Geek pop cobra commander reveal. Addresses Maj Bludd "you have your ordersss." Cameo exit of maj bludd firefly scarface. Shooter radios back situation . Mission briefing, deployment. Invaders identified as cobra by sigils and flags. Spot incoming deployment chopper and fire on it, ruptured fuel tank forced bailout, scarlett stuck snakeyes saves, gets blasted by fuel. Second chopper is targeted and shooter rushes the captain commanding the gunning rig fight ensues, injured badly sets off ammo dump destroying gun and slave collar control. On ground others get ready to fight while doc patches up snakeyes, fearing that wounds are severe may never speak again. Pulls himself up, takes balaclava off stalkers belt and goggles from scarlett scortched green uniform is mostly ash and black. Stands up primes uzi and signals ok. Infiltrate and firefight.. everybody kickass.. no? YO JOE! Homage gijoe #1 cover Big fight hawk puches cc ala cap punching hitler. Senator saved weapon destroyed day saved! Troops with Escaping baroness see Delta's eyes. Closing montage of settling into pitt, flagg notes good job, loss of shooter and that while they where away two other cobra agents where apprehended by provost and a couple of other hopefuls. Bludd snears and mutters "target aquired" snear twists into crooked grin. Credit roll. Stinger: cc and baroness arrive at cobra citadel. Cc ranting about needing to be prepared for next time sits in throne, bodyguard in white takes his place at his side "shhhhow me what you have to offer"... Destro steps enters frame only seen from behind "as you wish" as thrown turns and screens display digital verions of arah blueprints of hiss standard laser rifles rattler asp and viper helmet.
