Chris Hemsworth in Talks for G.I. Joe, Transformers Crossover Movie

By Movieguide® Contributor

THOR star Chris Hemsworth is in talks to star in a new toy-inspired movie.

The upcoming movie will be a crossover film of Hasbro’s iconic ’80s G.I. Joe and Transformers toys.

Deadline reported, “Upon finalizing the deal, this will put the Melrose Ave. lot back in business with Hemsworth who is already starring in Paramount Animation/Hasbro’s TRANSFORMERS ONE which hits theaters on Sept. 20, 2024. That movie was one of the highest-testing Paramount Animation titles ever.”

TRANSFORMERS: RISE OF THE BEASTS hinted at the upcoming crossover. Variety reported, “Anthony Ramos’ character Noah meets a shady government operative named Agent Burke, played HOUSE OF CARDS star Michael Kelly. He hands Noah a business card, after saving the world with the Autobots, and it’s revealed Burke works for the G.I. Joes, a special team of commandos.”

The film was a box office hit last summer, making $439 million, surpassing other summer films including INDIANA JONES AND THE DIAL OF DESTINY.

This movie will be the latest iteration of the toy-based movie craze.

After the release of BARBIE last year, viewers can expect to see more movies inspired by toys and childhood TV shows hit the big screen in the coming years. Variety reported, “Mattel, the company behind the iconic doll, is looking to capitalize on its cinematic success by developing dozens of movies based on its games and toys. Moviegoers can look forward to Barney, Bob the Builder and He-Man hitting the big screen in the not-so-distant future.”

Hemsworth is known for his roles in action movies such as AVENGERS, THOR and EXTRACTION. Most recently he starred in FURIOSA: A MAD MAX SAGA. In the upcoming TRANSFORMERS ONE, he plays the voice of the young Optimus Prime. The movie is set to release Sept. 20, 2024.
