"G.I. Joe 3" Gets Twins And Trakker?

The Cobra Command twins Tomax and Xamot, and "M.A.S.K." leader Matt Trakker, are all rumored as characters in G.I. Joe 3 for Hasbro and Paramount says Film Divider.

Tomax and Xamot, aka. the Crimson Twins, featured in both the cartoon and the comic books as the co-leaders of Cobra's elite troops. They are pegged as the villains in the new film, with one actor said to be sought for both roles.

Trakker comes from Kenner toys "M.A.S.K. " line, which Hasbro purchased. Tracker even got his own G.I. Joe action figure at one point.

Disturbia  and I Am Number Four helmer  D.J. Caruso is tipped to direct the film.

"Casino Royale" and "Green Lantern" director Martin Campbell was first in line for the job last year after Jon M. Chu left to call action on the upcoming live-action film version of the classic 1980s cartoon and toys "Jem and the Holograms"

The new film will center on "The Rock" Dwayne Johnson’s character Roadblock. Adrianne Palicki is also expected to reprise her role as Lady Jaye. 

Jonathan Lemkin ("Shooter," "Devil's Advocate") has been hired to take over the scripting duties from  Snow White and the Huntsman writer Evan Daugherty who previously worked on the script.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Brian Goldner are producing.the latest installment.
