If you’re a fan of a few 1980s toy brands and their cartoons, a new movie deal revealed Tuesday should spark added interest in those collectible toys.
Paramount Pictures and Hasbro have agreed to create films for five properties all as part of one movie universe — MASK, G.I. Joe, Micronauts, Visionaries and ROM.
“Paramount and Hasbro have had a longstanding relationship and we’re proud of the success we’ve enjoyed on the Transformers and G.I. Joe franchises,” said Brad Grey, Chairman and CEO of Paramount Pictures in a prepared statement. “We’re excited to grow our agreement and make even more movies based upon these popular and powerful Hasbro characters and their worlds.”
