James Bobin To Helm An “Action Man” Movie

Director James Bobin (“The Muppets,” “Alice Through the Looking Glass”) has reportedly signed on to direct a film based on Hasbro’s “Action Man” toy line at Paramount Players.

Created in 1966 as an officially licensed knock-off of “G.I. Joe” for non-American markets, the creation has included standard soldiers, sailors, desert fighters, adventurers and even spacemen.

Simon Farnaby (“Paddington 2”) is writing the screenplay for the film adaptation.
