One of the movies that was better than expected, was G.I. Joe. I mean come on, everyone and their dog thought that movie was going to suck. It was, what it was, a good popcorn movie, tons of action and special effects.
We have now learned, G.I. Joe 2 has been green lit.
Collider.com gives us the scoop:
But thanks to some very reliable sources, I can report a screenwriter has been hired for G.I. Joe 2 (or whatever it’s going to be called) and Paramount is definitely moving forward with the project.
While I tried my best to find out who landed the writing gig, my sources wouldn’t budge.
I also wasn’t able to learn if Stephen Sommer’s is going to direct the sequel or if they’re bringing in fresh blood.
Of course the sequel is still in the early stages of development, but since a screenplay has been commissioned and if it turns out that everyone involved likes it, I’d imagine we’ll hear a lot more about this in the coming months. Also, all the actors from the first film were signed for sequels, so that should make the process a bit smoother.
We’ll have more on this story as we get it.
