I hope we get a better script and a new director if and when they make a sequel. I think Antoine Fuqua (Tears of The Sun, Training Day) would be a good fit, if they take down a more conventionally militaristic path. The problem is there's only so far they can go before the sci-fi/cheesy factor kicks in.
If it goes ahead, I'd like a recast of Duke. I think a bunch of new characters would be awesome too. As much as I'd like to see some old favourites, I'd rather see new ones so they don't screw up anymore of the existing characters. Having said that, I would like to see Flint and Lady Jaye. If they decide to change lady Jaye to an Irish ranger that's okay. She did spend time in Ireland (studied at Trinity College on her filecard) but please please please make Flint a US Special Forces Warrant.
I understand the need to make the team global to sell it internationally but GI Joe is US WWII slang. If they wanted to make it global and accesssible to other countries with long histories of GI Joe (like the UK, Australia, India, Europe etc). I'd rather they had called it Action Force.
Btw, Sly Stallone is making a movie called 'The Expendables' which sounds like it's gonna kick all kinds of ass. It was originally meant to star every significant action star from the 80's-90's but a few people dropped out so in the end we get;
Terry Crews (replacing Forest Whittaker who replaced Wesley Snipes)
Dolph Lungren (who replaces Jean Claude Van Damme)
Bruce Wilis in a cameo
David Zayas (Angel from Dexter)
'Stone Cold' Steve Austin

I'm sorry, but what makes some of you think that these critically acclaimed, (sometimes) oscar-winning directors are going to be remotely interested in making a 2-hour long toy commercial?
If they're making a sequel to a movie, then they consider that movie a hit. If they consider the movie a hit, they're not going to replace everyone for the sequel and reboot the whole storyline. Some of you may as well be wishing for the moon.
Unless the rumors of conflict between Sommers and the studio were true, Sommers will be back if the sequel gets made. So will Channing Tatum (unfortunately) and the rest of the cast.
If Sommer does get replaced, it's going to be by someone that's on the same "level" or lower. No one besides some of us views G.I. Joe as serious drama or even serious military action.

Here's an article that puts this sequel talk into perspective. "In Development" is not the same thing as "green lit" and a sequel is not a sure thing yet.

it would go from worse to really bad.
if they can get a director who knows what they are doing in there, I might actually go see a sequel...

Eh they should just hire Chuck Norris to direct it. That should easily make it the highest grossing movie and sequel of all time. In fact, no other movie will ever come close to beating it because, as some say, Norris can't be beat.
Seriously though, it doesn't matter to me who directs it since I won't go see that one either.

Since when does Batman have more serious material than Gi Joe?!?!?!? its about the same.
I dont see why there cant be more of a "Minority report" type feel used for GI Joe. I hate it when idiots say that a grown man running around in a bat suit (Batman) is more realistic than a futuristic army (GI Joe) That is ridiculous!!!!!!
and minus Serpentor all of the GI Joe characters can be made beleivable. (say no to Serpentor!!!!!!)

don't you know that Stephen Sommers had to beat out that long list of top-notch directors to get this gig, it wasn't that nobody else wanted to make it.
