Exclusive: G.I. JOE SEQUEL is Happening; Zombieland’s Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick Writing G.I. JOE 2
G.I. JOOOOOOEEEEE (2)!! -- Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.
While some didnít think much of director Stephen Sommers G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, I had a blast watching the cartoon come to life, because thatís what it was. Nothing more, nothing less. And the people that understood that, well, they had a blast watching all their favorite characters on the big screen.
And even though some might think the film wasnít profitable, the fact is The Rise of Cobra made over $300 million at the worldwide box office and Iím sure it helped to sell a lot of toys. What Iím trying to say is, this film made people money, and when that happens, you get sequels!
More after the jumpÖincluding a MAJOR UPDATE:
Back in August, we reported Paramountís Vice Chairman Rob Moore said a sequel would soon go into development. Since that time, the studio has provided no updates for fans.
But thanks to some very reliable sources, I can report a screenwriter has been hired for G.I. Joe 2 (or whatever itís 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 wouldnít budge.
I also wasnít able to learn if Stephen Sommerís is going to direct the sequel or if theyíre 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, Iíd imagine weíll 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.
As I said last night, a writer has been hired for G.I. Joe 2. What I didnít know wasÖI should have said WRITERS. Thanks to a great source, I can report Zombielandís Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are writing the sequel to G.I. Joe! This is on top of the recently announced news that theyíre writing Deadpool for 20th Century Fox.
While I donít know how long theyíve been on either project, as a huge fan of Zombieland, Iím really excited theyíre on Joe.
As always, more as we get it.
