GI Joe 3 Update - Jon Chu Out; Search For New Director On

Jon-Chu-Toy-Fair_1395434302 Collider recently talked with The Rock about GI Joe 3, which was delayed due to Jon Chu directing Jem and The Holograms first.

The Rock says:

Johnson: Yeah, yeah. Well, the idea is that we would start shooting G.I. Joe in January, in the first quarter of next year. That’s the idea. Look, I love Jon, and I think he did a great job. I get it. He had to go on and do something else. By the way, maybe…
Collider: He could still be done by then.
Johnson: Could be, right?
Collider: So do you guys have a Joe 3 director yet? Are you still looking?
Johnson: We’re still looking, yeah.


So while there is still a possibility of Chu returning to direct GI Joe 3, the search is on for a new director in the meantime. Do you want Chu to return? If not, who do you think would be a good director for GI Joe 3?

G.I. Joe 3 On Hold Jon M. Chu Will Direct Jem and the Holograms First

Jon-Chu-Toy-Fair G.I. Joe Retaliation director Jon M. Chu says G.I. Joe 3 is on-hold. The director recently took to Twitter and Facebook to chat about the film. One of the revelations was that Chu will make Jem and the Holograms before G.I. Joe 3 because that Joe script is “taking a little longer” than expected.

If this news does not tell the fan base what the future of G.I. Joe Toys looks like at retail "GRIM" over the next few years I don't know what will. Very sad news, and very deflating for the G.I. Joe Brand name as a whole.

Truly Outrageous!

Lee Byung-Hun Returns To G.I.Joe 3!

Lee-Byung-Hun Lee Byung-Hun, better known to some as the deadly Cobra Ninja Storm Shadow has confirmed once again that he will be returning for G.I.Joe 3! In an interview with the Korea Times, Lee shared the following. We've mirrored the conversation here -

Korean actor Lee Byung-hun will soon leave for Hollywood to star in the third installment of the “G.I. Joe” movie series. Lee’s agency, BH Entertainment, said Tuesday that he will go to the U.S. later this month after finishing his latest film “Hyupnyeo,” which ends shooting in early February.

His appearance in the third “G.I. Joe” movie is hardly news, since he was featured in the first two installments of the series. Yet, his part in the upcoming movie is expected to be bigger than his previous appearances, the agency said.

Despite a production cost of $175 million production, the first installment released in 2009 didn’t enjoy the commercial success expected in North America, taking in a disappointing $152 million in ticket sales. Yet, ticket sales in Asia were relatively strong, prompting some to credit Lee for its success in the region.

G. I. Joe 3 Filming To Begin Next Year

220px-Jon_M_Chu_2013 Merry Christmas Everyone! Here's a little Christmas Present for the Joe fans, especially the fans of G. I. Joe Live Action Movie Franchise.

Director Jon M Chu sat down with Coming Soon for a bit of a chat regarding G. I. Joe 3. Mr. Chu says that not only is the world building still coming together, but they have many surprises in store for the fans.

"I love being active in world-building, so we're working on "G.I. Joe 3" right now. We're designing tons of stuff, which takes a little bit, but to me, that's obviously where I like to push myself and where I want to be for a long time and get to know better...I'm excited to bring in new characters and fun things beyond Bruce and Dwayne that we're working on and some great villains, but we're forming those ideas now. I'm really excited - it's going to be a whole ‘nother level."

Regarding Channing Tatum's (Duke's) death, the director said:

"It all gets carried away again. They asked me about Channing and I don't know. You never know in these movies, and that's all I said, and suddenly it became "Channing Tatum might be back." To me, every possibility is open and we're writing the script right now and we're figuring everything out. It's an extremely low possibility when you kill somebody like that, it's pretty much it, but you never know with "G.I. Joe." We did that with Storm Shadow, too."

Though no release date is set for the movie, Mr. Chu says they're hoping to move into production next year.

"I think we're going to be shooting next year. We're pretty motivated to get that up."

Adrianne Palicki To Return As Lady Jaye In G.I.Joe 3!

Adrianne-Palicki---Hisstank According to The List and by extension IGN, Adrianne Palicki will reprise her role as Lady Jaye in the third installment of G.I.Joe!

The actress starred alongside Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson in the action blockbuster 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' earlier this year and she has confirmed that she will reprise her role as femme fatale Lady Jaye in a third film. When asked about the intensity of the scenes and filming, Adrianne stated -

"I think it's hard to find females who can do the action stuff and I think that when people see somebody ... there are only like three or four [actresses] who are in all that stuff, because it's like once people see that they can do it, they put them in a lot of things. So yes, I definitely get a lot of scripts for action films."

She added: "I love doing it. I love doing my own stunts. I'm one of those crazy people ... but it's a fine line because you don't want to get pigeon-holed. That's why I try to do comedies or even a little independent film, just to stay above board - to keep it real, and to keep me from getting injured once in a while! I'm 30 and I feel like I'm 57 years old!"

Is Channing Tatum Returning For G.I.Joe 3?

Channing-Tatum---Hisstank MTV recently sat down with director Jon Chu to discuss G.I.Joe 3. According to the article, Mr. Chu promises that fans can expect lots of fun surprises in the next installment of the franchise.

The article continues with Mr. Chu stating that he's taking it to another level with this one. G.I.Joe 3 will feature a mix of old favorites and exciting newcomers, Mr. Chu went o to say. Here's a brief taste of the article where Mr. Chu discusses characters that were believed to be dead and later came back -

"You never know," Chu teased. "Storm Shadow died in the first one and came back in the second one, and then other characters have died and never come back. The G.I. Joe world, the best thing about it is you never know who's coming back and who's not."

Let's not rule out the possibility of a time jump, either.



What's your take? Would you like to see Duke return for G.I.Joe 3? Would you prefer that any part he play be a flashback or would you rather move away from Duke all together? Sound off on the Hisstank.com Forums!

G.I. JOE 3 Screenwriter Updates His Progress

GIJoe-Falcon-Logo---Hisstank Mr. Rama Tampubolon from Rama's Screen recently had the chance to speak with Evan Daughtery, the screen writer for the upcoming G.I.Joe Movie, the 3rd release in the franchise. Mr. Daugherty is also working on upcoming blockbusters such as Divergent and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

So what does he have to say about G.I.Joe 3? Here's a brief snippet from the article -

When asked about Duke and whether he would have killed off the popular Joe in G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Daugherty stated, "Would I have killed off Duke? It’s hard to say, you never know what process that went through to make that film. I don’t know, it’s hard to say, because sometimes killing off a character might make for a dramatic story." In terms of the next installment, he added, "What I’ll say for this new movie, what we’re trying to do- what I”m trying to do [as] a fan of the original cartoon in particular and the comic book as well; the comics are somewhat different than the cartoon. We’re just really trying to make a totally a great G.I. Joe movie which to me is about a lot of action but like a lot of fun with a sort of hint of sci-fi, an exciting world you’ve never been to, etc. I’m excited about what the next G.I. JOE Movie can be.”

Mr. Daugherty appears excited for the next G.I.Joe film. What about you? After you've read the article in it's entirety, join us after the jump for discussion already in progress.
