G. I. Joe 3 Filming To Begin Next Year
| || |
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."
