Jon Chu has been chosen to direct G.I. Joe 2. Yup, that’s right, the guy who just made a ton of money for Paramount directing the Bieber movie, has been chosen by the studio to direct G.I. Joe 2. As for cast members, apparently no one is signed on yet but the studio will likely go after Channing Tatum first. I wouldn’t be surprised if most of the cast returned. The first film made a cool $300 million and I’m sure this one will follow in the same path.
G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra wasn’t a good film, by any means. But it did provide enough mindless action to make it worth the price of admission, or so I thought. Put it this way, I’ve seen worse. With Chu behind the camera for the sequel, I don’t have any false hopes. I realize it will be worse or equal to the first. Will it still pull in a ton of money? You bet!
