Back in April of last year, we got news that Stephen Sommers was returning to direct a sequel of G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. While most of us just pushed that news away because of how the first one turn out, the only good news that we got out of it was that Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick were writing the script for the sequel.
Well folks, it seems that now Sommers will not be returning as the LA Times website reported this:
“Those who were on the fence about the filmmaker can unhook themselves: After reports this summer that Sommers would be returning to direct a planned sequel, it looks like he won’t be doing that after all. Two agents who represent other filmmakers have said they’d recently been approached about their clients coming on to helm the movie and were told that Sommers would not be getting behind the camera. Paramount declined to comment.”
Does this news give us hope that maybe the sequel will be much closer to G.I. Joe that we all know and love or do you think we’ll have another popcorn action movie where you’ll have to turn your brain off to enjoy? So with that, who would you like to direct the sequel and bring to life the script that is being written by the Zombieland writers.
