Back in August it was reported that the film would be getting a sequel, but nothing has been heard since then.
Well, Collider got an exclusive tip from an anonymous person that the planned sequel IS happening, and it has a screenwriter.
Thanks to Collider:
“But thanks to some very reliable sources, I can report a screenwriter has been hired for G.I. Joe 2 (or whatever it’s going to be called) and Paramount is definitely moving forward with the project.”
Unfortunately, the writer’s name wasn’t given, nor was there any news on whether Summers would direct the film.
I’m willing to give the sequel a chance, but I won’t be to excited for it.
And, hopefully Levitt will reprise his role, unless he gets cast as The Joker for Batman 3(just hopeful speculation).
Update: According to IESB the two writers from “Zombieland” are writing the script and that Summers WILL direct:
“IESB has exclusively learned that not only are these two writing the script for the Merc with the Mouth, they’ve also just been handed the sequel to G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA that hit theaters this past August with Stephen Sommers at the helm.”
Are you ready for another G.I. Joe film?
