GI Joe 2 soon?

Aug. 10, 2009by: Mike Sampson

Before GI JOE was even released, many of us around the web were already talking about a sequel. While GI JOE 2 may have seemed an obvious decision, these days sequels are hardly a sure thing (see SUPERMAN RETURNS). But Paramount is happy enough with GI JOE that they're ready to move forward on PART 2. Rob Moore, the studio's vice chairman, told the LA Times that the JOE sequel will "soon go into development" and that all the lead actors are "contractually obligated to return." He did add that director Stephen Sommers has the option to decline a sequel though.

While the old cast returning is obviously good news (especially for those of us who gets a tingly sensation when we see Rachel Nichols in tight leather), we're obviously all looking forward to what new things we'll see in GI JOE 2. Will Cobra Commander adopt a more familiar uniform? Will Baroness and Scarlett finally get it on? What's this about pork chop sandwiches?? And the question on most of our minds, what new characters will join the Joes?

Lets get it goin' !

BUT..... dont rush the script. If everyone is coming back, lets play with their characters a little. And as previously mentioned, some new Joe's. It was a entertaining movie.

G.I. JOE 2

I think Stephen Sommers should return and direct the sequel, I don't think he'll reject the making a second film, he probably has a bunch of cool ideas for the sequel.

bring it on!

It's stated by gen Hawk that the current team is the ALPHA team. So expect to see a BRAVO team with more JOES. Also expect to see more of ZARTAN'S master plan, a more pissed-off resurrected STORM SHADOW, FIREFLY the Cobra saboteur, and possibly MAJOR BLUDD and more DR. MINDBENDER.

Absolutely read my mind about Rachel Nichols, Mike!

And I'm down for a sequel. Come on Paramount, get moving on the sequels to your amazing tentpoles this year. GIJ2, TF3, Star Trek 2....

I'm down for more Joe movies, it was a fun ride. I just want to see a larger roster of known Joes.

I just wanna say, as far as the sequels-aren't-a-sure-thing goes, "Superman Returns" is quite possibly the worst example to use as it was a "sequel" to a movie released more than twenty years earlier.

HoyleHaw - I'm pretty sure the author meant they haven't begun a sequel to Superman Returns yet...not that Superman Returns being a sequel to Superman 2 - 20 years ago.

The first was all good fun and couldn't be taken seriously. I welcome this sequel a lot more than another Transformers. Hopefully CC gets rid of that stupid costume and he keeps the voice he had during the Doctor scenes. I don't expect a better storyline, but it should be interesting to see the introduction of new Joes and members of Cobra.

I'm all for a new G.I. Joe movie with a completely new cast, new screenwriters, and no Stephen Sommers. Also an entirely new CGI team.

Awesome!

'Cause one mediocre/shitty G.I.JOE movie wasn't enough. I'll add this to my Fantastic Four collection. Fun!

making a dark G.I. Joe movie is a far worse idea than making a Joe movie for kids. the problem with this movie wasn't that it was silly or for kids, it was that it was simply poorly directed and edited and had zero dramatic tension. one of the best aspects of it is Dennis Quaid's absolutely cartoonish portrayal of an action figure. it was great, he was an actor acting like a toy, which is spot on in a movie that is about toys.

no thank you

Stephen Sommers is the main reason I'm staying away from the first one. He's got to be my least favorite director of all time. If he chooses not to come back for part 2 then maybe, just maybe, i might check it out. If someone pays for me.

I thought this movie was awful. I hate the comparisons between this and transformers and ppl saying transformers 2 blew. Just by the production quality of transformers alone, I enjoyed it more. GI JOE was horrible all over.

Blah blah movie based on toys blah blah. It was very possible to make a dark gi joe film but instead they opted to make a film that was meant for children.

I gave this movie a chance. I totally forgot about the negative and then I heard the good reviews and im

NO. It wasn't.

And for the people that enjoyed it..what the fuck did you possibly enjoy? The phantom menace like action? The wooden acting skills? The plot? The disgusting cgi?

After exiting the movie, I asked my only friend who said it was mad good, what he liked about it and his answer, "I dont know".

Ill give the movie one thing..that suit chase scene was cool.
