Snow White and the Huntsman writer will draft G.I. Joe 3

Sep. 10, 2013by:

After the global box office success of G.I. JOE: RETALIATION ($372 million), Paramount is moving forward with a third chapter in the adaptation of the toy line from Hasbro. While the third film will see the return of RETALIATION director Jon M. Chu, a brand new screenwriter will be tasked with the project.

SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN writer Evan Daugherty will work on G.I. JOE 3, taking over from ZOMBIELAND writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Daugherty has also worked on the Michael Bay-ified NINJA TURTLES as well as the Shailene Woodley movie DIVERGENT. There is no word on plot or returning characters despite rumors that the Baroness may come back.

I was not a big fan of G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA and felt marginally better about G.I. JOE: RETALIATION. The insane delay of moving the sequel almost an entire year for 3D post-conversion soured me on the project. There has been little consistency between the films in the franchise which makes it hard to commit to the films. G.I. JOE and TRANSFORMERS were both a big part of my childhood and I feel let down by their big screen incarnations.

G.I. JOE 3 has a chance to improve on the headway started in RETALIATION, but third films rarely instill confidence. Plus, SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN doesn't give me the warm and fuzzies either.

Cobra LALALALALA!

I'm all for another. Maybe Serpentor? Sgt Slaughter? The Fridge? Asking too much, I guess. Not for Willis, to be in again, I really like the guy, but too ubiquitous. Don't need to cameo in everything.
I'd like to see Chuckles,( though seeing Brad Cooper in A Team was close to it).

I enjoyed G.I. Joe Retaliation, I think Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick did a decent job balancing out the silliness with the more conventional action movie aspects of it. Evan Daugherty certainly got the short shrift with Killing Season - it doesn't seem like it was a terrible script; Travolta went and ruined everything and Kovacs wasn't scary for a half second. Snow White and the Huntsman was, to my surprise, not bad at all - apart from Kristen Stewart, that is.

I like the first G.I. Joe but the second movie was so bad. Hopefully the third movie will be a big improvement.

Both were bad.

But at least the first one was dumb fun, the second was just dumb. Retaliation was pretty forgettable.

While I didn't absolutely hate Snow White & the Huntsman, I didn't like it that much & part of it was because of the script. Surprisingly, I didn't even hate Kirsten Stewart's performance.

And the challenge will be...

... can he write something even more boring than Snow White and the Huntsman ? I almost fell asleep watching Kristen Stewart exploring,contemplating,being lost in the woods.

First one was way over the top stupid, the second one was not much better so I really don't care about a third one
