'Zombieland' writers will be penning 'G.I. Joe 2'. Excited?

01.07.2010

UPDATE: According to IESB, ZOMBIELAND writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are writing the JOE sequel. Now are you excited?

Whether you loved it or hated it, the sequel to G.I. JOE looks to be on it's way.

Very reliable sources for Collider say that a screenwriter has been hired to pen the next script. When it came to asking for the name of that person, the source wouldn't give it up. They also didn't find out if Stephen Sommers would be returning, or if they would be getting someone new.

This is not much a surprise. Back in August, Paramount's chairman, Rob Moore told the L.A. Times that a sequel would soon go into development. Nearly 6 months later, here we are. Right now, the project is in early development, but I'm sure if a script is decent we will see more soon enough.

It's too early to really decide how the project will turn out. If the right script writer comes in along with a good director (Sommers or not), it might have a fighting chance. The fact is that people went to see the first movie. Those same people also said that while JOE wasn't a classic, it was fun. So we shall see. What do you guys think?

Extra Tidbit: I used to have one of these. I stole it from my Cousin. He still has no clue...until now anyway. Sorry man, Barbie got lonely!

wasn't there talk of stephen sommers almost getting fired during post-production? if that was the case, i'm guessing he won't be back. also, i wouldn't call the first one a success by any means. lousy films which underformed financially.

happy dance, doin' the happy dance...

Let's face it, 'Joe wasn't Citizen Kane. But, in spite of the bad press (and maybe because of it leading to low expectations) I had a blast with it... especially with beer. Bring on the sequel and don't worry so much about precious 'Joe fanboys because (no disrespect) if you changed the title to "Megaforce - the remake" then 'Joe would've been lauded as a happily stupid 1 hour & 58 minutes of your life.
So bring it on, with Sommers, and enjoy another "brain off/beer on" movie.

Now Fix some stuff!

This is an opportunity to fix some stuff! Fix Cobra Commander, make the Baroness evil again, Shoot Stephen Sommers in the head! Simple things really. Just make a live action version of the Mass Device, and keep it true to the comic, and all will be well.

IMO, between TF:RoTF and G.I. Joe...

TF2 made G.I. Joe look like The Godfather.

So I don't mind a sequel.

I actually wouldn't mind a sequel, as long as Joseph Gordon-Levitt remains Cobra Commander I'm happy.

ROFL "If the script is decent"

If that was the case, there wouldn't have been the first movie.

It's not about what I think is decent, obviously. It's whatever passes as decent for them.

For a mindless action flick, I enjoyed the first. However, after Transformers 2 anything would look good.

I waited to Redbox the first one...

and even that wasn't worth it. $1 and two hours down the drain. I'm not optimistic about another.

RECAST just about everyone...including the director. Actually G.I. Joe 2 should just remake the original one, kind of like what the Hulk franchise did.

NO JOE!

The first one was viewed by people for curiosity. That was quickly destroyed and there is no reason for a sequel. This will flop pretty darn badly I'm guessing.

The first 15 minutes of the original made me return the blu-ray to NetFlix and I never thought about it again. Channing Tatum was a nuclear explosion of terrible.. I can't believe theres even 1 positive comment on this article.

If you fire the entire cast and completely reboot it in a 180 degree angle of difference then maybe I'd think about giving it a chance.

Ehhh...

Whoever decided that that BS origin and resolution to the Snake Eyes/Stormshadow conflict was better than the comic story should be fired and also congradulated for curing me of my stupid obsession with buying into remakes of crap I liked when I was 12.
Eff you Gi Joe.

I can't believe so many of you thought GI Joe was a good film. Internet film geeks bitch and moan about the unoriginal garbage spewing out of Hollywood. Want it to stop? I don't know, maybe stop going to see shit and stop enjoying shit.

that's because internet film geeks are the farthest thing form rational and are the last voice anyone should listen to in regards to quality. not saying G.I. Joe was quality, but the internet film geeks not thinking it was shouldn't influence anyone's decision to make a sequel.

I'm not at all surprised. G.I. Joe made money, despite being mostly cheese. I'll probably end up seeing the second one, as well, just like I did with Transformers. Hopefully it's not nearly as bad as Revenge of the Fallen...

I am Fanboy of Transformers always have been, and I will honestly say it was pure shit! Some fanboys just need to admit when something the grew up on and love is turned to utter garbage. GI Joe was also crap, but I enjoyed it a hell of a lot more than ROTF!

G.I. Joe was an incredibly stupid movie

But so, so entertaining. Nothing more, nothing less. I'm all for a sequel, but hopefully it's better than the first.

I completely agree. It's funny how much hate G.I. Joe and Transformers gets on here. They're both summer popcorn/blockbuster movies based off of toys and cartoons, you can't expect them to be Oscar caliber movies.

Well I personally hated Transformers 2 because it took itself way too seriously and it was way too long.

I loved G.I Joe. It reminded me of when I was a kid watching the catoon series. There are tons of new characters and plots they could introduce, so I say go for it!

Ugh! Another crappy sequel to a crappy movie! This movie sucked on so many levels, and the icing on the shit tasting cake that they call GI Joe, was the use of Black Eyed Peas' "Boom Boom Pow" in the closing credits!!! WTF?!?!?!
