Director Jon M Chu will return for G.I. Joe 3.
After a nine-month delay and a major reworking, the second G.I. Joe film went on to gross $365 million (£233 million) worldwide.
There is no word yet on the plot of the third film, or which of the stars may be in line to reprise their roles.
G.I. Joe 3 was given the green light in April following the strong opening of Retaliation.

What did y’all think of GI Joe:Retaliation? I thought it was better than the first flick, but not as good as it could have been. It really shouldn’t be that hard to make a kick ass GI Joe movie, especially with Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis in the cast.
Oh well, maybe the third time will be the charm.
Retaliation earned $365 million worldwide, so a sequel is coming.
The news here is that director Jon M Chu has been asked to return for the sequel. There’s no date set. Hell, there’s not even a script or people to write it.
Also in the category of things we don’t know about GI Joe 3 is who from the cast of the previous films will be returning. I’m assuming Johnson, Willis and Ray Park will be back, as well as someone whose character is supposedly dead.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation wasn't a smart movie, but it was a fun one. Director Jon M. Chu perfectly utilized stars Dwayne Johnson, Bruce Willis, Ray Park and Byung-hun Lee and made the movie into 90 minutes of ninja action and general badassery. It was pretty much all that fans could really ask for from something as silly as G.I. Joe, and Paramount and MGM has apparently given proper recognition to the man who orchestrated its creation. Deadline has learned that the two studios are now working on a deal that would have Chu back to direct the third installment of the G.I Joe movie series. Unfortunately, however, the story makes no mention of any other details about the project. While there are likely contracts in place with some of the actors, at this stage we have no idea which characters will return. Given the popularity of Johnson one »

After the first film, and the release date for G.I. Joe: Retaliation getting pushed as far back as it did, my expectation for Jon Chu's film was as low as you can get. And maybe that is why I was able to enjoy the movie as good, dumb, fun, which it is. The film has grossed over $350 million at the worldwide box office, and Paramount is already planning a third film in the near future. Yo, Joe! Concept Art By Matthew R.

To list every single make-up creation that has ever wowed us would be a fruitless, never-ending task with new weird, wonderful and amazing works being introduced to movie audiences year after year. Narrowing down a list that vast to just a 100 or even 50 would require some movie magic in itself. So to narrow out the list with just 20 make-up creations required a bit of divine intervention and some restrictions.
In choosing these make-up creations, my criteria was that there must be the physical billed actor in the make-up and with little or no animatronics involved. I’m sure there will be a lot of debate and disagreement with my list because of this, but it’s only fair that the actor in make-up is given his or her fair share of the credit in bringing that character to life. After all, it’s the actor in make-up that has to »

G.I. Joe: Retaliation has been in UK cinemas for a little over week now and I’m only just getting round to my review. Why? Well I wanted to see the film a few times before putting anything down on (virtual) paper, as I wanted to make sure my first instincts were right. And they were… I’m disappointed.
I was expecting great things from G.I. Joe: Retaliation and maybe that’s the problem. As a huge fan of the original movie (I can safely say that amongst the movie bloggers I read and am acquainted with I am seriously in the minority when I say that) I was looking forward to what looked to be, »

Music From The Motion Picture
Music Composed by
G.I. Joe: Retaliation features the G.I. Joe Team coming into a conflict with Zartan, Storm Shadow and Firefly, all serving under the newly released Cobra Commander. Zartan (who is still impersonating the President of the United States) frames all G.I. Joe operatives as traitors to the United States, exterminating most of them and leaving a small group of survivors. Zartan and the Commander now have all the world leaders under Cobra’s control, with their advanced warheads aimed at innocent populaces around the world. Badly beaten, outnumbered and outgunned, the Joes make a desperate plan to overthrow Cobra Commander and take back the world, with their secret »

People in horror movies do the darndest things, don't they? We've all had a "Don't go in there, you idiot!" moment or twelve while watching fright flicks. Horror sure does bring out the stupids.
This counter-intuitive behavior makes it seem like these folks are handing over their lives on a silver platter, so in honor of this weekend's "Evil Dead" let's celebrate the good, the bad and the dumber-than-a-bag-of-hammers of the genre. Appropriately enough, our first entry comes from that franchise.
15. Ash, 'Army of Darkness' (1992)
Body Donor: Bruce Campbell
Iq Fail: Even in the semi-serious first "Evil Dead" Campbell's Ash was a few french fries short of a Happy Meal, but by this third entry he had devolved into hubris incarnate. His buffoonery lands him in the Middle Ages, where he's forced to do battle with skeletons raised after he misspoke three lousy words he was supposed »

With the action sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation shrugging off a nine-month delay and less-than-impressive reviews to amass a healthy $132 million opening at the global box office this past weekend, Paramount Pictures has wasted little time in giving the go-ahead for more adventures, with Variety reporting that the studio has said "Yo Joe!" to GI. Joe 3.
The Jon M. Chu-directed sequel - which features the likes of Dwayne Johnson (Fast & Furious 6), Bruce Willis (A Good Day to Die Hard) and Adrianne Palicki (Red Dawn) alongside G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra stars Channing Tatum, Ray Park and Lee Byung-hun - is already in the black, having been produced for $130 million. Retaliation now looks likely to go on to overtake the $303 million worldwide gross of its predecessor, which was released back in 2009.

G.I. Joe sequel tops global box office, boasting the year's no. 1 debut around the globe Here's definitive proof that audiences the world over have an insatiable thirst for Good Movies, Good Stories, and Good Acting: director Jon M. Chu's G.I. Joe: Retaliation, "2013's first blockbuster" in the words of distributor Paramount, opened with a remarkable $132 million at the worldwide box office -- the year's top weekend debut. (Pictured above in all their glory: six-packed D.J. Cotrona shirtless, Top Hunk Channing Tatum, and Big Bear Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock in the Magic Mike sequel, huh, in Gay I Joe -- er, in G.I. Joe: Retaliation) As found in The Hollywood Reporter, studio vice chairman Rob Moore remarked that the $130 million-budgeted action flick's 3D conversion and reshot sequences got it "to a great place," which helps to explain the film's international success. Said "great place" has a worse-than-mediocre 21% approval »

Let's go Joe! Feeling more like reboot than a sequel, G.I. Joe Retaliation stars Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock who takes command of the Real American Heroes after a set-up leaves many soldiers dead and the remaining on the run from their own country. Returning from the first film: Channing Tatum as Duke, masked butt-kicker Ray Park as Snake Eyes and Jonathan Pryce as the president. Newcomers Adrianne Palicki as Lady Jaye and D.J. Cotrona as Flint just follow orders. As a movie, Retaliation is popcorn fun, ditching Rise of the Cobra's misplaced serious tone for a more straightforward sense of honor and duty. Of course Roadblock gets a chance to return to his old stomping ground to get back to the basics! Why »

Joe: The Rise of Cobra, many liked to say it took them back to their childhood. In my mind that means they were taken back to the days of Osh-Kosh B'Gosh and when eating anything off the ground seemed plausible. By comparison, G.I. Joe: Retaliation will also take you back to your childhood, »

With G.I. Joe: Retaliation tracking an impressive $100 million + opening at the global box office this weekend, there's a good chance we'll be seeing further big-screen adventures for the Real American Heroes, but could that involve a crossover with Paramount Pictures' other big Hasbro property Transformers? According to producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura it's unlikely at this point in time, but he's not going as far as ruling it out entirely:
"I guess it's possible. At this moment I [would] resist it," di Bonaventura told CinemaBlend. "I don't know necessarily why, but I just think there's so much that's so rich in the mythologies that I don't think they need to draw from the other. I don't rule it out. It's not to say you couldn't do it well, but both these properties have such rich mythologies with so many characters, that you could [make] a lot of movies before you start running »
