New characters, a new director, and Dwayne Johnson. Here's the current state of G.I. Joe 3...
Paramount has already earmarked a third G.I. Joe movie for release in 2016, and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura is one of those tasked with the job of making it happen. There's already been something of a spanner in the works, after director Jon M Chu - who helmed G.I. Joe: Retaliation - left the project early in development.
di Bonaventura, chatting to Collider, confirmed that early chats with potential new directors have begun. But the priority? "We're negotiating with a writer right now, and once we close that deal - which should be any moment - then we'll have a story locked down".
The film's planned start date of January 2015 isn't going to happen though. "We are trying to get going, starting early next year", the producer admitted. "I think February or March is probably more realistic. »
