Paramount has been searching for a director to take the reins on their upcoming action sequel G.I. Joe 3 since last June, when it was revealed that the previously-attached Jon M. Chu has parted ways with the project to take on Jem and the Holograms. Today, Deadline reports that D.J. Caruso is in early talks to take over as the director. While a deal has yet to be solidified, it's "all looking quite promising," according to the site.
We reported in November that Martin Campbell (Green Lantern, Casino Royale) was being eyed to take the helm, but a deal never materialized. Jonathan Lemkin (The Devil's Advocate, Lethal Weapon 4, Shooter) signed on to write the script back in July, which will center on the Roadblock character played by Dwayne Johnson in 2013's G.I.

The IMAX event is a good way to mobilize both newbies and longtime fans and to get both groups primed for this spring's new season. »
