Writers Hired for G.I. Joe 3 and Enchanted 2

3 July 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Paramount Pictures is moving forward with their plans for a third G.I. Joe movie, and they've hired Jonathan Lemkin to write the script. According to Variety, the story will focus on Dwayne Johnson's character, Roadblock, who was introduced in G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Lemkin has previously worked on films such as Shooter with Mark Wahlberg, Devil's Advocate with Keanu Reeves, and Lethal Weapon 4. The studio is hoping to get the sequel into production in 2015 for a 2016 release. As big of a fan I am of the G.I. Joe franchise, the live-action movies that have been made sure have been a big letdown. This is one franchise I wouldn't mind seeing rebooted. 

In other news, Disney has decided to dust off their plans for an Enchanted sequel and move it into development. The studio has hired J. David Stem and David N. Weiss to take on the duties of writing the screenplay. »

'G.I. Joe 3' Set to Focus on Dwayne Johnson, Lands 'Shooter' Writer

2 July 2014 7:17 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Paramount Pictures already announced that a slew of sequels would arrive in 2016, and one of them was G.I. Joe 3, the next installment of one the studio's toy-based franchises. And now the film has a writer on board as Variety reports Shooter and Lethal Weapon 4 scribe Jonathan Lemkin has been hired to tackle the script. There's no details on the story, but the sequel is expected to focus on Roadblock, the character played by Dwayne Johnson who was added to G.I. Joe: Retaliation and made the follow-up so much better than the first. We just wish there was some way for Channing Tatum to come back from the dead. Adrianne Palicki is expected to come back along with most of the other cast from the sequel, but it doesn't sound like any official deals are in place just yet. Production won't even begin until the second quarter of 2015. Here's »

The Rock to be the Focus of Next G.I. Joe Movie as Paramount Hires New Writer

2 July 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The next instalment in the G.I. Joe franchise finally has a writer, with Jonathan Lemkin set to pen the third entry in the popular franchise. He recently wrote The Longest Night for Paramount and director Frank Marshall, and previous credits include Shooter, Devil’s Advocate and Lethal Weapon 4.

Jon Chu was at one point expected to return to direct after helming 2013′s G.I. Joe: Retaliation, the extremely successful sequel which grossed over $370 million worldwide.

However, he’s currently not attached to the movie, but with Paramount and Skydance hoping to begin shooting next year, they’ll likely find someone soon as they’re aiming for a 2016 release.

Most of the cast are set to return, with Variety naming Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Adrianne Palicki as being set. However, the site goes on to add that G.I. Joe 3 will focus on The Rock’s character Roadblock, who was »

A new writer is hired to knock G.I. Joe 3 into shape, as it's confirmed that The Rock will be the focus this time...

Jonathan Lemkin Tapped To Scribe G.I. Joe 3

1 July 2014 6:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After G.I. Joe: Retaliation scored at the box office and earned less scorn than its predecessor G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, a third installment was almost inevitable. And now that Skydance and Paramount have set G.I. Joe 3 for release in 2016, the studios are working on putting together a team for the tentpole. Today brings news that Lethal Weapon 4 scribe Jonathan Lemkin has been tapped to pen the screenplay.

Though most of Lemkin’s work has been on the small screen, with writing credits on series like Hill Street Blues and 21 Jump Street, the scribe previously penned The Devil’s Advocate and Shooter. Lemkin is also adapting survival drama The Longest Night from a GQ article of the same name for Frank Marshall to direct.

He’s certainly not experienced with the type of furious, effects-heavy action that will be employed for G.I. Joe 3, but the fact »

G.I. Joe 3 to be Written by Jonathan Lemkin

1 July 2014 6:38 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

News has been relatively quiet on Paramount's G.I. Joe 3 lately, but now that the studio has brought screenwriter Jonathan Lemkin on board to pen the script, things should start moving right along.  The last we heard from producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, they were in early talks with directors for the threequel and were negotiating with a writer to lock down the story.  Plot details are vague, but it's expected to center on Dwayne Johnson's character, Roadblock.  Adrianne Palicki and most of the cast of G.I. Joe: Retaliation are also expected to return.  Hit the jump for more on G.I. Joe 3. Variety reports that Lemkin has signed on to pen Paramount's G.I. Joe 3.  The screenwriter has previously worked with di Bonaventura on 2007's Shooter starring Mark Wahlberg, and the two crossed paths at Warner Bros. where Lemkin wrote Devil's Advocate and Lethal Weapon 4.  Now that a writer is in place, »

'G.I. Joe 3' Gets New Writer, Story Will Focus on Dwayne Johnson's Roadblock

1 July 2014 6:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As previously hinted at by producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, G.I. Joe 3 will focus primarily on Dwayne Johnson's character Roadblock in a script to be written by Jonathan Lemkin.

G.I. Joe 3 is set to hit theaters sometime in 2016, but its unclear if it will be a spring, summer or fall release. G.I. Joe Retaliation star Adrianne Palicki is expected to return as Lady Jaye, with other previous cast members also returning, though no other actors was mentioned by name. Its not believed that Channing Tatum will be making a return, though that has been discussed in the past. His Duke character was left for dead in the previous sequel, but his demise has never been confirmed.

Jonathan Lemkin is currently writing The Longest Night for Paramount, with G.I. Joe 3 marking his second feature deal with the studio. That movie is based on a GQ magazine article and »

G.I. Joe 3 Gets A Writer; Movie Will Focus On Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's 'Roadblock'

1 July 2014 4:47 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

According to Variety, Paramount and Skydance have chosen Jonathan Lemkin to write G.I. Joe 3 for a 2016 release. He's already written The Longest Night (which Frank Marshall is set to direct) for the studio, and past credits include Shooter, Devil's Advocate and Lethal Weapon 4. Jon Chu was at one point attached to return to direct G.I. Joe 3, but that isn't happening as of right now. The site goes on to reveal that Dwayne Johnson and Adrianne Palicki are expected to return with Lorenzo di Bonaventura and David Ellison producing. The focus will be on The Rock this time though, with Roadblock taking on an even larger role in proceedings. Production will likely begin in the second quarter of 2015, and after G.I. Joe: Retaliation took $370 million at the worldwide box office, they're obviously keen on establishing this as a new franchise. What do you guys think? »

A Chris Hemsworth 'Lethal Weapon' Reboot? It's a Possibility.

9 May 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

A new, juicy rumor has Aussie heartthrob Chris Hemsworth pegged as one of the leads in the long-gestated reboot of the "Lethal Weapon" franchise.

The Tracking Board reports that Hemsworth has been offered the starring role in the mysterious project -- which apparently has the working title of "Lionhunters" -- which seems to be a reboot/sequel hybrid. According to Tracking Board, "the recent version of the script centers on the desires of an older cop's son (presumably Riggs' [played by Mel Gibson]) and his wishes to join the police force."

Screen Rant notes that Gibson and Rene Russo's characters had a son at the end of 1998's "Lethal Weapon 4," which could pave the way for the scenario that Tracking Board is reporting.

In addition to Hemsworth, Justin Lin (the "Fast & Furious" franchise) is reportedly attached to direct, while screenwriter Will Beall will pen the screenplay. Shane Black, who wrote the 1987 original "Lethal Weapon, »

Hemsworth, Lin Rumored For "Lethal Weapon"

8 May 2014 9:26 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The wildest rumor in recent weeks goes to The Tracking Board which today reported that "Thor" star Chris Hemsworth has been offered a starring role in "Lionhunters," a proposed refresh of the "Lethal Weapon" franchise.

The report claims the story centers on the son of an older cop (likely Mel Gibson's Martin Riggs) who decides that he wants to join the police force. The idea reportedly leaves the door open for Gibson to return as Martin Riggs once again, albeit in a traditional father figure capacity.

The report also says Justin Lin ("Fast Five") is attached to direct, Joel Silver is producing, and Will Beall is working on the current version of the script. Shane Black, creator of the original characters, also reportedly has had input into what direction the sequel will take.

8 May 2014 2:58 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Chris Hemsworth has reportedly been offered a leading role in Warner Bros' reboot of the Lethal Weapon franchise.

The Thor: The Dark World star is being eyed for the action film, which will be overseen by original producer Joel Silver.

According to Tracking Board, the project is titled Lionhunters and falls between being a remake and a sequel to Lethal Weapon 4.

The storyline will supposedly revolve around the son of an older cop (thought to be Mel Gibson's character Riggs) and his desire to join the police force.

Fast & Furious director Justin Lin is attached to make the film, while Gangster Squad's Will Beall is working on the script.

It is unclear if original stars Gibson and Danny Glover, or director Richard Donner and screenwriter Shane Black, will have any involvement in the rebooted series.

Lethal Weapon debuted in cinemas in 1987 and spawned three sequels, the last »

Frank Marshall To Experience ‘The Longest Night’

21 April 2014 10:35 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Frank Marshall was the first producer whose name I ever learned. It was slapped across the back of so many of my VHS cases that it was impossible to ignore his name. Back To The Future, The Land Before Time, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and Hook all owe a producing credit of some kind to the man, not to mention his directorial work on two of my favourite childhood films, Congo and Arachnophobia. Marshall doesn’t dip into directing often and with Jurassic World and Assassin’S Creed on his producing list some may have thought he’d be a bit of a busy bunny over the next few years.

However, Marshall is going to fit in some directorial work in the form of The Longest Night, a true-life shipwreck drama based on a GQ article by Sean Flynn. Taking us back to Easter Sunday 2008, the film will follow a »

Frank Marshall To Tackle The Longest Night

21 April 2014 6:40 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though Frank Marshall usually wears the producer hat, with credits that range from the Bourne films to Indiana Jones, he does step behind the camera every so often. Granted, with credits like Eight Below and Congo under his belt, he’s definitely had better luck when someone else is at the helm. Despite this, Marshall is intent on trying his hand at directing once more and this time, THR reports that he’s chosen to adapt Sean Flynn’s 2008 GQ article, The Longest Night.

Based on a true story, the film will follow a shipwreck that involved an Alaskan trawler sinking in “frigid, 6,000-foot-deep waters.” 47 people were on board and in an extraordinary rescue operation, the Coast Guard was able to save 42 lives.

I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a pretty extraordinary story and it’s definitely something that would make for a compelling film, especially »

Frank Marshall to Direct Shipwreck Drama 'The Longest Night'

21 April 2014 1:34 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Frank Marshall has signed on to direct the shipwreck drama The Longest Night for Paramount Pictures, marking his first directorial project since Eight Below.

The project was set up through Conde Nast Entertainment, a company which launched specifically to develop stories from their magazines for movie and TV adaptations. This story is based on a December 2008 GQ article by Sean Flynn, which chronicles the true story of an Alaskan trawler, which sank in 6,000-foot deep waters on Easter Sunday in 2008. The ship went down 180 miles off the Alaskan coast, carrying 47 crew members, 42 of which were rescued by the Coast Guard, despite facing nearly insurmountable obstacles like 15-foot swells.

Jonathan Lemkin (Jonathan Lemkin, Lethal Weapon 4) wrote the adapted screenplay, with Frank Marshall also producing alongside Conde Nast's Dawn Ostroff and Jeremy Steckler. No production schedule was given.

Frank Marshall to Direct Again on 'Longest Night' Coast Guard Drama

21 April 2014 1:14 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Right now producer Frank Marshall has his hands full with Jurassic World, the latest sequel (which also seems to be sort of a reboot) in the Jurassic Park franchise launched by Steven Spielberg in 1993. Marshall has produced some of the biggest franchises of all time like Back to the Future and Raiders of the Lost Ark, and now he's looking to get back behind the camera as a director. The last time Marshall directed a film, it was Disney's Antarctic adventure Eight Below with the late Paul Walker in 2006, and before that, Congo in 1995. Now THR reports Marshall will direct a shipwreck drama called The Longest Night at Paramount. Lethal Weapon 4 writer Jonathan Lemkin scripted the film which is based on the article of the same name by Sean Flynn that appeared in a December 2008 issue of GQ, detailing a true-life Coast Guard rescue operation that unfolded on Easter »

Frank Marshall Directing The Longest Night

21 April 2014 12:11 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Though he’s more usually found working as one of the best-known producers in the film industry, Frank Marshall has occasionally stepped behind the camera to make his own projects, directing the likes of Eight Below, Arachnaphobia and Alive. He’ll channel the spirit of that real-life latter outing for a new project, shipwreck tale The Longest Night.Paramount has bought the rights to Sean Flynn’s 2008 GQ article, which chronicles a Coast Guard rescue operation that braved seemingly impossible odds. An Alaskan trawler sank on Easter Sunday of that year, pitching its 47-strong crew into frigid waters 6,000 feet deep and more than 180 miles from the shore. With 15-foot swells hampering their job, the Coast Guard team still managed to rescue 42 of the souls on the stricken boat.Jonathan Lemkin, who has written such films as Lethal Weapon 4 and Shooter, adapted the script, which Marshall will shoot assuming he »
