It seems as though Dwayne Johnson is finally getting a break in his production schedule fairly soon, which means G.I. Joe 3 is finally ready to get underway. While G.I. Joe Retaliation director Jon M. Chu dropped out to focus on other Hasbro property Jem and the Holograms (where is that trailer?), Eagle Eye director D.J. Caruso is stepping in. And according to Film Divider, he has some pretty interesting ideas for this upcoming sequel, including making the main villains Tomax and Xamot.
G.I. Joe 3 will reportedly be made up of old and new characters, though the only confirmed one to return is Dwayne Johnson's Roadblock. If this latest rumor is true, he will be going up against these two evil twins. Xamot and Tomax are known for leading the 'respectable" corporate face of Cobra, and are the founders, owners, and CEOs of Extensive Enterprises. When not engaged in terrorism, »
Aka Jessica Jones is shaping up to be a geek dream – firstly Marvel announced that Don’t Trust The B- In Appartment 23 star Krysten Ritter would be their latest comedy-star-to-hero casting gamble (in the title role), swiftly following-up with the news that David Tennant would play the villainous Purple Man.
As you might have guessed, she will play what’s been described as a ‘no-nonsense woman who could prove a powerful ally to Jessica.’ That’s if – minor plot point alert! – ‘Jessica doesn’t completely alienate her first.’ There aren't many clues there, but, as ever, the lack of a character name suggests she is someone significant in Marvel lore.

Moss plays a no-nonsense woman who could prove a powerful ally to Jessica...if Jessica doesn’t completely alienate her first.
Moss will star opposite Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), David Tennant (Kilgrave), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), and Rachael Taylor (Patricia “Trish” Walker) in the Netflix original series. “Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones” was developed by Executive Producer/Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg.
“Throughout her career, Carrie-Anne has embodied a wide range of characters in a compelling and relatable way and I have no doubt she will bring that talent to A.K.A. Jessica Jones.”

The two have been dating since 2014. No other details on the top-secret nuptials are known.
This is the first marriage for the Disturbia actress, and the second for Murray. Murray was previously married to his One Tree Hill co-star Sophia Bush, but their 2005 marriage only lasted five months.
Bush reflected on their short union on Watch What Happens Live! last January, and she didn't exactly have the kindest words.

The films of Alfred Hitchcock still provide rich pickings for modern filmmakers, in spite of the fact that the last full-on remake was Gus Van Sant's ill-advised take on Psycho. Thus, Michael Douglas vehicle A Perfect Murder went back to the Dial M For Murder source material, whilst the Shia Labeouf-headlined Disturbia was inspired by the wonderful Rear Window.
Next up then? It might just be Strangers On A Train. Warner Bros is trying to get a remake of the 1951 original together, and it's recruiting the team behind Gone Girl to do it. Thus, the studio wants novelist and screenwriter Gillian Flynn, star Ben Affleck and director David Fincher to take the job on.
The new version will be modernised (taking place in the middle of an Oscar campaign, »
Oh, "G.I. Joe 3," we forgot about you. In the realm of the ongoing franchises, it's one that audiences aren't in a big hurry to see another entry from. Still, the movie did good business overseas, even if ultimately it only grossed $375 million worldwide, which is pretty lowball in today's blockbuster world. But it's enough that another movie is in the works, and it looks like a director has been found. D.J. Caruso ("Eagle Eye," "Disturbia") is in "early discussions" for the job, and he's a pretty uninspired and somewhat safe choice. He can do big scale spectacle effectively, if not memorably, but if Paramount needs a guy who will stick the script and just knock it out, we suppose he's as good as anyone else. Once he's locked down, then we can start worrying about plot and cast details. There's no release date yet for the film. [Deadline] Last summer, »

G.I. Joe 3: Director D.J. Caruso (Disturbia) is in "early discussions" to helm G.I. Joe 3. And it's no wonder: G.I. Joe: Retaliation earned more than $375 million at the worldwide box office in 2013. The third installment of the action franchise is expected to star Dwayne Johnson. [Deadline] Twin Peaks: David Lynch confirmed that Kyle MacLachlan will return as Agent Dale Cooper in the upcoming Showtime series Twin Peaks, sharing a photo of the actor in character. MacLachlan starred in the original TV show, and reprised his role in the prequel movie, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me. The new series will debut in 2016.

Paramount may have finally found a director for G.I. Joe 3. After G.I. Joe: Retaliation helmer Jon M. Chu jumped ship to make Jem and the Holograms for Blumhouse, the studio scrambled to find a replacement, with Casino Royale director Martin Campbell‘s name at one point ending up in the mix before he moved along. Now, though, Deadline is reporting that Disturbia director D.J. Caruso is in “early discussions” to take over the blockbuster franchise.
THR adds that, before a deal could be reached, Caruso would have to receive a stamp of approval from franchise star Dwayne Johnson, currently the only actor confirmed to return for the threequel. It makes sense that Ray Park’s Snake Eyes, Adrianne Palicki’s Lady Jaye, D.J. Cotrona’s Flint and Elodie Yung’s Jinx would all make appearances in G.I. Joe 3, but whether screenwriter Jonathan Lemkin will see fit to introduce »

Fans of the G.I. Joe films are probably still left wondering if a third entry into the lucrative toy film franchise is on the horizon. Well, after a bit of a dry period on news, it appears that this wayward ship of a third film may now be back on course with a new director. This could also mean a huge role for a certain member of the Joe team. After a game of musical chairs which saw the exit of last entry head Jon M. Chu for Jem and the Holograms, and failed negotiations with Martin Campbell, it looks like D.J. Caruso is set to take the helm of the Hasbro toy franchise film. Caruso, director of the 2004 Angelina Jolie vehicle Taking Lives, was also responsible for Shia Labeouf.s early hits Disturbia and Eagle Eye, the 2011 young adult "hot teens with superpowers" genre film, I Am »
D.J. Caruso In Talks For G.I. Joe 3. D.J. Caruso is currently in talks to direct the third installment in the G.I. Joe movie franchise. Caruso whose previous directorial work includes Disturbia and I Am Number Four was brought into negotiations after G.I. Joe Retaliation director Jon M. [...]

It’s not clear on which characters may return since most of them didn’t return for a sequel. However, it’s probably a safe bet that Dwayne Johnson will return as Roadblock.
Chu left last year to direct another animated cartoon-turn-action movie with “Jem and the Holograms.” Martin Campbell’s name mentioned mid-year, but it never went anywhere during the talks.

Paramount Pictures is pressing ahead with a third G.I. Joe movie, following the box office success of instalments one and two. But it must be hoping it can get a slightly better film out of the series this time around.
Part one was directed by Stephen Sommers, with the sequel helmed by Jon M Chu. And it was Chu who was initially its choice to return for a third movie as well. However, he's moved onto other projects, and so whilst Jonathan Lemkin has been working on a screenplay, G.I. Joe 3 has been missing a director.
Well, it might just have found one.
Deadline reports that D J Caruso is the new frontrunner. He's just finishing up work on The Disappointments Room due later this year. And his previous directorial outings have included I Am Number Four, »
Last we heard any news about G.I. Joe 3, the script was getting written by Jonathan Lemkin of Shooter fame, and G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu was going to return behind the camera. However, Chu decided to take on an adaptation of Jem and the Holograms, so now Paramount Pictures has been on the hunt for a new director. THR reports it's Disturbia, Eagle Eye and I Am Number Four director D.J. Caruso who is currently in talks to direct the film in the other major toy-based film franchise from the studio that also brought us Hasbro's Transformers to the big screen from producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. Caruso had quite a dud on his hands after I Am Number Four, and he's pretty much been in movie jail since then. He directed some kind of kid-centric drama called Standing Up in 2013, but since we've never heard of it until now, »

It's unclear which actors from the previous films would return, aside from Dwayne Johnson who is attached to reprise the role Roadblock. Both previous films in the franchise made of $300 million worldwide at the box-office.
