While GI Joe: The Rise Of Cobra was seen as a bit of a failure that many thought would doom he franchise before it started, the slightly belated follow-up, GI Joe: Retaliation, was better received (although to be honest, not massive more successful at the box office).
It was good enough to ensure a third film was put in development and now it may have found a director, as THR reports that Paramount and producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura are in talks with DJ Caruso to helm. Initially Jon M. Chu, who made Retaliation, was set to return, but he ended up stepping away, as did Martin Campbell, who was briefly in talks for the film.
Little is known about the plot or which characters might return, although previous suggestions have said they may be trying to find a way to bring Channing Tatum back, despite what happened in Retaliation. Hopefully we’ll know more soon.
