G.I. Joe Sequel is a Go, Yo! Aka a Writer is Hired to Write it.

18 Comments

According to Collider, a sequel to last year’s “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” is a go over at Paramount, and as a result a writer has been hired to weave gold out of the turd. Or at least, make it less stinky and clumpy. While the site isn’t surprised the sequel is moving forward, we are. The film was made for $175 million, and when you add in the P&A costs, it doesn’t seem as if the movie’s final $300-ish million return at the box office would have made a sequel a no-brainer. Of course, when you add in merchandising sales and DVDs, maybe there were a couple of million or two that put the film in the black, and in Hollywood, that’s good enough for a sequel.

No word on what the sequel will be called, or if any of the original cast and director Stephen Sommers would return.

Here’s a hint to the mysterious writer that has been hired to write sequel: unless part two is about Snake Eyes, don’t even bother. If I have to sit through another bad Marlon Wayans skit, or Channing Tatum trying to act, someone’s going to get hurt.

Dammit, why I always gotta get stuck with this lesser Wayan guy? I'm Channing Tatum, dammit!

    The movie wasn’t the greatest ever, but they made it kid friendly I think if they give the sequel a more of a DARK FEEL it will get older audience, hopefully they get rid of them stupid suits! But im looking forward to the sequel.

    [SCRIPT RELATED] Well I’m down….The more heads, the better, as far as the Flash Script goes. Anyone that’s down for the brainstorm. Hit me up at TeamCannon6@gmail.com. I haven’t really messed around with gmail but hopefully it has a group creation option and we can start putting down some ideas. I’m probably going to start doing some research on what was written by David Goyer, because from what I heard, It would have been fantastic. They didn’t go for it, so I don’t want to stray too close to what he turned in. Anyway, Hit me up and once I have everyone’s contacts, I’ll setup a group somewhere to iron it all out.

    [GI JOE RELATED] lol!
    I just got back from Target for the 6th week in a row and yes this could have been fixed in moments on amazon but I really want Resolute on Blu Ray. I didn’t really have a problem with GI Joe ROC because its what I expected from hollywood for a first installment, but every time i think of cobra commanders mask, i cant bring myself to buy the movie. I think the next one will be more like resolute because of the feedback they received.
