The Zombieland Guys are Writing G.I. Joe Sequel Too?

14 Comments

Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are busy fellas in Hollywood nowadays. After writing the hit “Zombieland” (and gearing up a sequel), the duo have landed gigs on “Deadpool” and now the “G.I. Joe” sequel. With the first movie clearly setting up a follow-up sequel, including the “rise” of the Cobra terrorist organization led by Cobra Commander, a sequel will probably be even more action-packed and G.I. Joe vs. Cobra-ish. Here’s hoping a major character from the first movie doesn’t stay dead and Snake Eyes gets more screen time. And oh yeah, Scarlett and Snake Eyes, guys, NOT Scarlett and friggin’ Ripcord.

    Okay Nix was that a positive sounding article? Are you actually excited for a sequel. GOOD! LoL. Just drop the lips guys. As for the Scarlett/Snake Eyes thing. It’s great for the comics, but the reason they never played that angle up in the cartoon and stuck her with Duke is because as romantic and heartfelt as that relationship is, it wouldn’t do much on screen when one of the two can’t talk, and is fully covered so we can’t even see him emote with his face…unless they keep the lips and make him smile or frown *Shudders* I do think the Scarlett/Ripcord thing was a little wierd though. I hope these guys take things in a stronger direction, maybe watch some “G.I.Joe: Resolute,” and get some ideas. I say Gerard Butler, or Tom Jane as FLint, and Milla Jovoavich as Lady Jay. Ray Park unmasked as Tomax and Xamot, and the Dreadknocks as crazy tremor brother like mercs (Just not as over the top).

      Hey, romance with a guy who can’t talk is preferable to one with a Wayans brother. If nothing else, we would have been spared all the bad attempts at “comedy”.

        DIDn’t mind the humor…when it wasn’t him hitting on Scarlett or something. SOmeone’s got to have a sense of humor on the team. At least it’s not “Quick Kick’s” lame jokes and attempts at vaudville humor.

          Wait, what? There was “humor” in G.I. Joe? You lie.

            I meant attempts at humor. My bad. LoL, go watch “Resolute,” you’ll feel better. I always do. The Snake Eyes/Storm Shadow fight is sooo much better.

            Those lips are so damn irritating, on par with the Batnipples.

    @Ulik. THey’re infinitely worse. At least with the batnipples they kinda dissapeared into the suit. Those lips however. I really was waiting for him to scream at Ripcord “That’s my woman!!” LoL
