G.I. JOE 3 Receives the Greenlight

It has been reported that a sequel to "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" has been greenlit, which isn't that surprising, since the film racked up $132 million worldwide this weekend. That solid number made it the second largest opening in box office history over Easter weekend, just behind "Clash of the Titans", which made $61 million in 2010.

At this time, it is currently unknown if Director Jon M. Chu will be returning to helm the next installment. There has also been no word if the cast, including Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Bruce Willis, Adrianne Palicki, etc, will be reprising their roles. Paramount replaced director Stephen Sommers and 90% of the cast of "G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra", so it will be interesting to see if these box office numbers are strong enough to enable the roster to return.

On what the third film could entail, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura stated, "We haven’t spent any time considering what the next movie is. There are elements we’re really excited about. I’d like to do more ninja story."

Bonaventura also said that he would like to see more "basic character scenes" and "domesticated scenes" to keep it more grounded.

    This reply if for CMO175: Wow... I had to comment on your posting. The fact that you believe Batman vs. Superman would beat Captain America 3 strikes me as uninformed. Zack Snyder is a visual master... but his stories and pacing and color palate are truly lacking in the development process. Superman simply had no soul... the man and the movie. And the silly destruction of the city and the landscape IS out of character with what Superman is. How many people died as Superman himself crashed through buildings and caused explosions throughout the movie? Superman would NEVER allow that to happen, but Zack Snyder and his writer would... and did. And it was a boring, stupid mess. And he WILL bring that soulless idiocy to Batman vs. Superman. Captain America, on the other hand? Winter Soldier is the most exciting super hero movie since The Dark Knight. And I, a 55 year old long time comic book universe fan, WILL be in line for Captain America 3! I will have to be convinced -- a LOT -- to turn around and spend my money, and time, in a Zack Snyder Batman vs. Superman. Zack Snyder stole a bit of my soul -- and I hate him for it -- when he introduced zombies that can run down a car. If zombies existed, in a Zack Snyder universe, and they move FASTER than any human... then he has introduced a horror universe in which man has NO hope of survival! Mankind cannot survive in this universe where vicious zombies have the speed to overwhelm any human survival situation... and that vision kills the suspense in a zombie movie. Where is the hope? That does not exist in a Zack Snyder movie. That man is Sucker Punching all of us. I'm not taking it any more. There are too many other fan friendly directors of fantasy movies for me to follow. I only hope that Disney/Marvel will hire the same brother director team to direct Captain America 3. That will be a smart move, indeed. RLJ
