"G.I. Joe: Retaliation" grossed an impressive $356 worldwide, so we were not surprised to learn that a third installment in the trilogy was in the works. Paramount has reportedly asked Jon M. Chu to return to helm the third film, which again is not shocking, considering how well he helped elevate the property to the next level.
The action heavy film was a fun hybrid of army and ninjas, and starred Channing Tatum, Adrianna Palicki, DJ Cotrona, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and Bruce Willis.
Before breaking into the big-leagues with a huge action blockbuster franchise like "G.I. Joe", Chu was busy with dance and music projects, including "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never" and "Step Up 3D". It looks like he certainly has an eye for capturing fast movements, colorful characters and a plethora of different action sequences.
Are you happy Chu is returning to helm "G.I. Joe 3"? Let us know in the comments section below!
