It looks as if the gamble of restarting the G.I. Joe movie franchise paid off. Well that and delaying the film for another year for Tatum reshoots. Paramount and MGM are now cutting a deal with Jon M. Chu to helm the third installment of the G.I. Joe franchise. Chu’s sequel, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, arrived last March and grossed $365 million globally. So despite Chu only being known for directing Justin Bieber’s Never Say Never he restarted a seemingly dead franchise. It’s a good gamble to give him a second shot at another Joe film.
No release date or casting information has been set for the third G.I. Joe film.
