G.I.JOE 3 gets Screenwriter

The GI JOE Update from Mania.com

G.I.Joe 3 was already a go mission. However, the film is lacking a director and a writer. Variety broke the exclusive news that Paramount has found their screenwriter for the third installment of the franchise. Jonathan Lemkin will penn the script for the studio. Lemkin also just signed another deal with Paramount to write The Longest Night with Frank Marshall slated to direct. It must be good to be Lemkin right now. 

The storyline for G.I.Joe 3  is currently unknown. Dwayne Johnson and Adrianne Palicki are currently attached to the project. We can probably count on Ray Park reprising his role as Snake Eyes as well.  

G.I.JOE 3 is scheduled to be released in 2016.

I would say do the Chuckles storyline from the ICW run, but let's face it Universal haved screwed Cobra up...

I would say can it and do a rebooted TV series!

Heard rumours this will be Snake Eyes - centric and will rely heavily on Hama's Marvel run which makes me happy.

 snake eyes centric? as In wolverine centric for the xmen movies? Just hope it doesnt go THAT way.

 I actually appreciated the last director, Jon Chu.  He was a fan of the series, the cartoon and the comic and honestly he stuck to the source material rather faithfully.  If he's not able to come back, I can only hope they find someone who is EQUALLY as much of a fan and don't take the film in a direction where it's not recongizably GI Joe(ie... the first one).

In my personal opinion that should scrap this whole project and start over. The first one was good I thought, only had some minor issues with it but over all I thought it was fun and done fairly well. Now the second? Geez where do I start? How do you kill ALL the JOEs but that rabble we were left with?? Seriously?

Let's just reboot now and save everyone the pain of 'Snake Eyes v all of COBRA' (aka GI JOE 3) PLEASE?

How bout we assume they killed minor Joes (green shirts) in part 2.  And start part 3 with actual Joes, that haven't had screen time yet.  Part one was worse then part 2. Hated Marlon Wayans, and those stupid exosuits.

Why bother??  to me this series has gone from really bad to a pathetic joke.. That last one was so bad that i only saw it last month and i already forgot about it!!  Please stop with this boring crap!!!
