Paramount Wants GREEN LANTERN Director To Helm G.I. JOE 3?

According to a source for Schmoes Know, Paramount and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura want Martin Campbell to direct the next G.I. Joe film. Martin is best known for directing Green Lantern and Casino Royale. Come voice your opinion.


 
A source for Schmoes Know has heard that Paramount and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura ("Transformers") want Martin Campbell to direct G.I. Joe 3. It's his if he wants it.

Campbell hasn't directed a film since 2011's Green Lantern. That's understable as it is one of the worst comic book movies of all-time, despite what anyone tries to tell you. A shining example of how woefully bad a comic book movie can be if you don't respect or even understand the source material. However, Casino Royale is perhaps the best James Bond film of all time. It introduced us to Daniel Craig as 007, making him an overnight star, and its grittier take on the character reenergized the multi-decade franchise. How in the world did Martin Campbell directa gem like Casino Royale and a stinker like Green Lantern? It is quite the enigma.

G.I. Joe 3 is currently being written by screenwriter Jonathan Lemkin, who has writing credits for Shooter, Devil's Advocate and Lethal Weapon 4. The plan is to start filming in 2015 and release it sometime in 2016. Only thing we know about the story is that it will focus on Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's 'Roadblock.'



In this sequel, the G.I. Joes are not only fighting their mortal enemy, Cobra, they are forced to contend with threats from within the government that jeopardize their very existence. The film stars D.J. Cotrona, Byung-hun Lee, Adrianne Palicki, Ray Park, Jonathan Pryce, RZA, Ray Stevenson, Channing Tatum with Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson. Directed by Jon M. Chu, and produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Brian Goldner, written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick based on Hasbro’s G.I. Joe® characters. On Blu-ray & DVD!
