Briefly: Since being confirmed to return to direct another installment of the G.I. Joe movie franchise, Jon M. Chu has been hard at work finding a writer to come up with a script for the film. That search has ended with Chu choosing Snow White and the Huntsman writer Evan Daughtery.
Daughtery may not be a household name, but he is climbing up the ranks. Aside from writing Huntsman, the screenwriter has also penned the scripts for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot for Paramount and Platinum Dunes, the upcoming Divergent starring Shailene Woodley, and the De Niro/Travolta starring vehicle Killing Season.
Little is known about the third G.I. Joe film, but Lorenzo di Bonaventura stated that he did want to see more ninja story in the sequel.
While the first two films weren’t critical successes, they were financial ones. Both films grossed more than $300 million worldwide. So like it or not, we are getting another G.I. Joe.
