Default GI Joe ROC Sequel Talk

Zombieland duo to write G.I. Joe sequel as well as Deadpool
By David Bentley on Jan 8, 10 12:07 AM



JUST the other day we learned that Zombieland screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick will be working on the X-Men spin-off Deadpool - and now comes the news that they will also be penning Paramount's sequel to G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.

Collider and IESB both reveal the duo have been hired but there is, as yet, no indication that Stephen Sommers will be back to direct G.I. Joe 2.

The sequel was announced by Paramount last August and while all the main cast are contracted to return, Sommers isn't. His official website makes no mention of involvement in the next film.

The first film, made for $175million, earned $301million globally. Written by Stuart Beattie, David Elliot and Paul Lovett, its cast included Christopher Eccleston, Channing Tatum, Sienna Miller, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dennis Quaid, Ray Park and Rachel Nichols.

G.I. Joe is a line of American military action figures made by toy firm Hasbro and marketed in the UK as Action Man and Action Force. The toys were also adapted into comics, on which the film was largely based, and animated series.

The Zombieland guys are doing a lot, aren't thay? GI Joe 2? Zombieland 2...Deadpool, apparently, and Venom.

Well, I really didn't care for the 1st GI Joe, so even with them at the helm, I can't foresee myself watching the sequel.

G.I. Joe' Sequel to Be Faithful to the First Film
February 18, 2010 02:39:34 GMT



Promising that they will not ignore events from 'G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra', scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick share that they will also introduce new characters in the sequel.


It has been reported before that Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have signed a deal to write the script for "G.I. Joe 2". Recently, the two had an interview with MTV to talk about what they are going to do with the upcoming film, promising that they will still be on the line of "G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra".

"We can say that we will be faithful to the first film. We will not be ignoring events from the first in the second," Reese stated. Wernick then added, "It will be a sequel. It will be a continuation of 'G.I. Joe' [as it was established last summer]."

The screenwriting duo moreover revealed that they will use more characters from the toy line in the next movie as Reese shared, "We'll be introducing some new characters." His partner then further explained, "We're going out to Pawtucket, Rhode Island to the Hasbro headquarters next week. [We'll] talk to the toy guys, take a tour of the facility, see all the old toys, the new toys and just get inspired."

Though they are excited with the project, Reese and Wernick actually feel a little pressure about making this second installment of "G.I. Joe" film franchise. "It's hard to think of it being any bigger," Reese told MTV, before commenting on the first film "that was a big movie. They blew up a lot of stuff. We hope for it to be as fun, that the characters really pop."

Beside tapping the writers, Paramount Pictures has hired director of "G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra" Stephen Sommers to return to the directing position for "G.I. Joe 2". Meanwhile, the original cast members, such as Channing Tatum and Sienna Miller, are expected to reprise their roles as they reportedly have signed on for the sequel

EXCLUSIVE: Will 'G.I. Joe' Crimson Twins Tomax & Xamot Appear In The Sequel?
We Ask The Writers!
Posted 2/19/10 2:30 pm ET by Adam Rosenberg



It maybe wasn't a landmark work of filmmaking, but last summer's "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" was one helluva good time. Fans of the cartoon series were left wanting, but in a good way. The "Rise of Cobra" title should be taken quite literally; it's not until the end that the dastardly terrorist organization lays down its roots.

It was a smart move, setting up the sequel in this way. Serious "Joe" fans are already invested in the follow-up, if only to see how Cobra is finally represented now that they're fully formed. And with that investment comes the questions. Which vehicles will we see? Which characters? MTV's Larry Carroll asked about one in particular -- really, two -- when he spoke to writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese a few weeks ago: Cobra twins Tomax and Xamot.


Oh yeah, well--" Reese said, catching himself before continuing, "... okay, maybe." Both writers then laugh. A little too hard. Interesting.

"I can't say," Reese continued. "You may have just read it off my face but I can't say." A pause. "Can't say."

Larry, a fan of the twins and unwilling to simply let it go, explains that these characters are the sort of thing that could be great if done right, or really stupid if done wrong. For those who aren't familiar, Tomax and Xamot -- Cobra's Crimson Twins -- have the ability to communicate telepathically. Each also feels the other's pain. You could see where things might get funky with characters like these in a live action film.

"It could be a disaster," Reese agreed. That's when the bomb drops, the closest we get to confirmation that the duo will at least be attempted; Wernick adds "We hope to do it right."

It's not confirmation, but it's damn encouraging. These guys are fans. They get it. If they think Tomax and Xamot will work, I'm willing to buy it. "Rise of Cobra" was solid; I'm expecting this sequel to compare with its predecessor in the same way that "X2: X-Men United" compares with "X-Men."

Do you want to see Tomax and Xamot in the sequel? What other "Joe" characters do you hope to see featured?

Indirect confirmation? Perhaps.

Director Jon Chu Talks G. I. Joe 2
Posted on 04-14-2011 at 09:33 AM by BCYOJOE



The Deadbolt had a chat with G. I. Joe 2 director Jon Chu about what we can expect from the sequel.

"Well, for Joe, I grew up playing with G.I. Joes and watching Joe and reading the comics of Joe. It means so much to me. To me, itís one of the few brands that has a soul, a multi-generational soul, where itís about what it means to be a leader in the community, in your home, with your friends, and what it means to be a leader and a hero. I think thatís an important message right now in the world when everyoneís kind of questioning what it means to be the leader of the world.

I think itís not just another action movie. Maybe the first one was that, but weíre really trying to break it down and take the shine off and show that my Joes were the ones in the mud, the sand and the trees and in the epic worldwide adventures. Each one had individual talents. So we really want to bring the experience of what I grew up with playing with these toys. What it feels like so that kids now can be reintroduced to the Joes and experience it in a different way. This is like down and dirty Joe for me."


And yes, he did said something about doing an Action Film considering his background (as a dance film director). Take a look at what he said, after the jump.

"I mean, I canít ever change what people think. Throughout my whole life itís been, ďOh, how can this guy whoís not a dancer do a dance movie? How can this guy who has never done a movie do a movie? How can this guy who has never done 3D do a 3D dance movie? Isnít that cheeseball? How can this guy who has never done a documentary do a documentary? How can a Justin Bieber concert movie not be a concert movie? And how can it actually be successful when Jonas and all of those others have fallen?Ē Every step of the way, itís always been that. But even the message in Never Say Never is [how] we like to be the underdog. It gives us something to work for.

To me, I hope itís always like this in my life to where I always need to be pushed, because it always makes me better. But yeah, Iíve worked with choreographers before and of course itís very different. Itís dance and dance has a rhythm. Dance has a movement and all of this stuff. But what I love is that movement can tell stories, whether itís John Wayne on the porch leaning against that pole or Cyd Charisse taking off her jacket. Any movement can communicate what a paragraph can never communicate. Movement is a big part of visual story telling.

In action, obviously itís different, youíre doing a bunch of stuff. But the best action is action thatís telling your story, action thatís actually evolving your character. To me, I have a big challenge ahead of me. I want to do a really kick-ass movie, action thatís fun, big, crazy. But at the same time, at itís core, the action is telling an emotional story about our heroes. I think that my experience with LXD and the experiments of LXD only help prepare me for the mini-things I want to tell within the action.

Have people really seen LXD? I donít know. Thatís why Iím excited for the DVD to come out so a lot more people can be exposed to it. But I just let my work speak for itself. When it comes out, I hope people enjoy it as much as Iíve enjoyed creating the stuff, because itís really, really fun. Thatís all movies are about really. For me, it is to be able to experience a story - a fantasy with a group of friends, your family, a date - and go home and talk about it and let it inform your life and bring joy to your life. I think thatís what all of my projects have in common, that they try to do that."

He says the right things but that's it really. Saying and doing are two different things.

I don't think anyone was saying those things about documentaries and concert movies either. Chu was really stretching it with some of those arguments. This isn't a documentary. This is a $100 million+ global franchise and property.
