I just read at IESB that Mark Whalberg is going to play Duke in the GI Joe movie, good news. Now they have to get Vin Diesel to play Destro and Angelina Joelie to play the Baroness!
Interesting if true, it could work with the right approach and make the movies better. Caruso is a better director than Jon Chu, so it's a step in the right direction.
The M.A.S.K. intro, one of the coolest ever:
Here's one with the M.A.S.K. vehicle transformations:
With the right combination of practical and digital effects, a live action version could be awesome.
Caruso is a good choice to direct, the guy can do great action and is a decent director, will be interesting to see how this turns out.
I just want to see the return of Scarlet and Baroness. They were fierce! And Paramount.... set the date!
The Baroness is pretty busy, it could be complicated to bring Sienna Miller back: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1092227/
But Rachel Nichols seems more available (for now), so Scarlett has better chances: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0629697/
I was posting in another thread about GI Joe and it reminded me of this?
Does anyone think it's still coming out? I don't see this coming out before 2018 with where it's at and if The Rock is still attached.
I say reboot.
I say reboot, make it fun but not stupid like the first movie. More Winter soldier type tone. Drop The Rock but keep Ray Park as Snake Eyes.
For sure. I agree with the tone and all that
So I just saw the news that they are, of course, waiting for The Rock's schedule to clear up to do GI Joe 3.
Anyone think they should just reboot if they're gonna do this
There seems to be no hurry to do another GI Joe movie. The Rock's got a lot more on his plate.
Just for example, the Rock said he's going to be filming nonstop until August 2017. So think about that. You really think Paramount's going to start filming another GI JOE movie in 2018? Doubt it.
While the movies were by no means home runs, I do think storywise, they did a good job in terms of reaching from Point A to Point B so I'm not the biggest advocate of rebooting it completely.
I wonder if Joe 3 is still happening or is it dead in the water already? It's almost 4 years since Retaliation.
I'd love to see a near prequel (similar to Rogue One) based on Larry Hama's “Declassified” series, featuring the recruitment of the original 13 agents, and the missions that happened before G.I.JOE #1.
Such a missed opportunity. And yes, it's stupid to not have a crossover movie with Transformers.
So... GI Joe Renegades?
Pretty obvious they were going to start from scratch considering the sequel news has been dead for a while though
At the same time i hope they keep Ray Park and The Rock on board.
G.I. Joe gets release date of March 27th, 2020.
Prefer a UK Action Force version instead but heh ho....
Will be surprised if they still go forward with it, but we shall see.
Is it a sequel or a reboot?
I'd say a reboot, considering they are trying to launch this Hasbro Cinematic Universe thing.
This Cinematic Universe is probably gonna fail just like Dark Universe. I'd be surprised if the reboot does better than the last two films.
