A little of that Ray Stevenson feeling, please.
If you didn’t see ‘GI Joe: Rise of the Cobra’, not to worry – Hasbro still wants your money.
Director Stephen Sommers may return for the proposed G.I. Joe sequel, Coming Soon is reporting…because they're obviously bored. Sommers, who directed G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, would join Channing Tatum, who will reprise his role as Captain Duke Hause. Whooop-dee-do!
What is interesting, however, is that Rhett Reese and Paul Wernic, the writers behind Zombieland, are working on the script. This seems to indicate one of two things. Either the next G.I. Joe film will be a vast improvement over the original, or a certain pair of screenwriters are about to be exposed as frauds. Only time will tell.
Got to get tough, Reese and Wernic!
The '09 summer movies have already begun to arrive, but still to come are some of the biggest, baddest, FX-iest movies around. For robot fans, you can look no further than three of the biggest releases this summer: Terminator Salvation, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and (if it sticks to the cartoon’s use of robot drones to satisfy the ratings board) G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra. [No, colons are not movie code for “Robot Plot.”] Robots are on the A-List now, but they didn't always have it so good. Here are five cinematic robots that just didn’t work (as they were intended): T-800 from Terminator Program: Kill Sarah Connor, period.
