As awesome as this sounds, it could, sadly, put us one step closer to ‘Go-Bots: The Rise of Cy-kill’.
Dwayne Johnson steps in to save another sequel.
The idea of a ‘G.I Joe’ sequel smacks of film making as a numbers game, and the search for a director isn’t helping, as Paramount is batting around 3 different but equally middling talents for the job.
The Justin Bieber biopic has found its director, and a more fitting choice could not have been made. His name: Jon Chu.
"Who's Jon Chu," you ask? Oh, I don't know. He's only the director behind a little film called Step Up 3D, 2010's hottest dance based 3D movie! That's who Jon Chu is, b*tch! Who the hell are you?
Cinema Blend is reporting that over 20 directors applied for the job, but Chu ultimately won out because of his previous experience with 3D films. That, and he was the only one of the bunch who wasn't a convicted sex offender.
Rest easy, Justin. Jon Chu won't try to touch you in your bikini area.
