Martin Campbell Is In Talks To Direct G.I. JOE 3


Depending on how you may feel about the recent live-action renditions of Hasbro property, G.I. Joe, it's probably about time we finally got another step closer to some news on the third film in the franchise. Over the course of the past few years, directing prospects went to Jon M. Chu who sat behind the camera for the 2013 sequel, G.I. Joe: Retaliation following helmer Stephen Sommers's 2009 flick, G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra. Of course, that was before he moved back to doing movie musicals like the upcoming Jem And The Holograms and the recently announced Can't Touch This, and so on that word, the latest filmmaker now being sought after is Green Lantern, Goldeneye and Casino Royale helmer Martin Campbell.

Talks are reportedly early according to Schmoe's Know via Screenrant, but if confirmed, Campbell will hopefully be the one to help tone down the storyline to a more grittier, espionage-driven, military action movie as opposed to what was done before in the first two films, with the second being a much greater improvement. Shooter scribe Jonathan Lemkin is attached for the screenplay with Snow White And The Huntsman writer Evan Daugherty no longer penning it, while Retaliation co-stars, actress Adrienne Palicki and actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson are expected to return, with mentions of other possible names from the first two films. Beyond this, official announcements are still pending regarding who will be back, in addition to whether or not we'll still get our fair share of ninja action courtesy of Ray Park's Snake Eyes and Lee Byung-Hun's Storm Shadow... because ninjas. Bruh.

Campbell was last reported to be on deck for the upcoming book adaptation, Hunter Killer, which should include some of those more popular espionage/action elements he's become known for in his films, a thing which should give Lemkin plenty of space to work with as well. So, hopefully we'll learn more about what Campbell and Lemkin may have in store for G.I. Joe 3 now that Cobra Commander is back at large and still a threat. Perhaps London will get even this time.

Stay tuned for more info!

Is Summit Trying To Cast TOM CRUISE For HIGHLANDER?

In 1986, you likely wouldn't have guessed that director Russell Mulcahy's fantasy swordplay actioner, Highlander, would live to see a cult following after earning low numbers upon its release. Fortunately however, it accomplished just that, with the addition of television shows and enough continual theatrical flops that would make one wonder just why these films were ever made.

Keanu Reeves In Talks For Tarsem Singh Actioner, THE PANOPTICON

If you're still buzzing over those awesome feels after seeing actor Keanu Reeves discriminately shoot bad guys in the face with a vengeance in his latest success story, John Wick, I don't blame you.

Grillo: 'THE RAID Won't Be Made Unless Its Good Or Better Than The Original'

While commercial expectations for director Patrick Hughes's latest feature film, The Expendables 3, fell short in the face of the millions of illegal downloads it suffered from, the film still bares the brunt of mixed and mostly critical opinions that exemplify just what happens when you take an R-rated property and water it down to try and include a broader audience. With that in mind, it was just at the top of the year when Hughes was officially attached to direct an American adaptation of an overseas cult hit that has already garnered a substantially grand audience in the last several years, and with the current state of consumer opinions on Hollywood remakes of foreign films for lack of original ideas, to say the least, discretion is key.

Actor Lorenzo Richelmy is a new face for the average television viewer, but he's clearly proven himself to be a great pick for series creator and producer John Fusco in the title role of Netflix's newest series, Marco Polo. The series is another foray into quality storytelling for mature audiences who have grown an affinity for original programming like that of The Tudors and Game Of Thrones, filled with a mix of intrigue, sex and danger at every turn.
