Jon M. Chu has been confirmed to direct 'G.I. Joe 3' after the success of 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation'.
Jon M. Chu will direct 'G.I. Joe 3'.
The 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' filmmaker has signed on to direct the third instalment in Paramount and MGM's action franchise, according to Deadline.
After 2009's 'G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra' was critically panned, the director was given the tough task of rebooting the franchise - which is based on Hasbro's G.I. Joe toy line - and delivered above expectations.
The film was met with a warmer response than its predecessor and earned $365 million worldwide - more than the $300 million the first film took in 2009.
The film studio is reportedly negotiating with four writers to pen the third flick, with a scribe expected to be selected shortly.
Chu previously expressed his desire to return to the franchise and create a more action-packed follow-up after 'Retaliation' laid the groundwork by introducing a slew of new characters.
He told BANG Showbiz: ''You know, it would be an honour [to do it], if fans went out to see it [this time]. And man I'd love to [make another one]. We have a lot of foundation with the characters here, so it would be really fun to take to the next level.''
