During the weeks leading up to the release of last summer’s “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra,” there were rumors that Paramount was unhappy with the work of director Steven Sommers and had booted him from the project.
The rumors were false and the film went on to earn $150 million at the box-office.
That means we’re getting a sequel and that Sommers will be back in the director’s chair. Sommer will direct a script by “Zombieland” writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
