GI Joe 2 Set For 2012 Release (Groan..)
Just a week after refusing to fund a sequel to one of the finest comedies of the last decade, Paramount have decided to fund a sequel to one of the worst films of the last twelve months.
Despite being described a s a box office ‘hit’ by many media outlets, the original GI Joe was a terrible piece of film-making, but studio bosses revealed that shooting for GI Joe 2 is scheduled to start next year.
“Paramount is very excited about us getting it going. No dates have been set. In our heads we think 2012 – that summer,” said producer, Lorenzo di Bonaventura.
The one silver lining to this news is that the script for the sequel will be written by Zombieland scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
