THIS very brief piece at Latino Review reveals the "short list" of directors who might take the helm of a forthcoming G.I. JOE sequel. We've previously learned that the first film's director, Stephen Sommers, would not be returning to direct the picture. Per LR, the candidates are said to be...
Jaume Collet-Serra (HOUSE OF WAX, ORPHAN, GOAL II, UNKNOWN)
F Gary Gray (THE ITALIAN JOB,. LAW ABIDING CITIZEN, A MAN APART, SET IT OFF)
and John Chu (JUSTIN BIEBER: NEVER SAY NEVER, STEP UP 2, STEP UP 3D)
Not a list that any of us were expecting. Of this group, F. Gary Gray would seem to be the most appropriate choice. But, then again, who woulda figured Rob Marshall would be directing a PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN movie?
