After director Jon M. Chu abandoned the third installment of â€œG.I. Joeâ€ film, Hasbro and Paramount are in negotiations with D.J. Caruso to direct the next film.
Caruso directed â€œDisturbia,â€ â€œEagle Eyeâ€ and â€œI Am Number Fourâ€ in the past few years. Heâ€™ll be a good matched for this action-packed movie.
Itâ€™s not clear on which characters may return since most of them didnâ€™t return for a sequel. However, itâ€™s probably a safe bet that Dwayne Johnson will return as Roadblock.
Lorenzo di Bonaventura will return in the producing role with Hasbroâ€™s Brian Goldner.
Chu left last year to direct another animated cartoon-turn-action movie with â€œJem and the Holograms.â€ Martin Campbellâ€™s name mentioned mid-year, but it never went anywhere during the talks.
