‘G.I. Joe 2’ Gets a ‘G.I. Joe’ Director

If, by reading the headline, you were hoping that the incomparable Don Jurwich – who directed the 1987 animated G.I. Joe film – had signed on to take on the sequel to G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, your hopes are about to be dashed.

That’s how it’s done these days. [The Wrap]
