‘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.

Stephen Sommers will return to the director’s seat for G.I. Joe 2: The Search for More Money.

If the track record is any indication, Sommers will tackle this one, and seven years from now, Rob Cohen will take over to direct the long-gestating threequel G.I. Joe: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor.

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