G.I. Joe 3 To Begin Filming Come February/ March of 2015

We all heard that G. I. Joe 3 would be released in 2016, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura states that the film will begin shooting in early 2015.

The producer said:

“G.I. Joe 3 we are trying to get going, starting early next year…I think it’ll be a little later than [January]. I think February or March is probably more realistic. We were originally shooting for January and I think it’s slid a little bit, but you never know. It’s still a little too early to tell yet.”

The producer confirmed that they do not have a director, but the search has just begun in earnest since Jon Chu is indeed out:

“We’re just starting [to talk to directors]. We’re negotiating with a writer right now, and once we close that deal—which should be any moment—then we’ll have a story locked down. I’m really excited about it.”

I for one think this will be fantastic to the property. Joe has taken a beating over the last 2 years and well, we are due for some good news. After reading the article it seems the director (Lorenzo di Bonaventura ) wants to give us a smart, action packed G.I. Joe movie. Retaliation was good BUT it did miss the mark on a few areas. I would like to see a larger scale battle, none watered down and the return of some older characters from the first film. He did state that fans have asked for characters from Joe mythology to make an appearance so who knows. The one thing I do know is we will be getting a new G.I. Joe film and that alone is exciting. This could be our last foray into film so let us go out with a bang.
