G.I. JOE 3: Film May Have Found A New Director

Channing Tatum Dwayne Johnson GI Joe Redemption

D.J. Caruso In Talks For G.I. Joe 3. D.J. Caruso is currently in talks to direct the third installment in the G.I. Joe movie franchise. Caruso whose previous directorial work includes Disturbia and I Am Number Four was brought into negotiations after G.I. Joe Retaliation director Jon M. Chu left the production to direct the big screen adaptation of the Jem And The Holograms television series.

 At this point, all the G.I. Joe franchise is looking for in a director is a warm body to tell the cameraman where to point and shoot. Despite abysmal critical receptions, the previous two films in the franchise have raked in over half a billion dollars at the box office and despite its lack of artistic merit, you can be sure that Paramount is not finished milking every last drop out of this cash cow.

Hawk (Dennis Quaid), Duke (Channing Tatum) and the rest of the G.I.
