Director Stephen Sommers, whose last film was Van Helsing, may be directing the big screen adaptation of G.I. Joe, says IESB.net.
I’m not sure how I feel about this. Sommer’s The Mummy and, believe it or not Deep Rising, were fun rides, but The Mummy Returns and Van Helsing were a bit overbloated with story and CGI effects.
I felt that Michael Bay handled Transformers well, so maybe Sommers will knock it out of the park. Let’s see what happens, but I’m sure you, the readers, will have a lot to say about this.
Also, be sure to check out Hasbro’s look at the G.I. Joe history, and also Superhero Hype’s! news about this here and an interview with the producer here. I personally hope we get a killer PG-13 war movie!
So now you know what’s going on with the G.I. Joe big screen adaptation. And knowing’s half the battle!
