“G.I. Joe: Retaliation” director Jon M. Chu is returning for the upcoming third film in the “G.I. Joe” franchise. According to Chu though, he isn’t the only one coming back.
He tells CraveOnline that characters from both the previous films could return for the next outing, most notably Rachel Nichols’ Shana ‘Scarlett’ O’Hara from the first film.
“There’s definitely a possibility that we’ll get Scarlet back. I think there’s a lot of characters that we can get back. The G.I. Joe world is a large world and we’re with one section of it.
In mind it was never “Oh we’re getting rid of everyone and that’s that!” This is another part of the universe and I’m sure we’ll get her back. She has some of the most interesting storylines, especially with Snake Eyes.
The reason I love G.I. Joe is because it goes everywhere and it stretches and it pulls. There’s never been a mythology like that hefore where it mixes military, ninjas, androids, and crazy political things between the Cobra. I just love that. All the doors are open for us.”
Chu adds that the third G.I. Joe film will likely be shot in 3D, and no production or release date is yet set.
