"G.I. Joe: Retaliation" director Jon Chu and "Divergent" scribe Evan Daugherty are currently working on the script for a third "G.I. Joe" movie. Chu claims he is "taking it to another level with this one...it's gonna be a really fun movie. We're taking it in a whole new direction."
The plan is to mix some old favorites with some new characters played by well-regarded actors. In regard to the new characters, Chu tells MTV that they will be "exciting ones that I know the fans will love, and people that I've always wanted to work with"
The big surprise though was the idea that Channing Tatum could return to the series despite his apparent death in the second: "You never know. Storm Shadow died in the first one and came back in the second one, and then other characters have died and never come back. The G.I. Joe world, the best thing about it is you never know who's coming back and who's not."
