Sommers To Helm “G.I. Joe” Sequel

Stephen Sommers (“The Mummy,” “Van Helsing”) is set to return behind the director’s chair for the sequel to “G.I. Joe” at Paramount PIctures reports The Wrap.

Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (“Zombieland”) have penned the script and Channing Tatum is expected to reprise his role as Capt. Duke Hauser in the follow-up to the critically panned 2009 live-action feature which still managed a healthy $300 million worldwide gross.

No word if any of the other cast members will also return. Sommers and Lorenzo di Bonaventura are likely to produce.
