SDCC 2013: Jon M Chu discussed G.I. Joe 3!

SDCC 2013 is winding down and G.I. Joe news has been a bit scarce.  However, the folks at CraveOnline decided to go straight to the source and talked to Jon M. Chu at the Hasbro booth about G.I. Joe 3!

Once again– I like what I’m hearing!  The fact that he’s open to bringing back characters from the first film that were noticeably absent in G.I. Joe: Retaliation is fantastic!  It’s very clear after reading all of the Retaliation interviews that director Jon M. Chu is a Joe fan from “way back” but that his hands were somewhat tied by having to acknowledge the events of Rise of Cobra.  However, that didn’t stop him from taking a pre-existing script and turning it into a action tour-de-force worthy of the Joes we all know and love.  Now, with more creative control and a self-professed love of the Marvel Comics series I can only speculate just what lies in store for the third film in the series.

Bringing back Scarlet because she has “more stories to tell”?  YO JOE!!!

A big thanks to the folks at CraveOnline for posting the interview!

    Rachel Nichols’ Scarlett was one of the best things to come out from Rise of Cobra. She’s enthusiastic about the franchise even though her character didn’t appear in Retaliation. I hope they bring her back for the third installment.
