'G.I. Joe Again' Made Enough Money That Jon Chu Will Make Another
G.I. Joe: Retaliation was largely panned by critics, and was reported to require reshoots and a 3D conversion to try to mask problems too large The Rock to stand in front of. But since it made $243 million abroad, it still managed to make a profit on the $130 million budget it failed to match in the US, so Paramount and MGM are going to add another film to the franchise, Deadline reports. Since he did a satisfactory enough job reminding Rock and Willis which franchise they were shooting things in, Jon M. Chu is in talks to return to direct. Considering the series' increasing reliance on foreign markets, expect that when the Joes save the President this time, they'll be sure to remind him that China would never allow such a thing to happen to their glorious paramount leader.
