Take the following as a rumor until something is officially announced. Recent ramblings suggest that Casino Royale director Martin Campbell is in talks to helm the as yet untitled G.I. Joe 3.
Reports Screen Rant:
With films like Goldeneye, Casino Royale and Edge of Darkness under his belt, it’s clear that Campbell can do darker action/espionage thriller material with a confident hand. On the other side of that filmography, films like Green Lantern and the two Zorro movies suggest that Campbell isn’t nearly as strong with pulpier hero material. The question for G.I. Joe 3 then, is which side of Martin Campbell are the producers most interested in?
What would be interesting to see is how much (or little) Campbell embraces the ninja/mysticism elements of the G.I. Joe franchise. The story of Snake Eyes, his rival Storm Shadow and their ninja sect has arguably been the best part of the G.I. Joe movies; but how much of a fit would all that be in a truly grounded, thriller-type action film?
Again, until something is officially announced, this is all a rumor at this point in time. Still, we would be interested in seeing what Campbell would bring to the third installment of the franchise.
G.I. Joe 3 is being penned by Jonathan Lemkin.
