Now that G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M Chu has left Masters of the Universe to direct G.I. Joe 3 (seriously, wasn’t two of them enough?) a number of prospective replacements have been put forwards.

The current favourites appear to be Jeff Wadlow (Kick-Ass 2), Mike Cahill (Another Earth), Harald Zwart (The Mortal Instruments) and Chris McKay (Robot Chicken). 

Other rumoured directors include Joe Cornish (Attack the Block), Rian Johnson (Looper), Andy Muschietti (Mama), Kirk DeMicco and Chris Sanders (The Croods), and Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The LEGO Movie), which likely serves as an indication of how much stock you can put in rumours.

That the scope of the candidates’ various film styles includes animation, action, drama, sci-fi and horror probably indicates that the film’s direction is being looked at from all angles before any decisions are made and production begins. Although we can only hope that whatever comes out is an improvement on the 1987 homoerotic Aryan wet dream starring Dolph Lundgren. If you’d managed to block that one from your memory, I apologise for reminding you.

Quoting Shauna:
I think Dolph should star in it, and wear even less clothes. That is all that is important. How about Lars Von Trier?

Shauna, your perversion both horrifies and intrigues me. You are to be commended.
