Zombieland Writers Hired for G.I. Joe Sequel
Posted 01.08.10 by Ryan
A sequel to G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra is on the way and while screenwriter Stuart Beattie has some ideas for a sequel, his services won't be needed. Collider reports that Paramount has hired the Zombieland screenwriting team of Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick to pen the sequel. The duo are pretty busy, having been recently confirmed to be writing the Deadpool spin-off as well.
The report could not confirm whether director Stephen Sommers will be brought back for G.I. Joe 2, though with new screenwriters working on the story, it's possible that a new director could be brought in too.
