Last week, we reported that Paramount was moving ahead with a sequel to G.I. Joe and then updated the story with the news that Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick would be handling the script. Variety has now confirmed our report. While there’s been no mention about whether or not Stephen Sommers will return to direct or if any of the cast will return as well, Reese and Wernick are solid picks. They’re also writing the X-Men spinoff movie Deadpool starring Ryan Reynolds.
On a separate note, Variety does not credit us for our scoop on this story. We find it frustrating that a respected news organization like Variety would not pay us the professional courtesy of citing our initial report. Hopefully, they will change this practice in the future.
