G.I. Joe Welcomes Back Director Stephen Sommers

Looks like the Wrap has the scoop on Stephen Sommers returning to direct the next G.I. Joe movie, according to an individual “familiar” with the project. Stephen Sommers and the studios had an alleged tension between each other, but it seems that it has faded.

Even though it was panned by the majority of the critics (34% on Rotten Tomatoes), I enjoyed it for what it was, a toy movie with cool ninja action. Storm Shadow, Snake Eyes and the light and fun tone made for an entertaining popcorn flick. Will the sequel try to do more with less, like what Michael Bay did with Transformers 2? Who knows, since his track record hasn’t been all that great since the first Mummy.
