G.I. Joe 2 has writers
According to IESB, G.I. Joe 2 is going to have two writers...
Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have been in the news this week when it was announced they had officially signed on to pen DEADPOOL for 20th Century Fox.
IESB has exclusively learned that not only are these two writing the script for the Merc with the Mouth, they've also just been handed the sequel to G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA that hit theaters this past August with Stephen Sommers at the helm.
We've reached out to Paramount and WME and are awaiting further comment.
RISE OF COBRA was a big summer success released in theaters August 7 and grossing over $300 million in worldwide box office receipts alone as well as a ton of money in DVD and toy/merchandise sales.
Reese and Wernick are most known for their work on the Sony Pictures' horror hit ZOMBIELAND that starred Woody Harrelson and grossed just under $100 million worldwide.
