Yesterday, the guys over at Schmoes Know got the scoop that Paramount is looking at Casino Royale & Green Lantern director Martin Campbell to direct their untitled G.I.Joe three-quel. This comes after G.I.Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu left the project to focus on Masters of the Universe which he also left for Jem: and The Holograms. It should be noted that Martin Campbell hasn't actually directed anything since 2011's Green Lantern which was panned by fans and critics alike.The directors reps have yet to respond to the request so nothing is set in stone regarding him taking on the project.
Paramount already stated they would like to release the movie in 2016 alongside their other major franchises Star Trek and Transformers. Currently it is being written by Lethal Weapon 4 scribe Jonathan Lemkin and will focus mainly on Dwayne Johnson's Roadblock character.
