News out today is that the third installment in the G.I.Joe Movie Franchise is going to be getting a new script written by Aaron Berg. Check out the latest on this below, and let us know what you think after the JUMP!
Aaron Berg, the writer behind Section 6, the hot spec that detailed the origins of British intelligence agency MI6, is now tackling a different mission.
The scribe has been tapped to pen a new script for G.I. Joe 3, and will work with director D.J. Caruso to revamp the action franchise based on the Hasbro toyline.
After sparking a four-way bidding war over his Section 6 script—which resulted in a lawsuit from MGM and James Bond rightsholder Danjaq that was settled in January—the project is underway, with Jack O’Connell set to star and Joe Cornish to direct.
Section 6 tells the story of British intelligence agency M16 that was founded during World War I.
As for Berg’s latest undertaking, D.J. Caruso will direct and Lorenzo di Bonaventura will produce G.I. Joe 3, expected in theaters next year.
