With Paramount Pictures’ G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra hitting theaters in less than three weeks on Friday, August 7th, we’ve received some new updates on the big screen adaptation.
We’ll start with CineFOOLS who got a chance to speak to director Stephen Sommers at the Sydney, Australia press conference and asked about a possible sequel and the rumor that he was fired during post-production. He told the site that the cast is signed for a sequel and you can check out his other comments here.
Next up, Sommers has launched an official site at StephenSommers.com that includes an exclusive clip from the Paris chase sequence in “The Rise of Cobra,” an exclusive Webisode documenting the visual effects approval process on the film–offering first glimpses at new visual effects shots–plus Stephen’s USC student film “Perfect Alibi” in its entirety, an interview with the director, and behind-the-scenes looks at all of his past films.
We’ve also got photos from the above-mentioned press conference in Sydney which was attended by Sommers, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura and cast members Channing Tatum, Sienna Millar, Marlon Wayans and Rachel Nichols. You can view those by clicking here or on the photo below!
