Just days after Justin Bieber: Never Say Never director Jon Chu was announced to helm the action sequel G.I. Joe 2 with a couple of characters having already been bumped from the roster, Paramount Pictures has decided upon a date for the movie, and they’re going with August 10, 2012, which is exactly three years and three days to the date after the Stephen Sommers movie G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra opened.
So far, no other movies are scheduled for that date (it’s early) but this will have the movie being released a week after The Bourne Legacy and the remake of Total Recall. With that being just 17 months away, expect there to be casting announcements very soon as they gear up for the highly-anticipated sequel.
