Jon Chu Toy Fair

Thursday’s April Fools-esque revelation Jon M. Chu would direct a Jem and the Holograms movie with producer Jason Blum is 100% true. Teamed with Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun, the trio took to YouTube to announce the project and ask the public for crowdsourced ideas.

GI Joe Dwayne Johnson

The two G.I. Joe films have been moneymakers for Paramount, and the studio is moving forward with the third installment, for which director Jon M. Chu is returning.

Now Evan Daugherty, who kickstarted his studio career with the sale of Snow White and the Huntsman to Universal, is keeping up his relationship with Paramount by writing the third Joe film. Daugherty has already done a rewrite on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for Paramount and Platinum Dunes.
