Zombieland Screenwriters Hired For GI Joe Sequel

GI Joe

Update: IESB is now reporting the Paramount Pictures has hired Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick to pen a sequel to GI Joe: Rise of Cobra. Reese and Wernick recently signed on to pen Deadpool for Fox/Marvel, and might be the perfect scribes to invent some over the top stupid action for a GI Joe sequel. As I said in the Deadpool post, I’m a big fan of Reese and Wernick’s work on Zombieland. I don’t think people give enough credit to the clever and hilarious screenplay when talking about the success of that film.

Another Reason Why the GI Joe Movie Is Going To Suck

Latino Review has a first look at Gerald Okamura in costume as The Hard Master in GI Joe: Rise of Cobra. The Hard Master is Storm Shadow’s Uncle and head of the Arashikage ninja clan. In the comic book series (possible spoiler alert), The Hard Master is murdered, causing Snake Eyes to leave the clan and Storm Shadow to join Cobra. In the comics The Hard Master looked kinda bad ass. Judging by the set photo above, the feature film version just seems rather generic and cartoonish. Okamura looks like something I would expect to see in the Dragonball movie.
