Jon M Chu’s JEM & THE HOLOGRAMS Project Takes Center Stage Over GI JOE 3
Earlier this week, every female that grew up in the 1980’s let out a squeal of excitement when it was revealed that director Jon M. Chu was going to work on a film centered on the popular Jem & The Holograms cartoon via crowd-sourcing. What a lot of people forgot was that Chu, along with Evan Daugherty, is in the process of putting together a script for a third film in the GI Joe franchise. As you’ll remember, Chu directed the sequel, GI Joe: Retaliation, which gave the franchise a much needed shot in the arm to revive it from the rather lack-luster first film that Stephan Sommers directed.
So what’s the issue you ask? Well, according to a Twitter reply that Chu sent out, the Jem movie will likely take priority of the third GI Joe film.

It pleases me that he’s taking the time to make sure that the script for GI Joe 3 is a good one, as there is a ton of potential in that franchise, especially since they have brought in Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis, who could easily carry the franchise for the foreseeable future, However, fans of the franchise will have to wait that much longer. No release date had been set for the film, but it looks as though we’ll probably have to wait until after 2016 at the very earliest to see the Joes on the big screen again.
I know some of you are excited to see Jem dance her way across the big screen, but is it enough to keep your mind off another GI Joe movie for the next several years?
