Stephen Sommers will reportedly return to helm a sequel to last summer's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. The first installment received a wave of bad reviews, but fans didn't care. The Paramount release raked in more than $300 million worldwide. There is no official word regarding which cast members will return.
Sommers has experience launching franchises thanks to The Mummy films, so this is not new territory. That franchise even launched a spin-off film in the for of The Scorpion King. There are plenty of characters in G.I. Joe that would be able to do the same thing.
