'G.I. Joe 3': Jon Chu Coming Back For 'G.I. Joe Retaliation' Sequel

Yo, Joe: Jon Chu is coming back to direct the third installment of the "G.I. Joe" franchise. Deadline.com reported on Tuesday that Chu will return to film a follow-up to his "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," which grossed $365 million around the world after its release in March.

Chu, himself, had teased the new gig on Twitter, before firing off the Deadline.com link.

That Chu would return for "G.I. Joe 3" isn't all that surprising; the director expressed interest in a "Joe" return during an interview with HuffPost Entertainment earlier this year.

"I'd love to [do another film]," Chu said. "If the audience wants it, it would be an honor to continue to be part of the G.I. Joe tradition. I think it is an honor just to be a part of it, because it's such a big brand, it's bigger than any of us and any of our movie stars, to be honest. So I would love to, and I think there's a lot more to do, given that opportunity."
