What happens when the director who’s top on your list wants ten million? Roll ’em out and move on, that’s what. According to IESB, that figure is the reason Lorenzo diBonaventura and Stephen Sommers are passing on one another, leaving G.I. Joe hanging like a lost little child in the middle of a divorce. Hey Lorenzo, just be glad Sommers didn’t ask for half.
So who’s going to fill the chair? Does it matter? (I’m split 50/50 on that answer.) There are still reports that put Len Wiseman as a possible helmer, even though it’s being reported today that he’s in serious talks with New Line to cement the Escape From New York remake as a movie no one needs to see.
