GI JOE 2 Has Bieber Fever, Gets Jon Chu As Director

The director of STEP UP 2 THE STREETS and NEVER SAY NEVER will be dancing his way to The Pit for GI JOE 2.

I don’t know Jon Chu, but you have to be a little wary when you see that the guy who directed the last two Step Up films and Never Say Never, the canonization of Justin Bieber, gets the job of directing the ultimate boy’s action movie, GI Joe 2.

But that’s just what has happened, according to Deadline. The site is reporting that Chu has been chosen to helm the sequel to the wacky but enjoyable movie based on a toy line; GI Joe 2, with a script by the guys who wrote Zombieland, will shoot this fall.

The question now is which characters return. I’m just hoping that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is nailed in for sequels, because I loved him so much in the first movie.
