And Then There Were Two: Paramount Narrows Down Director Choices For G.I. Joe Sequel

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount has narrowed the directorial choices for the sequel to G.I. Joe down to F. Gary Gray and Jon M. Chu.
"The franchise follow-up is a high-priority project for the studio, which hopes to have production underway by June for a 2012 release," says The Reporter...
Chu, of course, is no stranger on the studio lot, having directed Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, which opened to $29.5 million last weekend. Before that, he directed two installments in Disney's Step Up dance franchise... Gray, who directed The Italian Job for Paramount to $168 million worldwide in 2003, was last in theaters with the 2009 action thriller Law Abiding Citizen... Since the studio sold distribution rights to its summer 2012 tentpole The Avengers to Disney last year, Paramount could use another high-profile summer 2012 release. Already slated are Sacha Baron Cohen and Larry Charles' comedy The Dictator (May 11, 2012), the DreamWorks animation sequel Madagascar 3 (May 18) and Star Trek 2 (June 29)."
