Channing Tatum and Dwayne Johnson in G.I. Joe: Retaliation
Apparently the admirably goofy "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" made enough money that Paramount and Hasbro are going back to the based-on-a-line-of-popular-action-figures well one more time; they've just hired Evan Daugherty, the screenwriter behind last summer's "Snow White and the Huntsman," to pen "G.I. Joe 3." Paramount was impressed with the work Daugherty did getting their "Ninja Turtles" screenplay into fighting shape (sorry, couldn't resist). 'Retaliation' director Jon M. Chu returns as director. As of now a silly subtitle has yet to be decided on.

Why? Because there are brands to maintain, franchises to continue and toys to sell. Because "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" is the 8th highest grossing film domestically so far in 2013, and earned nearly double that overseas for a worldwide tally of $365 million and change. Because, Dwayne Johnson. You may not be too thrilled, but Paramount has plenty of reasons to want to continue the "G.I. Joe" series.

In a move likely to be viewed by studio execs as a bolstering win rather than an uneasy battle, “GI Joe: Retaliation” has overcome delays, reshoots, and narrative rejiggering to win the weekend box-office with $54.7 million. Leading on to a $132 million global haul, that leaves Paramount with a deep sigh of relief, and a newfound aim to try their luck a third time.
