Fresh off his stint with Justin Bieber’s groundbreaking (and in 3D!) documentary, Never Say Never, Chu was tapped last week to hop into the cockpit of the not-so-anticipated sequel to 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.
Taking over pop-movie franchises shouldn’t be new to Chu considering he took over the totally awesome Step Up movies — one of them was in 3D too! Does that mean this new “G.I. Joe” masterpiece will get a third dimension? I sure hope so!
This takes me back to my Ratner comparison. Ratner got his start in music videos and that’s the route that Chu seems to be on — and there’s no complaints on my end. I’m just glad that we got some represent-ASIAN behind popcorn-worthy cinema (please forgive the bad pun — I felt obligated to do some wordplay). Let’s just hope that Chu doesn’t do the same thing that Ratner did with the X-Men franchise.
Then again, the first G.I. Joe wasn’t that hot to begin with.
