Now that G.I. Joe Retaliation director Jon M. Chu has been confirmed to direct G.I. Joe 3, Paramount has brought on Snow White and the Huntsman writer Evan Daugherty to pen the script.

The writer also performed a last-minute rewrite on Paramount's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which impressed studio executives enough to land him this writing gig. No story details have been revealed, but Paramount put the sequel in development this April, just after G.I. Joe Retaliation took in $41 million during its opening weekend. G.I. Joe Retaliation earned $371 million worldwide, outperforming the 2009 original G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, which grossed $309 million worldwide.

No cast members have been confirmed for G.I. Joe 3, but it is believed that G.I. Joe Retaliation stars Dwayne Johnson, D.J. Cotrona, Byung-hun Lee, Adrianne Palicki, Ray Park and Bruce Willis will return.

Evan Daugherty's other writing credits include Killing Season and Summit's upcoming young adult adaptation Divergent.

G.I. Joe 3 comes to theaters in 2016 and stars Dwayne Johnson.

    Just for the record. The Rock had NOTHING to do with this movie making millions. The Movie sucked compared to the first1. whether you like it or not. The first1 was cheesy and dull, while gi joe 2 was a big step up. however things just didnt add up to the first film.
    We were left with a ton of joes not 100, but at least 500 or so.
    Then in gi joe 2. it seem like there was only less than 100, they were all killed, only what 4 or 5 were left?
    And 1 thing i hated big time was making the rock AKA roadblock the main character while duke got the boot.. What just because hes bigger star than channin, you wanna replace him with rock? This is gi joe, duke was always the main guy in the toons, you cant just put him in 2nd place because another joe is a bigger star.
    Im a gi joe fan. and i like both films because of that. but if i were to pick a fav. id go for part1.
    So lets hope for a step up with part3 but i know it not gonna work. They cant just act like ricord, scarlet, heavy duty, breaker and hawk never existed, not to mention, the pit, the uss carrier. .
