So it was just the other day that we told you Never Say Never's Jon M. Chu was on the short list to direct GI Joe 2. Well, that list just got a lot shorter, because Deadline is reporting that Chu has officially been given the job.
Remember, Paramount Pictures is in charge of GI Joe. And Never Say Never was a Paramount release. So Chu makes the studio an assload of money by doing the Bieber biopic, and he's rewarded by getting to do a movie they plan to pour a lot of money into. That seems fair to us.
Now, granted, none of us have seen NSN, so we don't know how it is as a movie. But remember that subject and style are two different things: just because it was about the Beeb, it doesn't mean the actual directing was crap, too.
