Please let these movie franchises die a peaceful death
Do we really want more 'Terminator,' 'G.I. Joe' or 'Die Hard' movies?
Movies: "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" (2009), "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" (2013)
Upcoming movies: D.J. Caruso is in place to direct "G.I. Joe 3" for a 2016 premiere date.
Why: "G.I. Joe" has been around in one form or another for nearly fifty years, so the brand itself isn't going away anytime soon, but it may not be meant for live-action cinema. When the 2009 film disappointed, 2013's delayed semi-reboot was ordered up, and the results weren't much better. Even the addition of Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson couldn't distinguish it from all the other action movies being crammed into theaters. And you know what won't help? A potential crossover with the "Transformers" franchise, which has been rumored, debunked and then rumored again.
