Marching into production ASAP?

This just in: From the man who brought you the Mummy franchise comes the live-action adaptation of G. I. Joe!

Both IGN Movies and IESB reported over the weekend that Stephen Sommers, who wrote and directed the Mummy series and Van Helsing, will direct the Paramount-DreamWorks production.

Planned as a live-action film, G.I. Joe will be produced by Lorenzo Di Bonaventura, who also produced Hasbro’s Transformers. Although IMDB lists G.I. Joe due in 2010, IGN reports that production may begin soon to avoid an impending Hollywood strike.

While there has been speculation as to what storylines the G.I. Joe film will follow, the reports assert that the script will combine both Skip Woods‘ (Swordfish) origin story and a script by David Elliot & Paul Lovett (Four Brothers).
