Stephen Sommers Coming Back to Direct G.I. JOE Sequel

Ugg, I'm not a big fan of Stephen Sommers. I absolutely hated his first G.I. Joe film, and now it looks like he's jumping on board to direct the sequel, which is the worst possible thing that Paramount Pictures can do with the project. It makes me sick just thinking about it. Yeah, I'm not excited about him directing G.I. Joe 2 at all. This film franchise should have been treated with more respect to the G.I. Joe fans. 

The sequel was written by the team that wrote Zombieland, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. That's the one good thing this movie has going for it. The studio apparently really liked the draft that they turned in. So why ruin it by bringing Sommers in to direct the film? Personally, I think the whole G.I. Joe movie franchise needs a reboot. I'd like to pretend the first film doesn't even exist. 

What do you all think about Steven Sommers coming back to direct the G.I. Joe sequel?
