http://movieweb.com/jem-and-the-holograms-movie-announced-with-director-jon-m-chu/On Thursday, G.I. Joe Retaliation director Jon M. Chu announced that he would be making a live-action Jem and the Holograms movie with producers Jason Blum and Scooter Braun. This sent fans into a whirlwind of excitement, especially since the trio was asking for their help in getting the project off the ground. However, Jon M. Chu is also slated to direct G.I. Joe 3, which has many wondering which 80s Hasbro toy is going to get to the big screen first.
Answering questions on Twitter last night, Chu revealed that he is slipping, what he calls a 'little film', Jem and the Holograms in before G.I. Joe 3, because the screenplay for this anticipated G.I. Joe Retaliation sequel is taking a little longer than expected.
