    Jon M. Chu & Jason Blum Making Live Action 'Jem And The Holograms' Movie, Open Up Casting To Everyone

    It seems director Jon M. Chu has two operating modes: dance/music ("Step Up 2: The Streets," "Step Up 3D," "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never," "Justin Bieber: Believe") or action ("G.I. Joe: Retaliation"). And after making thing explodes for Hasbro, he's turning his attention to another one of their p...

    Watch: James Mangold's 'Call Of Duty' Ad With Megan Fox, Jon M. Chu's Musical Virgin Airlines Spot & More

    It’s tough finding funding for a non-tentpole these days and it’s only getting harder, so what’s a director to do? How about shooting a commercial on the fly to keep the juices flowing and the lights on?

    Jon M. Chu No Longer Has The Power Of Grayskull, Will Not Direct 'Masters Of The Universe'

    With "G.I. Joe 3" in the mix and rumors of "Star Trek 3" as well, it would appear that director Jon M. Chu had one blockbuster too many on his plate. So, sorry He-Man fans, you'll have to wait a bit longer for your movie.

    Paramount Hires 'Snow White And The Huntsman' Scribe Evan Daugherty For 'G.I. Joe 3'

    Apparently the admirably goofy "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" made enough money that Paramount and Hasbro are going back to the based-on-a-line-of-popular-action-figures well one more time; they've just hired Evan Daugherty, the screenwriter behind last summer's "Snow White and the Huntsman," to pen "G.I. ...

    Rumor: 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' Helmer Jon M. Chu Contender To Direct 'Star Trek 3'; Kurtzman/Orci Will Write The Film

    A couple of weeks back an offhand comment by Zachary Quinto set nerds into a lather as it was suggested that J.J. Abrams—tasked with helming "Star Wars: Episode 7"—was somehow going to find time to direct "Star Trek 3" in time for a 2016 release. Keep dreaming, we said. And it would appear that our ...

    Good News Everyone, 'G.I. Joe 3' Is Happening And Jon M. Chu Will Return To Direct

    Why? Because there are brands to maintain, franchises to continue and toys to sell. Because "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" is the 8th highest grossing film domestically so far in 2013, and earned nearly double that overseas for a worldwide tally of $365 million and change. Because, Dwayne Johnson. You may ...

    Watch: The Prime Directive Comes Into Play In First Clip From 'Star Trek Into Darkness'

    Ooh, looks like "Star Trek Into Darkness" is getting into some ethical and moral quandaries with the sequel, as the first clip from the movie features J.J. Abrams' never still camera, some distractingly skin tight suits, sweat and oh yeah, Spock's life in crucial danger. Trapped down on an alien pla...

    Review: 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' Is No Masterpiece, But Popcorn Entertainment That Redeems The Series Somewhat

    It’s tough to say if I would be as generous with my praise of “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” if I weren’t such a big fan of its director, Jon M. Chu, but given the mechanical one-dimensionality of most big-budget franchise films, the sequel earns its critical bona fides simply by being made by a director w...

    David Slade Out, 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' Director Jon Chu In For Young Adult Adaptation 'Matched'

    Studios continue to hunt the great white whale of the young adult franchise. With "Twilight" over, "The Hunger Games" is the only player in town, but 2013 brings two contenders to the fore: "Beautiful Creatures" which we're only watching because of Emmy Rossum and &...

    'Step Up 2' & 'G.I. Joe 2' Director Jon M. Chu To Helm 'Masters Of The Universe'

    You see that image up there? That's every reason why Sony and Mattel are teaming up to try and bring He-Man, Skeletor and the rest of "Masters Of The Universe" characters to the big screen. It's all about toys and merchandising and you can bet that watching Hasbro milk "Transf...
