Director D.J. Caruso spoke with Collider during a special screening of xXx: The Return of Xander Cage and Caruso talked about what he had in mind when he was in talks to helm G.I. Joe 3:

“Before I started this movie I had a couple meetings with Dwayne and the studio about what could happen with G.I. Joe. The franchise has been fairly successful, but there’s something about it that’s just not fully, fully clicking.”

Caruso had wanted to do the crossover between G.I. Joes and the Transformers to make the franchise click again but he received pressure to wait as Michael Bay is currently doing Transformer movies.

“Well yeah but they’re not ready to do [G.I. Joe meets Transformers] yet. That’s exactly what they should do but they’re not ready to do that because in fact the script that I was developing, the two worlds sort of collided at the end and when they read it they were like, ‘We’re not ready to do this yet.’… They will eventually collide those two worlds and it’s probably when Mr. Bay decides he’s done with Transformers.”

Caruso will speak with Paramount about G.I. Joe 3 again in the upcoming weeks and hope to have better results.

“It came close but I think what the studio was trying to do was reassess it and so now they’re back to the drawing board, and we’ll be talking again about it. It’s a valuable franchise—[it’s] not that they didn’t get it right, they just wanna really get it right and see if they can push it to the next level.”
