Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. I don't share Harry's opinion on Stephen Sommers. I'm sure he's a nice guy, but VAN HELSING made me violent I was so offended. He does get points for DEEP RISING, though. I wish he'd make more of that type.
Now that Sommers is on GI JOE, I can't say that I'm eagerly looking forward to it, but I will say that by bringing on Stuart Beattie (COLLATERAL and the first PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN) to write the script has given me a little hope for the flick. I have Beattie's GEARS OF WAR draft that I'm eagerly awaiting to crack, but up until now he's proven himself to be a strong writer.
I had heard the script to JOE was beyond horrible, so I'm glad to hear they're attempting to rectify this.
