Embattled G.I. Joe Producer Defends Embattled G.I. Joe Director

With the Internet ablaze with rumors that director Stephen Sommers has been summarily dismissed from G.I. Joe, you'd think that someone from the studio would step up and publicly address the situation. That still hasn't happened, but producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura (who was also rumored to have been removed from the project) gave a brief interview to Latino Review to address the situation: "It's completely untrue, [Sommers] was never asked to leave or been [sic] fired or any of that. That’s ridiculous. The movie tested very well." [Latino Review]
