Wow…this is a very cool, very in depth, very long video interview that Collider was able to do with G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA director Stephen Sommers. The full article is here, but I am also embedding the video below. A brief wrap up also, so click the “Read the Rest of the Story” link to check out the full article.
