G.I.Joe: Retaliation (aka GIJOE 2) Dir: Jon Chu

Looks like the studio (and Hasbro) are happy with the almost $290 million to date take of G.I. Joe.

According to the latest round of Q&A's from fan sites to Hasbro, Paramount has confirmed to Hasbro that a sequel is going forward.


3.) Has the box office receipts of GI Joe: Rise of Cobra met or exceeded Hasbro's expectations? Are they enough to officially green light a sequel?

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra box office results are strong globally, and Paramount has confirmed that there will be sequel.

Also,

Spoiler:

a fan site for Byung Hun Lee (storm shadow) claims he is to start work on GIJOE 2 as early as the end of this year

No Cobra-La...just get CC in the hood or mask, bring back Storm Shadow and blow some more shit up.

Great news (both in and out of spoiler)! Now we just need to get Sienna Miller and Rachel Nichols back.

Re: G.I.Joe 2 Coming

hell yeah!!!

All they gotta do is:

Fix Snake Eyes mask.
Fix Cobra Commander's mask.
Fix the look of Dr. Mindbender
Have some freaking Cobra logos on the bad guys.
Give Zartan more action.
Less Duke.
More famous Cobra characters (Major Bludd, Tomax and Xamot, Scap Iron, Firefly, Serpentor).

She and Rachel Nichols seemed like the only two in the first one that had a grip on what they were doing. Hopefully they both return.

Please have Duke vanish and let Flint take over, unless the actor they get is on the same level as the one who played Duke then just get rid of him altogether.

I'm hoping for more Brendan Fraser, personally.

More Brendan Fraser as Sgt. Stone is a must. I didn't hate Tatum so I don't mind seeing Duke return. But I want Flint in the sequel. Have Jensen Ackles as Flint tearing shit up with Brendan Fraser and you'll have a kickass sequel.

Re: G.I.Joe 2 Coming

Just as long as JGL is back as Cobra Commander (with a fixed voice because his Vader attempts were a little much, even for Cobra), I'll be there opening day.

Re: G.I.Joe 2 Coming

I still think Tatum is too boyish to be a leader of the JOEs. Duke was a man, Tatum is too young. Alas...I can't see them booting him out, based on how these films don't ever boot out the lead actor.

Hell yeah! Who gives a damn if his scenes with Sienna Miller will be more awkward than Sean Connery romancing Catherine Zeta Jones in Entrapment (well, before I knew she had a thing for saggy wrinkles)!

Too bad they couldn't get him for The Expendables, I guess that re-animation fluid costs an arm and a leg and Millennium Films doesn't have the dough Paramount has.

I just want to see Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow beat the shit out of each other for two hours while shit blows up in the background. I could care less about anything else.

Fixed.

But what about the Baroness/Scarlet romantic subplot?
