The sequel to the shit-tastic Rise of Cobra is now to be called G. I. Joe: Retaliation instead of the original Cobra Strikes. Paramount pictures has also given a release date of June 29th 2012 for the John Chu (Step Up 3D) directed picture.Yea… the dance guy is puttin’ his jazz hands all over this. *shakes head*
Members of the first G.I. Joe will return for the sequel including Channing Tatum as Duke, Ray Park as Snake Eyes and Byung Hun-lee as Stormshadow; kinda spoils the surprise there. Newcommers to the franchise are the likes of Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock, Elodie Yung as Jinx, DJ Cotrona as Flint, Adrianne Palicki as Lady Jaye, RZA as The Blind Master, Ray Stevenson as Firefly and Joseph Mazzello was just cast as a character named Mouse.
I have no idea what to expect, but I guess it can’t get an worse than the first film, unless the Joes break into song and dance.
