G.I Joe 2: Retaliation has just started filming in Louisiana and with that comes the first photo of one of the new members for the sequel. Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock has tweeted a photo of himself as Roadblock, the heavy machine gunner. It looks touched up and very much an official photo, so I guess it comes Paramount approved.
1st day of shooting. 110 degrees. Bring It. #GIJoe
The movie co-stars Ray Stevenson (Firefly), RZA (Blind Master) and Adrianne Palicki (Lady Jaye) for G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation (hopefully the subtitle refers to this film’s mentality against the first!), which is looking a little more bad-ass in the casting stakes than the original. The few surviving returnee’s from the original besides Tatum’s Duke are; Ray Park (Snake Eyes), Byung Hun Lee (Storm Shadow) and Jonathan Pryce (U.S. President), with D.J. Cortuna and Elodie Yung are new additions.
Bruce Willis is in negotiations to play General Joe Colton, based on a script by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Paramount has set a release date of June 29th 2012 in place. Step Up helmer John Chu directs.
