This blogspot has been left barren for an extended period of time but for a variety of as-yet unposted features and even a movie review of the G.I.Joe movie (which look insipid on first viewing, but became somewhat entertaining on a DVD repeat viewing). Nevertheless, that time has gone, and we prepare ourselves for the coming of the full-feature sequel: "G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation"! To be directed by Jon M. Chu and produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura - actors reprising their roles from the first movie include Channing Tatum ("Duke"), Ray Park ("Snake Eyes"), and Byung Hun-lee ("Shadow Storm").

New "recruits" for the franchise has since been added to the list - including Dwayne Johnson as "Roadblock" (pic seen above), Ray Stevenson as "Firefly", RZA as "Blind Master", and Adrianne Palicki as "Lady Jaye". Today's news sees Bruce Willis in talks for a role as "General Joe Colton", the original G.I. Joe. "In the ’80s comic book series, the character is the one who forms the G.I. Joe strike team." ~says /Film.
G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation is scheduled for a 29th June 2012 USA-release. [IMDb]
