GI JOE 2 Confirmed And Storm Shadow Lives!
For those of you that hated GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra stop reading now. Not only is a sequel confirmed, but Storm Shadow is returning!
THR has announced that Lee Byung-Hun has signed to reprise his role. He will soon be seen in I Saw The Devil which premiered at Fantastic Fest this past year. An official announcement on who is directing GI Joe 2 should be expected soon since he begins filming in June.
The sequel was greenlit by Paramount after it was in theaters despite it pulling in only $150 million in the US against a $175 million budget. Overall the films take was $300 million after international receipts. At least the franchise is not going out on that note.
I actually enjoyed the first film and know I am in the minority for that. I had hoped for so much more, but was just happy to have a live-action version. I am also not one that ever gets myself overly excited before any film, because I do not want to be let down.
