G I Joe 2makes Major Cast Changes
' Never Say Never ' director Jon Chu is in negotiations to direct ' G.I. Joe 2 ,' and that's not the only controversial move that Paramount's making for the developing sequel.
Last week, actress Rachel Nichols revealed that only three Joes — Duke (Channing Tatum), Snake-Eyes (Ray Park) and Storm Shadow (Byung-hun Lee) — are reprising their roles for the sequel. That's right, Rise of Cobra ,' and I don't care, as long as he's in the sequel. Terry Crews is the man for the job. Hey Jon Chu, we're looking at you!
The seafaring Joe risks coming across as cheesy, but there are ways to make the sharp-tongued Shipwreck work — like casting Dwayne Johnson in the role, a casting rumor that dates all the way back to 2008. The Rock or a similarly-minded actor would absolutely crush it as Shipwreck.
The absence of our familiar Joes means we're getting some new blood for the sequel, and you know what that means — they need a drill instructor. No one else can fill that role other than the tough-talking Beachhead. Well, almost no one, but I think it's still a little early for that Sgt. Slaughter cameo.
