The Rock Gearing Up to Take Center Stage in G.I. Joe 3.
July 2, 2014
This just may be the
biggest news coming from 'G.I. Joe 3', which is the plot will
largely focus on Dwayne 'The Rock'
Seeing as he's the biggest
star currently involved with the franchise - and largely credited
with reviving it after a middling first film - this is unlikely to
come to a surprise to anyone.
What's bigger news,
though, is that the film has a writer - and a co-star for Johnson
Variety, as well as
reporting on The Rock's return and role, have revealed that
Jonathan Lemkin, of Shooter and Lethal Weapon 4 provenance, has
signed on to script the sequel.
What's more, Adrianne
Palicki seems set to return alongside Johnson. Howeverm there's no
word yet on whether or not John Chu will be back to direct - though
the fact that he's as yet unattached t the project suggests that
Either way, it's all
looking good for G.I. Joe fans - even though this writers initial,
irrational thought at first hearing the news - that G.I. Joe 3
would center around the San Francisco landmark The Rock, and follow
the plot of the classic 1996 action thriller of the same name -
looks set to be sadly dashed.
G.I. Joe 3 is currently
set for a 2016 release date.
