GI JOE 2 Confirmed And Storm Shadow Returning
Did you think that GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra marked the demise of Storm Shadow? Well, that is not the case, because 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 film's 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.
