Hitting production later this year the still untitled G.I. Joe sequel is looking at Bruce Willis to cast the part of Joe Numero Uno, General Joe Colton. The Hollywood Reporter now says that the actor is in negotiations to play General (G.I.) Joe.
Director John Chu (Step Up 3D, Never Say Never), will continue the story begun with 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra with a mostly new cast (returning will be Channing Tatum as Duke, Ray Park as Snake Eyes and, likely, Byung Hun-lee as Storm Shadow). Newcomers will include Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as Roadblock, Elodie Yung as Jinx, DJ Cotrona as Flint, Adrianne Palicki as Lady Jaye, RZA as The Blind Master, Joseph Mazzello as Mouse and Ray Stevenson as Firefly. G.I. Joe 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on June 29, 2012.
