Exclusive : G.I Joe 2 title change?; Arnold Vosloo returning

It’s full-speed ahead for Paramount’s “G.I Joe” sequel, with production now underway under the guidance of director Jon M.Chu. Channing Tatum, Ray Park and Byung-hun Lee return for more, with Dwayne Johnson, Ray Stevenson, Adrianne Palicki, RZA and D.J Cotrona filling some of the remaining slots. While no word on the story – though it’s said to pit the G.I Joe gang against ‘Firefly’ – this email from reader ‘Reja’ sheds some light on one element of the plot and more interestingly, suggests a title change for the film. The success of the franchise will take some thought and meditation on the part of Chu as well as the producers.

Hey Clint,

I went up for “G.I Joe 2″ this week. Now firstly, I believe they’ve changed the name of the film from “G.I Joe 2 : Coba Strikes” to “G.I Joe 2 : Retaliation”.

The part I was chasing was Ibrahim, a presidential advisor to India’s leader. He tries to talk the president out of getting involved in a very suss rescue mission and consequently backing up the united states on something… that might not be totally legit.

And we all know who the president is now, right? Who is running the country? Zartan, played by Arnold Vosloo. He’s got the world leaders all under his thumb, war heads headed towards innocent populaces, and some new heavies on the payroll to keep G.I Joe at bay.

One of the first scenes to be shot is a flashback sequence with young Storm Shadow and young Snake Eyes which will cronicle how they became what they are and their relationship. Those parts have already been cast I think now they’re just working on the smaller roles – presidents of every country; security guards; ‘Mouse’, etc.

Anyway, thought you’d like to know about the title change and all that.

No official word on that title change yet, so we’ll see…
