Seemingly convinced to win over the haters by packing their party with more familiar faces than Marlon Brando’s memorial service, “G.I Joe 2 : Retallation” has added yet another big name to it’s cast – one Bruno Willis. Yup, says THR, looking to join fellow hairless hero Dwayne Johnson in the John M.Chu directed sequel is the “Die Hard” fave, who has been approached to play the original Joe ‘General Joe Colton’. Nice.

Colton is the guy who, besides winning the tag ‘G.I Joe’, put together the strike force (way back in the Reagan-era).

The flick, which begins shooting later this month in New Orleans, has “G.I Joe” leftovers Channing Tatum and Ray Park battling alongside new recruits Adrianne Palicki, Ray Stevenson and RZA.

Didn’t think much of the first, and while the second may be just as weak – it does have The Rock and the McClane so it’ll be inarguably more tolerable.

A scooper recently informed Moviehole of the sequel’s title change (from “G.I Joe : Rise of Cobra”) and dropped a few hints about the flick’s plot :

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.
