Dwayne Johnson Talks G.I. JOE 3; Says They’ll Use the 3D Platform “in Even Better Ways”

Though 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra was a sizeable success at the box office, Paramount decided to retool their approach to the franchise with this year’s sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation.  The studio’s secret weapon for the follow-up was Dwayne Johnson, who has quickly become a kind of “human steroid injection” for film franchises in need of a punch-up (see also: Fast Five and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island).  Johnson took the lead this time around as Roadblock, and the result was an impressive $40.5 million opening weekend with a worldwide total currently sits at a little over $270 million.  Understandably, Paramount officially greenlit yet another G.I. Joe sequel mere days after Retaliation opened in theaters.

Steve recently spoke with Johnson in anticipation of Michael Bay’s upcoming black comedy Pain & Gain, and the actor talked briefly about the preliminary plans for G.I. Joe 3.  Hit the jump to see what he had to say.

“What we would love to do with the sequel to G.I. Joe, which will definitely happen—we set ourselves up nicely with this past G.I. Joe because we really paid attention with respected homage to the mythology.  And now that we’ve redesigned that foundation of the mythology, there are many places to go.  There are phenomenal G.I. Joe characters who we can bring to life, we’re all talking about it now, and certainly [thinking about] using the 3D platform in even better ways for the next one, so, I’m very excited about that.”

Again, it’s very early stages on G.I. Joe 3 (a director hasn’t even been announced), but it definitely sounds like Johnson is integral to the planning process on the next film.  Look for Steve’s full interview with Johnson closer to the release of Pain & Gain, and click here if you missed what Johnson had to say about Fast & Furious 7.

    You’d think that because GI Joe Retaliation was such a let down in the quality department, they’d focus on improving everything else first before considering the 3D aspect. But no.

    1. Get rid of director. 2. Get rid of Willis, he looks tired as fuck. 3. Give more time to Snake Eyes. 4. Bring back Arnold Vosloo and get rid of Jonathan Pryce, he’s boring to watch.

      did you just say get rid of WILLIS? are you stupid… that guy is a LEGEND…, you idiot did you watch die hard sequels… if you keep thinking of getting rid of willies then you will die hard….

    They just need to resurrect Channing Tatum and it’ll be a kick ass movie, The chemistry between Tatum and Johnson in the first 30 minutes of retaliation as so entertaining to watch that it actually undermined the rest of the film when he died. Can anybody honestly say they were happier with that generic brown haired dude?

    ^ I like the way you think, Guns. I wish you were in charge but they probably won’t.

    Are the G.I. Joe capturing and defeating Commander Cobra? Is Duke dead or alive? Are they need to resurrect Channing Tatum?

    • MisterThrow Back

      Duke is alive, he in coma and captured of COBRA.

      1.They never showed his body.

      2.They never assumed he is dead.

      3.Joe took his dog tag cause he knew he wasn’t dead he said something like this “They wouldn’t kill they’re best man”.
