G.I. Joe: Retaliation opened to the second-biggest Easter weekend box office, so it looks like the Joes and Cobra are going to live to duke it out another day. According to Variety, Paramount has greenlit G.I. Joe 3. While a third G.I. Joe wasn’t in too much doubt, announcing the sequel the Sunday after Retaliation‘s release is a big vote of confidence from the studio rather than a “Let’s wait to see how well it does on DVD.”
There are no other details about the third installment other than the obvious assumption that it will be in 3D. Hopefully, they won’t clear the board again when it comes to the cast, and hold on to Dwayne Johnson as their charming and charismatic protagonist. Hit the jump for what producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura is considering for G.I. Joe 3.
