Opening this Thursday is director Jon M. Chu’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation. The sequel’s story finds the Joes disbanded and outnumbered as they must square off against not only the Cobras, but also threats within their own government. G.I. Joe: Retaliation stars Dwayne Johnson, Bruce Willis, Channing Tatum, D.J. Cotrona, Elodie Yung, Ray Park, Byung-hun Lee, Ray Stevenson, Walton Goggins, RZA and Adrianne Palicki. For more on the film, here’s clips, images, on set interviews, and all our previous coverage.
While some had issues with the first G.I. Joe movie, most would agree the casting of Byung-hun Lee as Storm Shadow and Ray Park as Snake Eyes was dead on. So when Paramount decided to make the sequel and bring in a lot of new actors, I was extremely happy they kept Lee and Park. The other day I did an exclusive phone interview with Lee to help promote the film. We talked about his reaction to the finished film, 3D, the action sequences, what it was like having the world premiere in Korea, his preparation process, Red 2, doing action scenes with Bruce Willis, and a lot more. Hit the jump for what he had to say.
