G.I. Joe 2 gets a French ninja?

06.10.2011

With Dwayne Johnson signing up with the good guys and Channing Tatum back for more action in G.I. JOE 2: COBRA STRIKES, the production is starting to gather the rest of the team.

Joining the Joes' international roster is French actress Elodie Yung, perhaps best known for kicking ass with sharp hair in the Besson-produced sequel DISTRICT 13: ULTIMATUM. Yung will play ninja team member Jinx (who, if the movie incorporates comic lore, may be related to enemy ninja Storm Shadow).

Jon Chu (STEP UP 2 and 3, JUSTIN BIEBER: NEVER SAY NEVER) is directing, and while we'll surely see Snake Eyes again, we haven't yet heard which other characters will fill the ranks or who might be the comic relief/asshole if Marlon Wayans doesn't come back.

Yung will next be seen getting sweaty with Rooney Mara's Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher's adaptation of THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO. Meanwhile, you can see her below in non-lesbian action:

If JGL isn't back as Cobra Commander i'm not really interested in this one.

What difference would that make? He was in the first one and it was still awful.

Don't they sign actors for multiple films with big budget movies like this. Now JGL, sienna miller and Rachel Nichols might not be coming back? They were the only reason to see the first film for their acting (JGL) and hotness (Miller/Nichols) respectively. Sure, if Rock is in this that might be interesting but otherwise they're gonna have a hard time getting me in that seat with a ticket.

Acting and hotness? JGL's acting meant nothing to the role. It was awful. They could have hired a voice actor for that crud. And you can get the hotness on the internet.

I'm guessing that, with everybody leaving, they'll ditch the "2" in the title and go with something more along the lines of "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Durrr Durr Durrrr STARRING THE ROCK"

My biggest probably with this sequel is that Joseph Gordon Levvitt as Cobra Commander was the best part of the original, but there's no way they can get him back now.

I really don't think anyone gives a shit about this movie. The first one was so crappy that they should just reboot the whole thing cause that's the cool thing to do in Hollywood. At least this one will be a necessary remake and not pointless like Girl with a Dragon Tattoo, and Spiderman.

EVERYONE STARTS OFF SOMEWHERE

I don't think it's fare for a second to hold the Justin doc against this director. You do what you have to inorder to work your way up. That doc no doubt granted this guy huge exposure. I say give the guy a chance. Back in the real world, this is how it works.

Being directed by the guy who directed Justin Beiber's movie doesn't do it any justice. Let alone being a sequel to a movie that stunk like shit in a pile of piss that was left for 6 months.

Remember when Disney got Rob Marshall, who's known for directing musicals like Chicago and Nine, to direct the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie. How'd that work out for every one? Oh, that's right, it was the worst pirates movie yet. Don't see this being any different.

Dude....It's a G.I. Joe movie and the first one sucked. So why the hell would you expect them to get a director that could right the ship???

Nobody ever expected the first one to be good. When it didn't suck people were pleasantly surprised. people are only saying it sucked because there have been better movies that didn't get sequels.

I never did see the original, but the fact that they have John Chu directing is a good sign. Sure, Step Up 3D had terrible acting, but the visuals were amazing. If Chu can competently capture dance scenes, he can also do action. Legendary director John Woo said it best, "I like to put a musical element into my action scenes. I shoot them like I'm shooting a dance scene."

ugh, more ninjas

as always with GI JOe in pretty much all of it's form, those ninjas always dominate what should be a military based property. Can't we just leave it at snake eyes and storm shadow?

Terrible

This movie can't end up being good, although it would have to try pretty damn hard to be worse than the last one. Seriously, Steven Sommers should stop making movies, that guy has absolutely NO talent. Oh and this: "who might be the comic relief/asshole if Marlon Wayans doesn't come back." Classic! hahaha
