G.I. Joe: Retaliation producer clarifies if they upped the Channing Tatum scenes with those 3D reshoots

Jan. 14, 2013by:

When G.I. JOE: RETALIATION pushed from June 29th last year to March of this year, many were left scratching their heads as to the motivation. The theories came down to 3 possibilities: it was a shitty movie, they needed to convert to 3D, and they wanted to incorporate more Channing Tatum. Tatum had a breakout year in 2012 which made for that to be one of the most popular hypotheses behind the push.

G.I. JOE: RETALIATION producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura was recently interviewed by Crave Online regarding the Tatum Theory and gave a pretty definite answer:

"I don’t know where that started. Literally, Channing shot for - if I have it wrong, I’m off by an hour - four hours, five hours? So it wasn’t really about that at all.”

Of course we are free to cry bullshit on this, especially since the posters and trailers now feature a little more focus on Tatum. That could be the marketing department angling to show as much of the MAGIC MIKE star as they can or it could be a sign he filmed for more than a few hours.

Either way, I have lowered my expectations for G.I. JOE: RETALIATION. Last year, I was psyched to check out the movie based on the trailers. Despite slightly reworked promotional material, I have been hesitant that something is wrong with the final product based on the delays. It still seems very odd for such a hugely marketed studio tentpole to be postponed simply for 3D conversion. Something stinks here and we will all find out what is rotten when the movie finally opens on March 29, 2013.

Does that mean that he shot all of his scenes for the movie in 4 or 5 hours?

I don't like to hate on people......

but in my book,channing tatum couldn't act if he had a .45 pointed at his cranium. He's only likable to people who have vaginas........and some who don't but act like they do if you know what I mean..? Give all this attention to someone who actually deserves it.

I wonder if anybody over at Paramount is kicking themselves or actually realising that the delay may not have been that great of an idea at all. People generally weren't too keen on a GI JOE sequel to begin with, but the trailer looked really cool and got the interest level up some, then the delay seems to have killed most of that. Still hoping this turns out okay.

Was never really that excited for the movie in the first place, and the 3D and Tatum don't change things either way. I'll end up seeing it anyway. I enjoyed the first one as a brainless action film and this has Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson, so at least we have that. No real excitement, but it should at least be fun, I think. I laughed last year though when they pulled that old switcheroo after spending so much on advertisement. They must really think that the 3D is going to add a ton more

"he shot for like four or five hours"

Translation: The original cut killed Tatum in the first twenty minutes...the reshoots will have him appear magically alive at the end so he can be in the sequel.

Fuck I hate Hollywood.

Not the first movie is a classic, but no Scarlet, Baroness, Destro, Cobra Commander (maybe), or General Hawk? C'mon man! And can't I get some love for Shipwreck?

If I can see it in 2D I will.
The first film was a good laugh, but Tatum wasn't a highlight.

Tatum who?

I never understood the love for this dude, okay maybe its because I am male but even so he's not good looking enough to make up for his total lack of acting skill. Never understand how entire movies can be built around this guy. His caliber of ability is made more for twilight style epics than anything else.
