Money talks and Paramount is listening: G.I. Joe 3 already in the works

G.I. Joe

G.I. JOE: RETALIATION had a pretty decent Easter weekend. The action movie has raked in $51.7 million since it opened on Thursday domestically and another $80.3 million overseas. While those numbers may not seem huge the film has essentially made back its budget already and is tracking way ahead of G.I. JOE: RISE OF THE COBRA in foreign markets, primarily because of how popular 3D still is internationally.

Variety is reporting that Paramount is quite pleased with how G.I. JOE: RETALIATION has performed so far and are planning on adding another film to the franchise. Although many of us questioned Paramount’s decision to push back G.I. JOE: RETALIATION in order to tweak the film, it looks like in the end they may have made the right call (at least financially) and they must feel at least a little vindicated after taking a beating from most people about the film’s delayed release.

Obviously it’s a little early to know what the third film will be called or who will be returning, but I’m sure we will be getting more news as the project moves forwards.
