From director Jon M. Chu - G.I. Joe 2: Cobra Strikes
Paramount has settled on a release date for their sequel to 2009ís G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. It looks like the action sequel will bow on August 10th, 2012. Originally, Stephen Sommers was set to return for the sequel, but bowed out in January. Paramount cast a wide net to find the right person to take over the project, and they finally settled on Jon Chu (the smashing commercial success of his most recent film for Paramount, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, probably had nothing to do with that). Chu directs from a script by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
Channing Tatum (Duke), Dwayne Johnson (Roadblock), Lee Byung-hun (Storm Shadow), Adrianne Palicki (Lady Jay), Elodie Yung, RZA (Blind Master), D.J. Cotrona (Flint), Ray Park (Snake Eyes) and Ray Stevenson as the villain (Firefly).
