"G.I. Joe 2 News Flash: The only characters to return in the Jon Chu directed sequel will be Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow, and Duke...
Rachel Nichols played Shana "Scarlett" O'Hara in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. It seems she won't be returning for the sequel. Channing Tatum portrayed Duke, Ray Park played Snake Eyes, and Byung-hun Lee was Storm Shadow.
We reported last week that Jon M. Chu will direct G.I. Joe 2, from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. That report also indicates that Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Sienna Miller, who played villains Rex Lewis and The Baroness in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, would not return.
It isn't clear when production will start on G.I. Joe 2.
G.I. Joe Retaliation was released March 28th, 2013 and stars Dwayne Johnson, Jonathan Pryce, Byung-hun Lee, Elodie Yung, Ray Stevenson, D.J. Cotrona, Adrianne Palicki, Channing Tatum. The film is directed by Jon M. Chu.
