I grew up on G.I. Joe and, despite some fan backlash, I loved 2009’s ‘G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra’. Since the sequel was announced, I’ve been following the news like a hawk.
Yesterday, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson sent out the following tweet via his Twitter page:
The tweeted link was this image of Johnson as Roadblock from the upcoming ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’.
Johnson definitely has the look for the machine-gun toting chef Roadblock. He will be joining returning G.I. Joe stars Channing Tatum (Duke), Ray Park (Snake-Eyes), Byung-hun Lee (Storm Shadow) and Arnold Vosloo (Zartan) along with recently added Adrianne Palicki (Wonder Woman) as Lady Jaye and Ray Stevenson (Punisher) as Firefly.
‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’, directed by Jon Chu and written by ‘Zombieland’ scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, is set to release June 29, 2012.
