G.I. Joe 2 Casting

G.I. Joe 2 Casting

Casting appears to be continuing for the sequel to the Stephen Sommer’s directed film ‘G.I. Joe’ with some rumours speculating that veteran actor Bruce Willis is in talks to join the project.

Willis appeared on screens in 2010 in the comic book adaptation ‘Red’, and has a number of projects currently in the post-production and pre-production phases of development.

It is rumoured that Willis is being considered for the role of General Joseph Colton, whom fans would recognise as a character from the comic book series rather than the animated series. General Colton is regarded as the first G.I. Joe established as the ultimate freedom fighting force by President John F. Kennedy in 1963.

The film is expected to begin shooting mid 2011 with a scheduled release date of late June 2012.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
