GI Joe Cast Cut to Three for Sequel

GI Joe sequel cast

Plans for the sequel to GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra are underway, and at least one cast member isn’t too happy about it. Rachel Nichols, who played Scarlett in the first film, just broke the news via Twitter: only three cast members from the first flick are returning.

She isn’t one of them (sorry, Rachel Nichols fans). Channing Tatum will reprise his role as Duke, Ray Park will come back as Snake Eyes and Lee Byung-hun is set to play Storm Shadow.

If Nichols is correct, Jon Chu is directing a sequel that will leave Scarlett, Ripcord (Marlon Wayans), Sergeant Stone (Brendan Fraser), General Hawk (Dennis Quaid) and Cobra Commander (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) completely out of the franchise.

Box Office Breakdown: Meatballs Rolls to Another Victory

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

was no substitute for meatballs.

Many thought Willis, who hasn’t had a major role since 2007’s Live Free or Die Hard, was on track to take first this weekend. Unfortunately, his

hair

movie was considered a big letdown given its $15 million gross and $80 million budget. Meanwhile, , a remake of the 1980 hit, had no one feeling like they wanted to live forever. The MGM feature only rung up $10 million for third place.
