Bruce Willis, Dwayne Johnson set to return for third ‘GI Joe’ film, Channing Tatum ‘a maybe’

The big stars are all being locked in for another GI Joe film. Recently director Jon Chu hinted that Channing Tatum may return for the third film and now Chu clarifies his statements.

G.I.-Joe-2-Retaliation-3D-starring-Dwayne-Johnson-and-Bruce-WillisDuring an interview with Coming Soon date Dec. 24, Chu explains the rumors.

“It all gets carried away again. They asked me about Channing and I don’t know. You never know in these movies, and that’s all I said, and suddenly it became “Channing Tatum might be back.” To me, every possibility is open and we’re writing the script right now and we’re figuring everything out. It’s an extremely low possibility when you kill somebody like that, it’s pretty much it, but you never know with G.I. Joe. We did that with Storm Shadow, too.”

Johnson and Willis appears to be in.

“Yeah. I’m excited to bring in new characters and fun things beyond Bruce and Dwayne that we’re working on and some great villains, but we’re forming those ideas now. I’m really excited – it’s going to be a whole ‘nother level.”

Chu’s previous work was the Justin Bieber documentary, but he explained how he’s a storyteller.

“I love being active in world-building, so we’re working on G.I. Joe 3 right now. We’re designing tons of stuff, which takes a little bit, but to me, that’s obviously where I like to push myself and where I want to be for a long time and get to know better. To be honest, I just did the in-flight safety video for Virgin America, so to me, those things… I like storytelling, I like the idea of making stuff that’s a challenge, so if you can’t make a safety video that’s interesting and I say, “Yeah, watch this.” You can’t make a documentary about Justin Bieber and have it make money and have people watch it. “Oh, yeah, watch that we can do that.” Or “Oh you can’t make a sequel to that…after you just did G.I. Joe?” When someone says that you’re going to be pigeonholed–and that sounds ridiculous–that’s mostly a motivation for me to be like if you’re a good storyteller, you can tell anything and make it more interesting and I love that challenge.”
