With plans for a “Hasbro Cinematic Universe” featuring G. I. Joe unveiled not too long ago, SlashFilm states that the production of G. I. Joe 3 may be delayed due to the unavailability of one of its main stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
Mr. Johnson who gave life to the role of Roadblock on G. I. Joe: Retaliation, is currently pre-occupied with multiple projects including Jumanji and San Andreas.
G.I. Joe franchise star Byung-hun Lee (who plays Storm Shadow) was attending the Toronto International Film Festival for the premiere of The Magnificent Seven and LRM sat down with the actor for an interview where discussion turned to the status of G.I. Joe 3. Here’s what the actor had to say:
“I heard from the studio that there’s a possibility to do the third one, but I think they’re waiting for the actors’ schedules. They’re arranging the schedules for the actors, especially Dwayne Johnson.”
We guess we can say that the project has hit a Roadblock. :D
