After raking in worldwide grosses of nearly $300 million, it’s no surprise that G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra was getting a sequel. Now, thanks to a Korean news site, we know that G.I. Joe 2 will begin filming by the end of the year.

The article (which comes our way thanks to iesb) focuses on Korean actor Lee Byeong-Heon, who played the inimitable Storm Shadow. The report declares that Byeong-Heon will “be starting the filming by the end of this year and has been contracted for the 3rd sequel, also!”

Assuming this is true, (and why wouldn’t we believe an obscure Korean news article, right?) Paramount is wasting no-time at all on moving forward with the G.I. Joe franchise. Hopefully, since there’s no writer’s strike to muck up the script, the plot will of the next film will be slightly better than the first.

In related G.I. Joe news, Dennis Quaid has told io9 that he’s definitely on board for G.I. Joe 2. Specifically, he said “Yeah if they do one, I’m there.” It’s interesting to note that Quaid’s remarks about G.I. Joe say “if” and not “when.” I’m purely speculating here, but if we’re hearing that G.I. Joe 2 will start filming at the end of the year, wouldn’t casting be finalized?

On the other hand, Quaid’s remarks came at the end of a very long interview that focused mainly on Pandorum, not G.I. Joe, so there was no really no reason for him to elaborate further. Plus, whenever we’re dealing with foreign news stories, there’s always the chance for mistranslation.

What do you think? Are you ready to see G.I. Joe 2?

  1. Sweet can’t wait

  2. If it has a better story, better CG (or better yet, less of it), and less lame humor, then I’m there!

  3. I think they left the ending of the this one veryyyyy open for a sequel. Too many things went unresolved. Especially that final scene in the movie… so yeah. Definitely I want a sequel!

  4. I enjoyed the first one and yes they left it wide open for a sequel. If they make another one I will definitely be there.

  5. Bring back the ninja who was killed near the end. can’t believe they killed him off!

  6. THanks for the spoiler warning there George Costanza..NOt all of us who frequent this site has seen the movie..

  11. Please let the Mayans be right(crosses fingers, pulls page off calendar.)

  12. Cobra Commander was not done right, The Baroness IS NOT American, Scarlett does not hook up with Ripcord, there were so many things wrong with the first GI Joe, it’s surprising that I liked it for what it was a solid action movie, but they need to make some corrections in the next movie, oh give General Hawk MORE TO DO.

  13. I say redo it in 3 years. I’ll write the script.

  14. Please f’ing fire this director and never hire him so real movies go direct a video game or something small…now try to picture ya someone doin what thy did with the hulk agree that the first movie was complete crap and do a way better job on the 2nd one. PLEASE STOP WITH GI IRON MAN and get bakc to the basics. AND WHAT HAPPEN TO GI JOE A REAL AMEARICAN HERO!?!?!?!?

  19. The first one was like my favorite movie ever! Can't wait for tyhe sequel! And the next sequel then maybe even the next!

    Sorry for the hardcore cartoon fans but Duke/Baroness forever!

  20. Storm Shadow's not dead…he'll be back that's the beauty of GI Joe

  21. The movie was fun. I was totally open minded about it, since I never watched the cartoons as a kid (that I remember), so I can’t say anything about what they did wrong. I did however play with the toys and I remember some of the names, which I found fun.

    here’s a list of villains:

    pick some. Some are already used and will be reused, but there are many others :)

    P.S. if the Cobra commander’s mask looks like the one in the picture, please don’t make it look like that, it’s just awful.

  22. This Movie should be called G.I. Blows, cause it did. Don’t really care if they make a sequal or not, but if they do I am sure I am going to have to fork over the $12.00 tickets to see it. AND PLEASE IF YOU DO MAKE ONE, DON’T LET IT BE IN 3-D.
