Bruce Willis as Joe Colton Movie News Wrap Up: March 24th, 2012

This week:

Bruce Willis Retaliates; Richard Grieco talks 21 Jump Street 2; Michael Kenneth Williams is ODB in Dirty White Boy and Melissa Leo enters Oblivion with Tom Cruise.

1. G.I. Joe: Retaliation opens on 29th June and the marketing for the film is beginning to kick into high gear. A new still of Bruce Willis’ Joe Colton has been released and the Die Hard star appears like he’s never appeared before– bald and with a gun.

Does anybody else remember when Willis said “I got sick of running down the street with a gun in my hand”?

Forget that, I want a sequel to If Looks Could Kill (Teen Agent)!

ODB who was also known as Russell Jones and Ol’ Dirty…er…Screen Rant is a family site, so we won’t tell you what he’s called, but it’ll just take a quick google search to end the suspense.

Joaquin Baca-Asay will direct the film written by Brent Hoff, which “is based on the true story of Jarred Weisfeld, a 22-year-old VH1 employee from the suburbs who becomes friends with the notorious star and it follows their misadventures right up until the time of ODB’s untimely death in 2004.”

Apparently Dirty White Boy will be Risky Business meets 8 Mile.
