‘G.I. Joe 3’ Delayed Due to The Rock’s Schedule

Back in 2009, Paramount Pictures and Hasbro rolled out their live-action G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra adaptation, hoping for a repeat of the 2007 live-action Transformers success.

Unfortunately, building your franchise on the a busy actor like Dwayne Johnson means that continuing your franchise is now dependent on his schedule. That fact was confirmed by co-star Byung-hun Lee during a recent chat with LRM (via ScreenRant) during TIFF.


“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.”

Lee and co-star Ray Park have been in contact:

“Him and I always talk about those kinds of ideas and some other projects and what if we do some things. We always talk, but it’s just talk.”

Johnson will lend his voice to the Disney film Moana and will star in the anticipated 2017 films Fast 8BaywatchJourney 3, and Jumanji. As if that all wasn’t enough already, he’s poised to enter Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe as Black Adam, antagonist to Captain Marvel in Shazam!, scheduled for 2019.

  1. I still can’t believe the Rock is the world’s highest paid actor…I struggle to think of a good film he has been in…but that said…he is a likeable guy and there aren’t really that many bankable action movie stars around these days so I suppose it is all about return on investment.
