- G.I. JOE 2, PRODUCER SPEAKS
MTV has posted an interview with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura in which he talks more about G.I. Joe 2, on their site.
It was reported however that di Bonaventura left the franchise in outrage of Jon Chu being signed on to direct the franchise, even though the young director is inexperienced in the action genre, mainly doing dancing films (Step Up 3D). It would seem now that the director has made a mends with the studio and it looks like he will be set to produce once again.
He told the MTV that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's character Roadblock is a "full-on lead role... In a way, he and Snake Eyes, their stories are really dynamic and very important."
Di Bonaventura added, "The ninja fans are going to love it. There's a tremendous amount of it. What's interesting is, we both have that going on in the Snake Eyes story, but we've found a way to bring that element into the Joes' story. I think anybody who's a fan of dark, in the middle of the night [action with] a dangerous foe arriving, this is a movie for you."
We will keep you posted as this develops.
