Casting rumors: Bruce Willis in talks for G.I. Joe sequel

After raking in over $300,000,000 worldwide last year, a G.I. Joe sequel was inevitable.  We have learned that Bruce Willis is in talks to play General Joe Colton,the original G.I. Joe and the man behind the G.I. Joe strike team.

If a deal is made, Willis will join Channing Tatum, Ray Park, and Byung Hun-lee, who all will reprise their roles from the original, and join newcomers to the team: Dwayne Johnson, Ray Stevenson, RZA, and Adrianne Palicki.

Now, I never saw G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra in the theatres.  In fact, I never had any intention of seeing this movie...ever.  However, my cohort convinced me to watch one day, after it had arrived on Netflix Instant and after he had gushed about it multiple times to me, and I then understood the craze for the movie.  If Willis takes on the role of the original Joe, he would add a great element to the fun tone the original created.

We'll keep you updated as news is released.

G.I. JOE 2: RETALIATION will be released June 29th, 2012.
