Deadline reports that Dwayne Johnson is in talks to play the character Roadblock in Justin Chu’s 3D sequel G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes. The site also adds that Channing Tatum is likely to reprise his role as Captain Duke Hauser.
G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes has a current release date of August 10, 2012, but Deadline notes that date could be pushed up due to a likely delay for Paramount’s Star Trek sequel:
“The picture has become an important one for Paramount, which will have to scratch the Star Trek sequel from its summer 2012 schedule and will likely put this film in its place.”
