â€œG.I. Joe: Retaliationâ€ opened with the second-biggest Easter weekend box office with more than $41.2 million, behind 2010â€™s â€œClash of the Titansâ€ with $61.2 million.
However, whatâ€™s more impressive is raking in $80 million overseasâ€”so whoever at Paramount decided to delay the film by nine months for 3D conversion looks like a genius now.
According to Variety, their sources have confirmed the third installment will move forward. Probably this time, it will be filmed in 3D rather than a post-conversion.
In a previous conversation with Latino-Review last week with writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, they already have ideas and a wish list of characters for â€œG.I. Joe 3.â€
So will some dead Joes be back?
â€œMaybe,â€ said Reese. â€œStorm Shadow kind of died in the first movie. So we brought him back. You canâ€™t be entirely sure if someone is dead and gone.â€
He continued, â€œThe nice thing about G.I. Joe is that thereâ€™s a treasure trove of characters to choose from. Weâ€™re already putting our heads together on who it might be if weâ€™re so lucky to make a third one.â€
Wernick then interjected, â€œWe would love to bring back theBaroness.â€
â€œAnd maybe the twins,â€ added Reese. May be in reference to Tomax and Xamot, Crimson Guard Commanders.
Well, knowing is half the battle. Are there any G.I. Joe characters on your wish list for the third installment?
