Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura and director John Chu have decided to bring in new characters to replace prior ones to rebuild the G.I. Joe franchise. In talks to join Channing Tatum in the sequel is Dwayne Johnson.
Johnson would portray the character Roadblock, a heavy hitter and machine gunner for the team. It’s a perfect fit for Johnson, and his recent success with Fast Five shows that he can bring interest in a new G.I. Joe film. And he practically is the epitome of charisma onscreen — who doesn’t want to see Dwayne Johnson own the scene and kicking ass left and right?
