Will Channing Tatum Star In 'G.I. Joe 3'?
Over the last couple of months, Chu has had to field questions on if heartthrob Tatum would reprise his role as McCullen/Destro/ Duke. “I’ve been trying to play it coy on this,” Chu told Uinterview. “All of the sudden, there are these headlines saying Channing Tatum’s coming back in G.I. Joe.”
“The reality is we’re working on it now,” Chu added. “All possibilities are open, but I’m not saying either way for any of the characters, actually."
In G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which came out in 2013, Dwayne Johnson played Roadblock and Bruce Willis played General Joe Colton. In the sequel, the team of G.I. Joes had to defend themselves against Cobra and corruption within the government. There’s been no word yet on what the plot will focus on in the third G.I. Joe flick.
