Dwayne Johnson's action-savvy involvement helped drive Fast Five to becoming the top earner in its franchise this summer. Paramount Pictures and Marvel are likely hoping he could do the same for their upcoming sequel, G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes.
Both Variety and the online trade, Deadline New York, reports that Johnson is circling the role of "Roadblock" for the fast-tracking sequel. Fleming at Deadline also suggest that Channing Tatum is returning to the role of "Duke" though we heard that same piece of news earlier this year when Step Up director Jon M. Chu was defending his hiring as the helmer for the sequel. As you'll see in the link, the incoming director also responded to Rachel Nichols' tweets that only Duke, Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow were returning for the sequel.
The studio would not comment on Johnson's potential casting at the current time.
