Channing Tatum, Ray Park and Lee Byung-hun only ones returning for G.I. Joe 2

A few more details about the Jon M. Chu directed sequel, G.I. JOE 2, have surfaced. Turns out only three characters from the first film are returning, so right there it appears this may tank. Duke (Channing Tatum), Snake Eyes (Ray Park) and Storm Shadow (Lee Byung-hun) are the only guys coming back, but since I guess they are the most exciting characters that’s no big deal. However, it’s sad to say but there is a very good chance we won’t see Joseph Gordon-Levitt reprise his role as “The Doctor”, he’s busy with THE DARK KNIGHT RISES and I would personally rather see him in that than G.I. JOE 2. Shooting should begin sometime this summer with a 2012 release.
Talk about a project falling apart. If they have so few characters returning for this film, it kinda makes you wonder what the point is. Oh yeah, they want to squeeze as much money from this franchise as humanly possible. Lame guys, lame.
