RZA and DJ Cotrona are likely for Paramount Pictures’ upcoming Untitled G.I. Joe Sequel, according to a story at The Hollywood Reporter.
The film, to be directed by John Chu (Step Up 3D, Never Say Never), will continue the toy-inspired world depicted in 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra with a primarily new cast (except for the returning Channing Tatum as Duke and Ray Park as Snake Eyes). Newcomers include Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock and Elodie Yung as Jinx.
RZA, who next directs, writes and appears in The Man With The Iron Fists is expected to play a character called the Blind Master, who trained both Snake Eyes and Jinx. Though referenced in the animated “G.I. Joe” continuity, the character was never depicted in any form.
Cotrona, who previously appeared alongside Tatum in Dear John, will take on the role of Flint, whose filecard you can check below (courtesy of YoJoe.com and the collection of Corey Stinson).
