Joseph Mazzello is the latest name to board Paramount Pictures’ upcoming Untitled G.I. Joe Sequel, says a story at Deadline. He will play a Joe by the name of Mouse.
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, Ray Park as Snake Eyes and, likely, Byung Hun-lee as Stormshadow). Newcomers include Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock, Elodie Yung as Jinx, DJ Cotrona as Flint, Adrianne Palicki as Lady Jaye, RZA as The Blind Master and Ray Stevenson as Firefly.
Mazzello is best known for his childhood performance as Tim in Jurassic Park but has, more recently, appeared in the TV miniseries “The Pacific” and on the big screen in The Social Network.
The Untitled G.I. Joe Sequel is headed into production very soon with an eye towards a summer 2012 release.
