Dwayne Johnson's role in G.I Joe 3 to be expanded

G.I Joe is well known as the movie adaptation of an animated cartoon series but despite the fact that the two installations of the movie did not become blockbuster hits, Paramount is still thinking of producing this major movie.

It was announced last week by the company that they are thinking of a 2016 release date for the third installation of the movie. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson made his debut as roadblock in G.I Joe:Retaliation and despite the critic's reviews on his character, he still managed to capture the hearts of fans of the franchise which is prompting the director, di bonaventura to think of expanding his role in the 3rd movie. 

“We’re just starting [to talk to directors].  We’re negotiating with a writer right now, and once we close that deal—which should be any moment—then we’ll have a story locked down.  I’m really excited about it.”

They have seriously taken into consideration the possibility of expanding this role and making sure that Brother Roadblock takes over the movie.

“The last movie was really the set up, in a way, for Roadblock to take over.  Dwayne came aboard a little late last time so we weren’t able to do everything I think we can do this time, and really get a story that services what the audience expects out of him, and also as an actor pushes him into areas that you wouldn’t normally explore in a big franchise movie perhaps.”

They have not really gotten together on the script let alone decide the start date of the project but they have certainly started to talk about what is in and what should be updated and what is out.

“The hardest thing in film, I think, is to reduce something to something simple.  You want it to be smart, you want it to have all this complexity, you want to do all these things which sometimes makes it all so confusing.  (…) This time we have a very clear, very defined, tight idea that I wish I had on every sequel I’ve ever worked on.  Simple’s the hardest to get to.”

Would you like RoadBlock's role expanded?
