Surprise, surprise: Paramount is already planning a third “G.I. Joe” movie.
Following the successful launch of “Retaliation” over Easter weekend (the film grossed more than $50 million in its first five days of U.S. release and north of $130 million worldwide), the studio has decided to move forward with a third installment of the Hasbro franchise, according to Variety.
Paramount’s decision is a no-brainer: “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” is expected to outperform its predecessor, 2009’s “The Rise of Cobra,” by a considerable margin at the global box-office. Initially slated for release last June, the sequel was delayed by nine months when the studio decided to convert the film to 3D – a move that appears to have worked wonders commercially.
