'G.I. Joe 3' Already In The Works

Less than a month after its release, G.I. Joe: Retaliation passed the $154-million mark its 2009 predecessor set for foreign box office sales, according to Box Office Mojo. The dollar amount is even more impressive considering the dismal 28-percent approval rating from Rotten Tomatoes, a nine-month delay for re-shoots and a shotty 3D conversion during post-production.

With its action figures, funny pictures, online games and toys flying off the shelves, G.I. Joe holds its place as a popular franchise. The movie did so well that a G.I. Joe 3 is already in the works. Variety magazine reports that Paramount Pictures plans to move forward with a third installment to the Hasbro franchise, hoping to carry the success of the first two movies across a complete trilogy.

No official word on an expansion to the existing cast or change in direction, but expect Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson to return with bigger explosions, badder villains and all-around more 'Merica.
