Dwayne Johnson In Talks To Star In “G.I. Joe” Sequel

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, as well as rapper/producer The RZA, may land roles in the new G.I. Joe sequel.

According to reports, Johnson is in talks to play Roadblock, a heavy machine-gunner, who is an aspiring gourmet chef in the movie G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes.

While Wu Tang Clan member The RZA may play a martial arts expert by the name of Blind Master.

Neither roles have been finalized, but the addition of The Rock could help boost movie sales.

The 2009 film, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, received mixed reviews, while grossing $302 million worldwide.

By comparison, Johnson’s last film Fast Five, the fifth movie in The Fast & The Furious series, has made nearly $600 million since its release in April.

It was also reported in April that The RZA will appear in the upcoming season of the Showtime television series Californication.
