"G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" was a nice hit for Parmount Pictures two years ago, but neither the studio, the actors or the general public seemed that happy with it. With the inevitable sequel finally rolling toward production, details on just how different this installment in the series will be are coming to light. Speaking to MTV News earlier this week at the premiere of "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura confirmed that newcomer Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will have a major part as new "Joe" Roadblock and that there will be a lot more ninjas.
Regarding Johnson's character, di Bonaventura says, "It's a full-on lead role. In a way, he and Snake-Eyes, their stories are really dynamic and very important."
And as for Snake-Eyes, the prolific producer noted, "What's interesting is, we both have that going on in the Snake-Eyes story, but we've found a way to bring that element into the Joes' story. I think anybody who's a fan of dark, in the middle of the night -- a dangerous foe arriving, this is a movie for you."
