GI Joe Retaliation Delayed 9 MonthsBy: Richard Stalker - May 24, 2012
The Rock is everywhere these days. He made his triumphant return to the WWE at Wrestlemania, he has become an integral part of the Fast and the Furious franchise, and he was cast as Roadblock for this summers GI Joe sequel. Wait a minute, not so fast. It turns out that Paramount has delayed the release from June 29th of this year to March 29, 2013.
“We’re going to do a conscientious 3D job because we’ve seen how it can better box office internationally,” one of the studio execs told deadline.com. “Jim Cameron did all of Titanic‘s 3D in post — and look how well that movie turned out.”
Seth McFarland sees an opportunity here and has pushed up the release of his “teddy bear come to life” story, “Ted”, to replace GI Joe’s release date on June 29th.
