Movie Description(Click Here To Hide)
The sequel to 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Retaliation features the G.I. Joe Team coming into a conflict with Zartan (Arnold Vosloo), Storm Shadow and Firefly (Ray Stevenson) all serving under the newly released Cobra Commander. Zartan (who is last seen in disguise as the President of the United States) frames all G.I. Joe operatives as traitors and wipes most of them out in a sneak attack, leaving only Roadblock, Snake Eyes, Flint, and Lady Jaye. Zartan and the Commander now have all the world leaders under Cobra's control, with warheads headed towards innocent populaces. Badly beaten, out numbered, and outgunned the Joes make a desperate plan to expose the truth and stop Cobra from taking over the world. Starring Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock and Adrianne Palicki as Lady Jaye.

Jon M. Chu would take 'G.I. Joe 3' to the ''next level''.

The 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' director would love to reunite with the cast - including Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Adrianne Palicki and D.J. Cotrona - to make a third movie if the sequel is successful and promises that the next installment would be much more high octane.

He told BANG Showbiz: ''You know, it would be an honour [to do it], if fans went out to see it [this time]. And man I'd love to [make another one]. We have a lot of foundation with the characters here, so it would be really fun to take to the next level.''

The director - who took over the franchise from Stephen Sommers, who helmed 2009's 'G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra' - explained that 'Retaliation' is a partial reboot to the film series and thus features lots of expository scenes, but has high hopes for the proposed follow-up.

Chu said: ''Because we're kind of a sequel but not a sequel, reinvention and introducing new characters, we had to serve a lot of things to get the audience to connect the dots with the old 'G.I. Joe' and what we are now.

''But now it's all tied together, I'd love to see [villain] Cobra be the ultimate villain and go crazy. I'd love to see some other villains come in to this as well, and other heroes come in to this. Just continue to build this giant world.''

'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' is out now.
