For many of us, news that G.I. Joe 2 had found a director elicited a collective sigh.  It was hard to forget the first film G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra and equally hard to get excited about the second one, but the comic geek within us still holds hope that a second installment gi joe snake eyes 300x208 G.I. Joe 2 Release Date Announced!in the G.I. Joe franchise might actually be worth watching and maybe even garner more than the 5.7 rating that G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra has on

So let’s see if you guys and gals out there get excited about this: Paramount Pictures has announced that G.I. Joe 2 will be released on August 10 2012.  Alright.  That’s at least more exciting than the announcement that Jon Chu, who directed the “blockbuster” Justin Bieber movie, will be directing the picture.  What we really need to know is which actors will be cast in the lead roles.  I am predicting the return of at least one Wayans brother.
