Action star Bruce Willis may be the next big name to join the cast of G.I. Joe 2:Retailiation. Willis, the star of the Die Action franchise, is in talks to play the original Joe, General Joe Colton. If Willis does indeed agree to star in the sequel, he would be joining stars Channing Tatum, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, the RZA, among others. I think the addition of Willis would greatly legitimize the chances of the sequel becoming a hit. Do you agree? Click the pic to enlarge.
