MTV News caught up with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura and he revealed that the upcoming "Joe" sequel is very much centered on the returning Snake-Eyes and newcomer Roadblock, played by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
"It's a full-on lead role," he said of Roadblock's presence in the film. "In a way, he and Snake-Eyes, their stories are really dynamic and very important."
"The ninja fans are going to love it," he said of the sequel with the addition of 'Jinx', 'The Blind Master' and Storm Shadow returning. "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 [action with] a dangerous foe arriving, this is a movie for you."
Di Bonaventura added: "Rock is such a great character to have in 'G.I. Joe.' It's an amazing combination. We would not be very good if we didn't fully utilize him, so he's going to have a lot of things to do. It is an ensemble movie, so you have other characters certainly playing it out."
