The cast of G.I. Joe 2 is starting to take shape. Channing Tatum is returning to play Duke, Dwayne Johnson is in talks to play Roadblock, and now Elodie Yung is being eyed as the part-time ninja, full-time finance clerk Jinx.
Jon M. Chu (Justin Bieber: Never Say Never) is directing this follow-up to 2009's moderate summer hit G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, and he plans to revamp most of the cast. At this time, Channing Tatum is the only returning cast member from the original that has officially signed on.
Elodie Yung can next be seen in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and was last seen showing off her martial arts skills in District 13 Ultimatum. In G.I. Joe 2, she will play a red-suited kung fu and sword expert who is recruited to the Joe team by popular character Snake Eyes. While it has been rumored that Ray Park will return to play Snake Eyes, nothing has been made official just yet.
G.I. Joe 2 will go into production later this year.
