Paramount Brews More ‘Joe’

Stellar global bow for 'Retaliation' spurs plans for 3D three-quel

Yo Joe! Say hello to a three-quel!

The muscular $132 million global bow for “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” has spurred Paramount to move forward with plans for a third installment in the Hasbro franchise, sources confirmed Sunday morning.

The seemingly snappy decision to make a third “Joe” isn’t surprising considering Par has had ample time to think it over; the first film, “Rise of Cobra,” bowed in 2009. “Retaliation” also was delayed nine months for re-shoots and the 3D conversion.

“Retaliation,” which is an MGM-Skydance co-production, cost less ($130 million) than “Cobra,” which rang in at $175 million.

“Retaliation” outdid its predecessor by 35% globally, thanks in no small part to the 3D upcharge. If “Retaliation” continues to keep that same lead (and it could), the film will land in the ballpark of $410 million worldwide. “Cobra” grossed $303 million globally.

One thing is for certain, however: “G.I. Joe 3” will most definitely be in 3D.
