It may be as predictable a piece of news as you'll ever see - G.I. Joe 3's plot will largely focus on Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.

Seeing as he's the biggest star currently involved with the franchise - and largely credited with reviving it after a middling first film - this is unlikely to come to a surprise to anyone.

What's bigger news, though, is that the film has a writer - and a co-star for Johnson reportedly confirmed.

Variety, as well as reporting on The Rock's return and role, have revealed that Jonathan Lemkin, of Shooter and Lethal Weapon 4 provenance, has signed on to script the sequel.

What's more, Adrianne Palicki seems set to return alongside Johnson. Howeverm there's no word yet on whether or not John Chu will be back to direct - though the fact that he's as yet unattached t the project suggests that it's unlikely.

Either way, it's all looking good for G.I. Joe fans - even though this writers initial, irrational thought at first hearing the news - that G.I. Joe 3 would center around the San Francisco landmark The Rock, and follow the plot of the classic 1996 action thriller of the same name - looks set to be sadly dashed.

[G.I. Joe 3](movie:908858) is currently set for a 2016 release.


Who are you guys most excited about being a part of G.I. Joe 3?
