With 'G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA opening next week, more and more information on the film is leaking out. Superherohype has an interview with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. Some highlights: On whether or not the film will rely on CGI:
"Not for the stunts, no. The CGI is really for the underwater environment and we have a giant chase scene where we go all through Paris and do some crazy stuff. The only way you can do that is with CGI."
On the possibility of a sequel:
"Well what people don't understand and it's always interesting to talk to the non-initiate of 'Transformers' or 'G.I. Joe.' Hasbro developed real deep mythology to both of those properties so it's the kind of property that naturally lends itself to multiple interpretations. There are so many different characters. Some people on the Web were like, "Why wasn't Flint in this movie?" Well Duke or Flint. Some people like Duke, some people like Flint. Some people like Lady Jaye, some people love Scarlett. There's an opportunity to do more than one film if you're lucky enough to get the first one right."
