<i>G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes</i> Now Called <i>G.I. Joe: Retaliation</i>

All sorts of news is swirling about the G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra sequel, starting with a new title: G.I. Joe: Retaliation. I wonder if the move away from Cobra Strikes has anything to do with the fact that neither Cobra Commander nor Destro will be returning. The news comes from Deadline, which also reveals that the sequel will take the June 29, 2012, release slot that was previously occupied by the Star Trek sequel.

In related news, Deadline also reports that Joe Mazzello will play the role of Mouse in the Jon Chu-directed sequel. Mazzello is probably known best for his starring role as a child actor in Jurassic Park, in which he played one half of the young brother/sister duo trapped on the island with rampaging dinos.
