Fans patiently awaiting the arrival of "G.I. Joe 3" might be in for more delays.
Although it's been three years and counting since the release of "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," Storm Shadow actor Byung-Hun Lee has revealed production of the planned Paramount Pictures sequel is being held up by the schedules of the cast -- and one star in particular.
"I heard from the studio that there's a possibility to do the third one, but I think they're waiting for the actors' schedules." he told LRM. "They're arranging the schedules for the actors, especially Dwayne Johnson."
Johnson, who featured prominently in the 2013 film as Roadblock, became the de facto star of the franchise, supplanting previous lead Channing Tatum. So far, there are few details about "G.I. Joe 3," although D.J. Caruso is likely to direct.
Johnson has been keeping himself busy, starring in the action-comedy "Central Intelligence" and the HBO series "Ballers," recording his voice role in Disney's upcoming "Moana," and shooting "Baywatch" and "Fast 8." Also on his plate are "Journey 3: From the Earth to the Moon" and its sequel, "Jumanji," "San Andreas 2," "Rampage," "Doc Savage" and "Shazam!"
