Channing Tatum Talks G.I. Joe 2’s Delay

We’re still a little bit confused about why exactly the release of G.I. Joe: Retaliation has been delayed. Is it so that the studio can convert the film to 3-D? Or do film execs merely want to beef up Channing Tatum’s time on screen?

Whatever the true reason, Channing is staying diplomatic on the issue. In an interview with MTV News yesterday, the star claimed to know nothing about the matter.

“I don't know. Truly," he said when asked if the rumors of his revamped role were true. "I haven't seen the movie. I did my part and then all this stuff is going on, so they haven't come to talk to me about anything. They talk about a lot of stuff; who knows if it's the industry or the actual studio? You never know."

G.I. Joe: Retaliation was originally scheduled to be released on June 29, 2012 but studio executives delayed the film until March 29, 2013. We have a sneaking feeling that Channing’s brand new star power was too big for the small part originally assigned, but the studio is sticking to their 3-D story.

"We're going to do a conscientious 3-D job, because we've seen how it can better box office internationally," an unnamed studio exec told MTV News. "Jim Cameron did all of 'Titanic's' 3-D in post — and look how well that movie turned out."
