Two live action G.I. Joe films were previously produced. 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra did modestly well behind a cast led by Channing Tatum, grossing $ 302 million worldwide. Although the $ 175 million production budget didn’t help. 2013’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation, who brought Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson into the fold, fared a lot better, at $ 375 million, while also having a lower budget. Be that as it may, the franchise has remained dormant ever since.
