JJ Abrams directing (or the director from District 9 or Distrcit 13)
Tomax and Xamot, Lady Jaye, Roadblock, Dusty, Shipwreck, firefly and the B.A.T's

just look at what it had to go up ageist nothing that joe couldn't beat now if District 9 came out this weekend we could be looking at a dif story.
actors are contractually obligated to return for another film, though director Stephen Sommers is not.
There is reason to be concerned about whether "G.I. Joe" will fade quickly at the box office. The film experienced a sizable 18% drop in domestic ticket sales from Friday to Saturday, indicating audience word of mouth may not be great, despite a solid rating of B+ from opening-day moviegoers, according to market research firm CinemaScore. "Star Trek" saw its ticket sales increase from Friday to Saturday and went on to more than triple its opening-weekend gross.
Such a fate looks unlikely for "G.I. Joe," particularly with "District 9" opening Friday and expected to perform well with males, who made up more than 60% of the audience for Paramount's film. Moore said that Paramount will aim marketing more at families going forward as a result, hoping to persuade more parents to take older children to the PG-13 film. Families made up a significant one-third of moviegoers this weekend.
Despite the strong opening, Paramount still needs "G.I. Joe" to hold well on a worldwide basis, as it cost a hefty $175 million to produce and $150 million to market and distribute.
Here are the top 10 films at the domestic box office, according to studio estimates and Hollywood.com:
1. "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" (Paramount/Spyglass): Opened to $56.2 million domestically and $44 million overseas.
2. "Julie & Julia" (Sony Pictures): $20.1 million on its first weekend.
3. "G-Force" (Disney): Down 44% on its third weekend to $9.8 million. Total ticket sales in the U.S. and Canada: $86.1 million. Not great given the $150-million production budget.
4. "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" (Warner Bros.): $8.9 million, a decline of 50% on its fourth weekend. Domestic total: $273.8 million.
5. "Funny People" (Universal/Sony/Relativity): A sharp drop of 65% on its second weekend to $7.9 million. Total domestic ticket sales: $40.4 million.
6. "The Ugly Truth" (Sony): Declined 47% to $7 million. Domestic gross to date: $69.1 million.
7. "A Perfect Getaway" (Universal/Rogue): Launched to $5.8 million.
8. "Aliens in the Attic" (Fox/New Regency): $4 million on its second weekend, down 50%. A weak $16.3 million in U.S. and Canadian ticket sales so far.
9. "Orphan" (Warner Bros./Dark Castle): Declined 50% on its third weekend to $3.7 million. Domestic total: $34.8 million.
10. "(500) Days of Summer" (Fox Searchlight): Earned $3.7 million as it expanded to 817 theaters. Total gross for the indie romantic comedy is now $12.3 million, making it the biggest limited release of the year so far.

Hmm good idea who would be good at the Crimson Twins...
Marlane and Keenan Wayanes? No I am kidding!
John Travolta like in Face off? Hell Eccleson could have been nanite cloned and he could have been a better Crimson twin but his his heavy brit accent would be too over the top for them...argh I can't think of anyone who could do that part that would even sign up :(
Ok now you got me thinking who would everyone else suggest for the twins? Parris Hilton and Nicole Richie BFF?

It's nice to see the internet talking about it but everyone here is right. The internet is based on lies. Let's hope that they do green light a sequel and the stupid fatcats in Hollywood don't screw it up even more!
BTW isn't this really just about a FUN movie? What happened to people enjoying a FUN movie for once in their god forsaken lives? IT'S JOE! COME ON!!!
