If you followed the cartoon or comics in the '80s, you know Colton as the founder of the Joe operation. He created the team, which is considered the "ultimate freedom fighting force."

Retaliation is a follow-up to 2009's G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra that starred Channing Tatum, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Sienna Miller, and Marlon Wayans. The sequel will have franchise newcomers like Dwayne Johnson, Adrianne Palicki, Ray Stevenson, and rapper-turned-actor RZA.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, G.I. Joe 2 is set to start production in New Orleans later this month. The film will be directed by Jon M. Chu and is scheduled to hit theaters June 29, 2012.
