As reported a few days ago, G.I. Joe: Retaliation has been bumped from its original release date of June 29th, 2012 to March 29th, 2013.
When pressed for a simple ‘Why?’ the answer came back that some scenes were going to be reshot using 3D technology, in an effort to capitalize on foreign markets.
But this didn’t seem like the right thing to a lot of people and now over at Deadline, they’re reporting the real reason for the delay.
Warning: Potential spoilers (but since the movie is being reshot, who knows).
Apparently the film wasn’t scoring well with test audiences due to the very early on screen death of Channing Tatum’s character Duke and the lack of character development between himself and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson prior to his killing.
Well, if you didn’t think that Hollywood ever listened to the public, here is a perfect case of it.
