Check out the auction site right here, and read all of the details in the Press Release after the jump.

Rachel Nichols will also be missing the G.I. Joe sequel…among others

Casting news for the G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra has been coming in fast and furious, although from unofficial sources.  Well, even though Rachel Nichols herself is not an “official” source, the information is pretty much coming from the horse’s mouth, so I’d consider this at lease somewhat confirmed.  In a Twitter update yesterday, Nichols wrote the following:

“GI JOE 2 News Flash: The only characters to return in the JON CHU directed sequel will be SNAKE EYES, STORM SHADOW, and DUKE…”

Unlike Sienna Miller, Nichols appears to have wanted to reprise her role from the 2009 film, but apparently it’s not in the cards.  Now the real question is, does that mean Scarlett does not appear in the film at all, or will someone else be playing her?  The Tweet certainly seems to indicate that Scarlett won’t be back at all.  Curiouser and curiouser…

Thanks to The Terror Drome for the heads up.
