And with a mere 140 characters, Jon Chu announced that filming has ceased for G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
Over the past several months we’ve been on the business end of a stream of Twitter updates, photos, cast announcements, and tiny little nuggets of information that the G.I. Joe fandom has been eagerly consuming.
With principle filming done, now the fun stuff can begin like teasers, trailers, official photo releases and hopefully enough cool merchandise to bring smiles to our (and the Hasbro execs) faces.
I for one need to take a few moments and wish Jon Chu the best of luck in post-production with his first major action movie, and thank him for his enthusiasm, eagerness, and transparency throughout the filming process. It’s not often we get these great Twitter updates littered throughout film production, and his enthusiasm was palpable. I’ve often thought that the end result of a film was a big part due to the excitement and energy of the cast and crew. If that holds true for G.I. Joe: Retaliation, we are in for a great ride in June, 2012.
Here we go! Yo Joe!!
