|"I'm not dead yet, y'alls!"|
“That is a complete rumor. I don’t know where that started. Literally, Channing shot for - if I have it wrong, I’m off by an hour - four hours, five hours? So it wasn’t really about that at all.”You'll notice, he doesn't specifically dispute whether the reshoots at least partially involved flipping Duke from "dead" to "not dead." Four, five hours seems long enough for an epilogue with Dwayne Johnson's Roadblock and Duke downing brewskies as the latter convalesces following a near-death experience in the early goings that waylays him for the bulk of the action. That would let them skate by with minimal tinkering for this flick while still keeping Duke (and Tatum, still under-contract) available for Joe 3. Makes sense to me, but I guess we'll all find out when G.I. Joe 2 makes its much-delayed, 3D-infused debut March 29.
