Lee Byung-hun Returning For G I JOE 2

In movies, death is often not the impediment that it can be in real life and because of that there is more work for actor Lee Byung-hun. Byung-hun played fan favorite ninja Storm Shadow in 2008’s G I Joe: The Rise Of Cobra, but met what appeared to be a fatal end before the final credits rolled. Despite that, the Hollywood Reporter has learned that the actor will be back for the sequel.

The film is currently prepping to begin rolling cameras this summer, though no director has been hired yet.

This should comes as no surprise as I think that Storm Shadow has died and been resurrected a couple of times in the comics over the last two decades.

G I Joe 2 is set for a summer 2012 release.
