"G.I. Joe: Retaliation" executive producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura claims that despite reports, the reshoots for the upcoming sequel didn't have anything to do with expanding Channing Tatum's role.
"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," he says.
In fact this new version isn't much different from the cut that was originally going to be released back in June 2012.
"It's not much different. Literally, we shot for three extra days. We just added sort of explanation in what we did afterwards."
"G.I. Joe: Retaliation" is scheduled to hit cinemas on March 29th 2013.
