Dwayne Johnson continues his franchise piggybacking with news from Slash Film that the Faster star has announced on Twitter that he’ll be playing the role of Roadblock (sounds like an apt description of his muscular build) in next summer’s sequel to G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.

He’ll join the original’s Duke, Channing Tatum, who looks to be one of only a small handful returning from the first film (even director Stephen Sommers has been replaced by Step Up helmer Jon M. Chu). According to The Hollywood Reporter, the tentatively titled G.I Joe 2: Cobra Strikes also has rapper-turned-actor RZA in negotiations to join the crew too.

It’s a safe bet that Johnson will bring that same hilariously knowing brand of heroics to this production which made the fifth Fast & Furious film so thoroughly entertaining. Wonder what other action properties he could potentially make an appearance in and reinvigorate?
