It has been widely presumed that "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" was pushed back until 2013 to give enough time for its conversion into 3D, but now rumor has it that the 3D retouch was not the actual reason behind Paramount Pictures' abrupt decision. Deadline has learned that the movie was postponed due to a miscalculated plot related to Channing Tatum's Duke.

Tatum was relatively unknown when he first starred in "G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra", but since his recent back-to-back successes in both "The Vow" and "21 Jump Street", Paramount moguls reportedly realized "what a complete miscalculation it was to kill off Channing Tatum in the sequel."
