Deadline.com is reporting that The Rock's movie G.I. Joe: Retaliation has been pushed for nine months, yes, nine months, and is now scheduled to be out on March 29, 2013 instead of June 29.
The push, according to Paramount Pictures, is to convert the movie into 3D. The movie wasn't originally shot in 3D cameras but can be converted like The Avengers and Titanic were.
"We're going to do a conscientious 3D job because we've seen how it can better box office internationally," a Paramount studio exec told the website.
A March 29, 2013, release date would put the movie out one week before WrestleMania 29 in New Jersey, an event that The Rock said he would be participating in.
Paramount went all out to revive the G.I. Joe franchise after a disappointing first movie and is banking on Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to lift it up like he did with Fast Five.
Apart from The Rock as Roadblock, Channing Tatum and Bruce Willis are the two other leading actors in the movie which had a budget of $125 million.
