Is it safe to assume that Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be back as Cobra Commander? If his contract on the first movie failed to include any sequels, then I imagine it might be difficult to bring him back at an affordable rate, what with his profile being raised by (500) Days of Summer and Inception and all.

Stephen Sommers to Direct 'G.I. Joe' Sequel
"G.I. Joe" director Stephen Sommers will return to direct Paramount's sequel, an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap.
There had been some doubts about whether Sommers would be brought back into the "Joe" fold, as there were conflicting reports across the blogosphere last summer that there had been some tension between Sommers and the studio, but the alleged bad blood appears to have been resolved.
Channing Tatum is expected to reprise his role as Capt. Duke Hauser in the sequel, which is still in development at Paramount. . . .
