G.I. Joe: Retaliation: Director Talks About Scenes
The outcry was huge after it was announced that G.I. Joe: Retaliation, despite filming being wrapped, was delayed several months because the studio wanted to convert the conventionally shot film into 3D. Apart from that, there seems to be a bunch of unused material left as director Jon M. Chu revealed in an interview with Collider.
On the one hand, the sheer mass of filmed scenes called for a selection process in postproduction and on the other hand, strict MPAA regulations forced Chu to tone some things down for the desired PG-13 rating. With the film now being released in cinemas, Chu goes through the different cuts and looks for deleted scenes that could end up on the home video releases. With a huge success at the worldwide box office that prompted the studio to greenlight a third film already, there might be the strategy to increase sales for the DVD/BD even further by putting a longer cut on there. If that manifests itself to a fact, we can only hope that the PG-13 censorship will be taken back, as well.
