Robert Remus aka Sgt. Slaughter Says He Originally Had Bruce Willis' Role In G.I. JOE: RETALIATION
Sgt. Slaughter himself, Robert Remus says that he was originally sought after by the filmmakers of G.I. Joe: Retaliation to have the story arc that was portrayed by Bruce Willis. Would you have preferred Sgt. Slaughter over Joe Colton?
Back in December 2011, I received a tip that Sgt. Slaughter would be appearing in G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Obviously, that wasn't the case but it appears there was some truth to that rumor. Before diving into wrestling news, Sgt. Slaughter reveals that he was originally asked to play the role in G.I. Joe: Retaliation that went to Bruce Willis.
"Yes, I was originally supposed to be the part of Bruce Willis' [as] Sgt. Slaughter but because we had a conflict in toy companies, Hasbro and Mattel, I wasn't able to do it. It's one of those things, Rock doesn't have a contract so he can do what he wants to do and he's been very successful."
