Dennis Quaid ready for a G.I. Joe sequel, with one condition

Dennis Quaid, who played Gen. Hawk in this summer's hit G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, told us exclusively that he's ready for the sequel. "I'm definitely on board if they do another one," Quaid said in an exclusive interview. "I don't know if they have a script yet, but I'm definitely interested."

Fans may have had some issues with Stephen Sommers' summer blockbuster G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, but the hard, cold facts are undeniable: That "real American hero" has raked in almost $300 million this summer, and Joe will absolutely be back for an encore.

SCI FI Wire caught up with Gen. Hawk himself today for his take on Joe's success and the possibilities of a sequel. "[G.I. Joe was] exactly what it was meant to be," Quaid told SCI FI during an exclusive interview. "Stephen Sommers really knows what he's doing, and he really hit a home run with that."

It's unclear whether Quaid has already signed on for a sequel, but he did tell us he's on board when they're ready. You heard it here first, Mr. Sommers.

The veteran actor does have one special request for Gen. Hawk in G.I. Joe 2. "I want to get out of the pit," says Quaid. "I want to ride a horse and shoot a gun. I want a horse with an accelerator suit."
