Instead, she’s available for more work and has reportendly signed on as the female lead in the upcoming G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes. Palicki will take on the role of Lady Jane in the film, which already features Channing Tatum and Dwayne Johnson, who’s set to play Roadblock.
In other casting news for the sequel, Ray Park is expected back as Snake Eyes and Byung Hun-lee is expected back as Storm Shadow. The RZA has also recently joined the film in an as yet unknown role. The other major role still to be cast is that of Joe Colton, the original G.I. Joe.
Rumor has it that the studios is looking at Bruce Willis for that part, which is an obvious choice. He’ll do fine but perhaps there’s other actors that would work just as well? We’ll see and we’ll let you know as soon as we know.
