Palicki joins G.I. Joe’s ranks

By Dr. Know on July 1st, 2011

Now that her starring role in the TV version of Wonder Woman is dead in the water, Adrianne Palicki is moving on to greener pastures (pun intended); according to Variety, Palicki has been cast in the role of Lady Jaye – a covert ops specialist with a knack for crossbows and impersonations – in G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes.

Palicki joins a cast that includes the returning Channing Tatum (Duke), Ray Park (Snake Eyes),  and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (Roadblock). Additionally, RZA, D.J. Cotrona and Elodie Yung are currently in talks for various roles in the film.

Zombieland and Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick penned the latest draft for the 3D sequel, while Jon M. Chu (Step Up 3D) – news that I’m still reeling from – directs.

G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes is scheduled for release on August 10/2012.
