IGN confirmed this week that actress Adriene Palicki will star once again in the upcoming third installment of Hasbro’s G.I. Joe film franchise from Paramount. The news came admist an interview with the actress on the set of her next action film with Keanu Reeves, John Wick, where she reflects on being one of the most sought-after actresses for action movies, as well as her time filming and potentially starring in NBC’s television rendition of the iconic DC Comics heroine, Wonder Woman, prior to the show’s last-minute cancellation; That role has since gone to actress Gal Gadot for the big screen release of Zack Snyder’s untitled Batman vs. Superman movie.
will join what is set to be a currently developing list of actors, both new AND returning, which may include actors Marlon Wayans
and Adawale Akinnouye-Agbaje
, and actress Rachel Nichols
who starred in the first film, 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra
under then-director Stephen Sommers. It is also being mentioned
that actor Channing Tatum
, who appeared in both the first and second film, could star in the third film as well, which seems interesting considering what moviegoers saw happen in the second movie. No word yet on whether Fast And Furious 7
star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
will return, although considering that his role in the second film (with both movies grossing a total of almost $700 million dollars worldwide in the past four years), adding to the good news that came Johnson
‘s way this week on Monday evening, I wouldn’t be surprised if Paramount brought him back on board.
Holy sh*t indeed, Rock. Holy sh*t indeed. 🙂
Given the nearly year-long wait for G.I. Joe: Retaliation
between its summer 2012 date and its Spring premiere this year for its 3D conversion, it is likely that the third will be filmed in 3D as well, with Retaliation
helmer Jon M. Chu
back in the director’s seat. Snow White And The Huntsman
and Killing Season
scribe, writer Evan Daugherty
is providing the screenplay for a tentative 2016 date.
John Wick, directed by David Leitch and Chad Stahelski arrives in theaters next year.
