Bruce Willis linked with G.I. Joe 2Simon Brew
Could the cast of G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes be adding Bruce Willis to its roster?Published on Jul 4, 2011
There have been lots of changes this time, though. Director Stephen Sommers has gone, and been replaced with Jon Chu. Meanwhile, there's been an overhaul of the cast, too, with very few returning from the original film (Channing Tatum will be back, mind).Production is set to begin shortly on G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes, the sequel to the not-very-well-received G.I. Joe movie of a year or two back.Instead, new faces are being added. Dwayne Johnson has already signed up for action, and Deadline reports that Adrianne Palicki is on board, too. Palicki was set to be playing Wonder Woman on the small screen, but the not-very-well-received pilot episode of the show put paid to that.The big casting conundrum, apparently, is who is set to play Joe Colton in the movie. Bruce Willis is reportedly a "top choice", although he's one of several actors being considered. Nonetheless, there's been no formal offering of the role to anyone that we can dig up right now. (Willis is set to shoot Die Hard 5 at some point, but it's looking a little less likely that'll be this year.)Paramount is readying G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes for next summer.
