?From Deadline:

Friday Nights Lights series star Adrianne Palicki will play the female lead in the Paramount sequel to G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes. She’ll play Lady Jaye and joins a cast that includes Channing Tatum, as well as Dwayne Johnson, who signed
on to play the role of Roadblock in the Jon M. Chu-directed film.  Ray
Park is expected to reprise his Snake Eyes character, Byung Hun-lee is
expected to bring back Storm Shadow, and RZA just joined the film. The
studio’s casting quickly; they need the film for next summer because the
Star Trek sequel won’t be ready and this rebooted film and World War Z
are prime candidates to fill summer slots. The big question is who
Paramount sets in the role of the original G.I. Joe, Joe Colton. I’ve
heard Bruce Willis as a top choice, but last time I checked the studio
was eyeing several actors, insiders said. Script’s by Rhett Reese and
Paul Wernick and Lorenzo di Bonaventura is producing the Hasbro

All right, I’m fine with Palicki as Lady Jaye. As terrible as that Wonder Woman pilot was, Palicki was the best thing about it, and I’m kind of rooting for her. But what’s this nonsense about Joe Colton? Really? We need Duke, Flint, and the mostly forgotten name of the original 12-inch Joes? The only way this could work is if Colton is the appropriate scale, meaning he’s 18-feet tall. I’d watch the hell out of that G.I. Joe movie.
