In addition to Palicki, Bruce Willis is likely to join the cast ensemble which has already had Channing Tatum, Ray Park and Lee Byung-hun among others. According to Deadline, the John McClane of "Die Hard" film series is "a top choice" to portray Joe Colton, the original G.I. Joe, but Paramount also listed other actors as the possible depicters.

The "G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra" sequel has previously cast Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as Roadblock, who is described as a "big guy with a big gun". RZA also lands role in the movie which is set to be directed by Jon M. Chu, and is due August 10, 2012 in the U.S.
