Adrianne Palicki is definitely coming back for the next installment of the G.I. Joe series.
Rumors suggested earlier this year that the former Friday Night Lights star was returning to the franchise for yet another go-around. Although she didn’t say anything about coming back for the proposed follow-up to G.I. Joe: Retaliation at the time, Palicki recently confirmed her involvement with the upcoming flick.
The actress touched on a number of topics during her recent conversation with IGN. In addition to discussing Ally McBeal creator David E. Kelley’s failed Wonder Woman television show, she also discussed her return to action cinema with G.I. Joe 3.
Since she kicked a fair amount of cinematic behind in director Jon M. Chu’s sequel, Adrianne Palicki told the website that she’s received quite a few offers to appear in other like-minded motion pictures.
“I think it’s hard to find females who can do the action stuff and I think that when people see somebody. There are only like three or four [actresses] who are in all that stuff, because it’s like once people see that they can do it, they put them in a lot of things. So yes, I definitely get a lot of scripts for action films,” she explained during her recent interview.
Palicki added, “I love doing it. I love doing my own stunts. I’m one of those crazy people… but it’s a fine line because you don’t want to get pigeon-holed. That’s why I try to do comedies or even a little independent film, just to stay above board — to keep it real, and to keep me from getting injured once in a while! I’m 30 and I feel like I’m 57 years old!'”
The actress is quickly amassing a significant number of action flicks in her filmography. In addition to G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Adrianne Palicki appeared in Legion, the Red Dawn remake, and the adaptation of the South Korean graphic novel Legion. She also appears alongside Keanu Reeves in the upcoming thriller John Wick.
The Inquisitr previously reported that Palicki tried her hand at portraying Wonder Woman in a pilot that never got off the ground. Despite the show’s failure, the actress apparently loved her time playing the iconic superhero.
“And I got to wear the costume — I should say, I got paid to wear the costume! So not many people get to say that. I’m really blessed to have gotten to do that and maybe someday down the line I’ll get to play that character or another awesome icon again,” she explained.
