The actress who was to be TV's new "Wonder Woman" has landed a major new film role in the G. I. Joe sequel.

Adrianne Palicki filmed the pilot for a proposed "Wonder Woman" TV series and appeared in a huge publicity campaign for the project before it was dumped by executives at NBC.

However, Palicki is planning on putting her action woman training to good use as the star of G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes, alongside Channing Tatum and Dwayne Johnson.

Deadline.com reports Bruce Willis is being considered for a leading role in the sequel. Palicki is best known as Tyra in "Friday Night Lights."
