A female version of Sylvester Stallone’s The Expendables (no relation to the project) is in the works. Variety and Collider.com are reporting that Haywire star Gina Carano is in talks to take the lead. Adi Shankar is leading the production and had this to say to Variety:
“I don’t know how I’m supposed to make a movie that is supposed to be the female version of ‘The Expendables’ without Gina Carano in it. It would be like making Twix without caramel or Jamba Juice without jamba.”
Carano certainly fits the project in terms of action and looks. However, a film to rival Stallone’s would have to feature classic female action stars. Sigourney Weaver and Uma Thurman are the first two to come to mind.
Maniacs, who do you want to see in a Female Expendables movie?
