“The Expendables 2” opens this weekend. No doubt, it will capture the number one spot at the box office. Furthermore, a third installment is already being planned. Now, adding a little spice and excitement to the mix, it has been announced that an All-Female Expendables spin-off is now in the works.
Jumping out to take the lead, executive producer Adi Shankar’s 1984 Private Defense Contractors production company (“Dredd 3D,” “Killing Them Softly,” “Machine Gun Preacher,” and “The Grey”) has hired newcomer Dutch Southern (“Hoof Harrington’s Greatest Hits”) to write a screenplay for an all-female version of “The Expendables” franchise. Shankar’s company will fully finance the project.
Now rumors are flying all around the Internet wondering who will be cast. Some fans are speculating that such action actresses as Sigourney Weaver, Linda Hamilton, Milla Jovovich, and Angelina Jolie will be in the running. Who do you think should be on the All-Female Expendables team?
