All Female “Expendables” On The Horizon
Even though Expendables 3 is slated to be the last bash for Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Jason Statham and the gang, further adventures could still be on the way.
During a red carpet event to third adventure in the hit series, producer Avi Lerner told The Hollywood Reporter that ExpendaBelles, a female spin off, is targeted for production early next year.
“We are writing the final lines of the script,” Lerner told the trade. “We’ve got some ideas about who will be in it.”
In keeping with Expendables tradition, this new phase of the franchise will comprise of actresses who are longtime action movie veterans. Nothing is set in stone on the casting front, but the names Milla Jovovich and Cameron Diaz have been bouncing around. Also, Stallone recently revealed that he would like Sigourney Weaver, who eliminated many other worldly nasties in four Alien movies, to head up the team.
Australian filmmaker Robert Luketic, who directed Legally Blonde, is directing from a script written Karen McCullah and Kirsten Smith. The duo, incidentally, were also the the writing team behind Legally Blond.
