GINA CARANO IS THE FIRST TO SIGN ON FOR FEMALE VERSION OF ‘THE EXPENDABLES’
In a stunning and dramatic turn of events, Gina Carano has come out of nowhere to land a role in the female version of The Expendables. And when I say “stunning and dramatic turn of events,” I mean, “completely obvious casting that everyone knew was coming as soon as the project was announced.” Of course Carano is the first actress to officially sign on for this film. She is the female badass du jour after kicking Michael Fassbender and Channing Tatum’s asses in Steven Soderberg’s Haywire. And as the untitled film’s producer/financer Adi Shankar told Variety, he really didn’t have any other choice:
The awesomely named newcomer Dutch Southern is currently hard at work on the screenplay, and other names that have been rumored for this female action flick include Milla Jovovich (a surefire lock), Michelle Yeoh, Sigourney Weaver, Kate Beckinsale, Jennifer Lawrence (not a shot in hell), and Angelina Jolie (never). So, what woman warrior would you like to see in this film?
