All female version of The Expendables

Posted on August 20, 2012 at 10:03 am by David "Snackbar" Edmundson


With the Expendables 2 doing well at the box office, it’s no surprise that they are looking for a way to keep the ball rolling. Rumors are swirling about plans to bring an all female version of the popular action franchise to life. Producer Adi Shankar (The Grey) is said to be working on assembling a list of candidates.

Expendables 2 director Simon West likes the idea telling Total Film;

“I like the idea of seven or eight women mercenaries, it would be Angelina Jolie, Cameron Diaz, Milla Jovovich, the list goes on. Helen Mirren, Jamie Lee Curtis would be great.”

Seems like a decent list. If I had to pick a team of 7 female heroines in the vein of The Expendables, mixing classic and modern female action stars, I’d go with;

Sigourney Weaver
Linda Hamilton
Milla Jovavich
Lucy Lawless
Uma Thurman
Michelle Rodriguez
Kate Beckinsale

What’s your list? Let us know in the comment section below.

      Pass on Rodriguez, but I like the idea of Angelina Jolie. She has done well in her action roles.

      I would include Sarah Michelle Gellar. She kicks major booty.

    • Gina Torres would be awesome. She was a serious bad ass on Firefly.

    • Darth Shiva

      I would include Summer Glau and Lena Headey. They did great in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Summer Glau was fun in Firefly and Serenity when she was kicking ass.
