The Kidd here...
It only makes sense for Gina Carano to be the first shoe to drop in assembling the all-female take on THE EXPENDABLES being pushed ahead by Adi Shankar's banner 1984 Private Defense Contractors. The former MMA fighter-turned-action star proved she can more than hold her own on the big screen in Steven Soderbergh's HAYWIRE, and she's joined the mix for the coming FAST SIX, so it feels only natural for one of the few action heroines on the scene to get involved with this picture which aims to put together a group of bad-ass women capable of matching what Stallone, Statham, Li, Crews, Lundgren, etc. were able to do over the course of a pair of movies.
According to Variety, discussions are ongoing with a few other high-profile actresses who have roots in action, which would lead me to believe that Milla Jovovich is only a matter of time now. Michelle Rodriguez would also seem like a gimme, except she's already denied that she would be a part of any such femme EXPENDABLES idea due to what she claims is a lack of action film experience to qualify.
If you're putting together a female EXPENDABLES flick though, who are you making every effort to get, in order to make this work?
