Adi Shankar (producer of The Grey and The Bitter Bill starring Rooney Mara and Channing Tatum) is working on a version of The Expendables with female action stars instead of dudes who secrete 80’s-scented testosterone.
First Showing took the names out of my head when they mentioned Linda Hamilton, Sigourney Weaver, Milla Jovovich, and Kate Beckinsale as ideal casting choices. I’ve also seen whispers of Haywire‘s Gina Carano, Michelle Yeoh, Ali Larter, Michelle Rodriguez, Lucy Lawless, and Angelina Jolie.
My choice is Swedish GWTDT/Prometheus star Noomi Rapace (in a perfect world, Rooney Mara AND Noomi Rapace). Who’s on your ideal list of all-star lady action stars?
