Some found Sylvester Stallone's idea for “The Expendables” quite hilarious but most considered its realization good enough to warrant a sequel. A female version of the film is now in the works, Variety reports.
“The Expendables 2” is just about to drop in theaters all over the world, with critics praising it for managing to deliver there where its predecessor did not.
A new film on the same model is in the works, replacing the cast with an all-female one.
“Adi Shankar's banner 1984 Private Defense Contractors has tapped Dutch Southern to write an all-female riff on the star-studded action franchise,” Variety says.
“Shankar ('The Grey') will produce for 1984 Private Defense Contractors, which plans to fully finance the 'Expendables'-inspired project. Company is already in talks with several prominent actresses affiliated with the action genre,” adds the same report.
