Gina Carano to Topline Female EXPENDABLES Movie

Just a short while ago we announced the production of a female version of The Expendables Now, we have word that up-and-coming action star Gina Carano (Haywire) is set to topline the untitled picture.  Carano was briefly mentioned in our fantasy cast for Adi Shankar’s production, which Dutch Southern is writing. The former American Gladiators star certainly has the goods to be the face of the ladies’ version of the franchise, but it would be a missed opportunity not to include some of cinema’s classic action heroines.  Hit the jump to see what Shankar had to say about Carano joining the picture.

Variety reportsgina-carano-female-expendables that Shankar is also in talks with several unnamed actresses prominent in the action genre, but is thrilled to have Carano on board, saying:

“I don’t know how I’m supposed to make a movie that is supposed to be the female version of ‘The Expendables’ without Gina Carano in it. It would be like making Twix without caramel or Jamba Juice without jamba.”

Carano is an excellent choice to build the franchise around, but the faces of the male version of The Expendables were the famous action stars we’d grown to know and love.  Here’s hoping Shankar is able to round up some good old fashioned 80s, 90s and 00s action talent to go along with the new blood.

Carano can next be seen in The Fast and the Furious 6 (see a set photo with co-star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson here) and is also attached to star in John Stockwell’s Taken-esque action-thriller In the Blood.

    …. Dear Santa

    Yeah, way to pick an actress that is so bad, and so incapable of inflecting any type of emotion in her voice, that her entire role for Haywire was dubbed over. Sigourney Weaver, Jamie Lee Curtis, Linda Hamilton, hell even Pam Grier Ms. Foxy Brown herself would have been better for the lead. Too bad Expendables 2 used the best action, Kung Fu woman of them all, Michelle Yeoh.

  • ScaredForMovies

    No offense to Gina Carano but I think this cash grab has already taken a mis-step. The Expendables was built around blockbuster action stars like Sly, Dolph, Jet Li, and Statham. Then they got new guys like Terry Crews & Randy Couture(who is a UFC legend). They also had Bruce & Arnold in cameo’s. For a project like this you build around someone like Sigourney Weaver, Uma Thurman, Kate Beckinsale, or Milla Jovovich and go from there. Use someone like Lucy Lawless for the villain. I’m not saying Carano doesn’t fit but she should have a more secondary role like Mr. Couture.

    ZZZZZZ.
    Haywire was a POS! She is overrated trash. Yeah she has big boobs but so effing what.

  • Danny

    I thought the title said “Gina Carano goes topless for Expendables movie” the first time I glanced at it. =’[

  • Strong Enough

    serious with this? lmao no one is going to watch this crap

    • Skadistewart

      umm.. practically every heterosexual male is methinks.

      • Strong Enough

        you do know that practically all the characters are going to Stallone’s age right? lmaoo

  • Cliff Stevens

    Will she be naked? All the The Lady Expendables should have a nude shower scene. Just saying. And let’s get used to calling it The Lady Expendables because I’m not watching it if its called something else, and if there is no nude shower scene with Jolie, Yeoh, Hamilton, Weaver, Jovovich, Lawless, Fox, Rothrock, Barrymore and Rodriguez. I don’t care how old they are, strip them and wet them down.

    i dont really understand how she can be the equivalent of Sylvester Stallone in this female-esque version of Expendables. I mean she was in ONE movie in the lead, and it flopped…
    I’d love to see Linda Hamilton head the team or even Angelina Jolie- you know, someone who has the shit to backup their status…
    Don’t get me wrong- Gina Carano LOOKS gorgeous, but if she can’t act..what’s the point.

    Dangit Collider, when you have a headline that reads “Gina Carano Topl” the last three letters are supposed to be e-s-s. So close yet so far.

    Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor in Terminator 2 is already a bigger badass than Gina Carano or, for that matter, half of the male Expendables cast.

    I think it’s telling that Adi Shankar used juice and candy as metaphor’s to show Carano’s necessity for the franchise. Namely, that he doesn’t see these women as actual badasses, but rather sugary window dressing on explosions and male actors.

    Renee O’connor and Lucy Lawless– they are still both beautiful and can still do the stunt work..yeah baby———best sexy duo yet………

    If they are going to make a female expendables film I think perhaps Angelina Jolie should be the one in charge and the film should really have Cynthia Rothrock in it because she can really kick ass. Also it would be good at a later stage to make a film starring the expendables (men) and the expendables (ladies) in the same blockbuster. This would be a fantastic achievement to see all these stars in one film.
