Katee Sackhoff Fights Alongside Gina Carano in Female EXPENDABLES

     October 5, 2012


Action veteran Katee Sackhoff will put her Battlestar Galactica skills to the test alongside Gina Carano in the all-female version of The Expendables.  We previously posted Carano’s attachment to the Adi Shankar production and the news about Sackhoff comes as a welcome addition for sci-fi fans.  We’ve yet to see a veteran action heroine added to the cast (ie Sigourney Weaver, Linda Hamilton, etc), but the picture is building a solid young core of experienced action stars to carry what will hopefully be a successful franchise.  Hit the jump for more on Sackhoff’s addition and the reaction from Shankar.

Variety reports katee-sackhoff-expendablesthat Sackhoff has signed on to star alongside Carano in the as-of-yet untitled all-female version of The Expendables. No details have yet to be released as to the nature of Carano and Sackhoff’s roles, but Shankar was equally excited about Sackhoff’s addition:

“If you spend five minutes with Katee it becomes blatantly obvious that she would pwn (sic) most male action stars.”

I’m down with the addition of Carano and Sackhoff to the picture, but I really hope that a female answer to The Expendables’ Schwarzenegger, Willis and Stallone is in the near future.  Let us know how you feel about Sackhoff in the comments below! (And be nice, or she’ll kick your ass.)

Sackhoff recently starred on A&E Network’s Longmire as well as a key role in the eighth season of 24.  Carano and Sackhoff have a Vin Diesel franchise connection of sorts as the former will star alongside Diesel in Fast Six, while Sackhoff will be seen in the Chronicles of Riddick-sequel.  She has also recently wrapped The Haunting in Georgia and Sexy Evil Genius. Sackhoff’s currently shooting Film District’s horror pic Oculus with Brenton Thwaites and Rory Cochrane.
