The action film series, The Expendables, is set to have an all-female spin-off. The first three movies boasted of a stellar cast that included Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Mel Gibson and Arnold Schwarzenegger, among other action heroes.
And now, we've learnt that the female version will feature actresses of different ethnicities, including an Indian one.
An industry source reveals that this version of the franchise will have the Indian actress in the six- seven-member cast, with Stallone and Gibson confirmed to make cameo appearances. "The makers are looking for someone who has a fit physique and looks tough," says the source.
We couldn't reach the original makers of the series, but the official spokesperson of PVR, the Indian distributor of all three parts of the film, confirmed the development saying, "We know that there is a high possibility of an Indian actress in the all-women spin-off of the series. There is a likelihood of such an association happening."
However, we couldn't independently verify this information with the original films' production house.
Speculations are rife that the film is most likely to feature some of these actresses - Linda Hamilton, Sigourney Weaver, Uma Thurman, Milla Jovovich, Angelina Jolie, Michelle Rodriguez, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Carrie-Anne Moss.
