Filmmaker Simon West is eyeing actors Angelina Jolie and Cameron Diaz for an all-female spin-off of The Expendables franchise.
Action stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger show off their action men credentials in the popular film series. Now, West, who took control of the sequel of The Expendables, said that he has a few female actors in mind if movie bosses decided to create a female equivalent, reported E! online.
“I like the idea of the Expenda-Belles where it’s seven or eight women mercenaries. It would be Angelina Jolie, Cameron Diaz, Milla Jovovich, the list goes on,” West said. “It would be running parallel. They would meet up and then they would fight and they would join up and save each other,” he added.
