Carano for female Expendables

25 September 2012

American Gladiators star Gina Carano is set to star in the female version of the macho action blockbuster The Expendables.

Director Adi Shankar is putting together a no-punches pulled female cast - including the Haywire star - for the girlie equivalent of the Sly Stallone action ride.

“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, " he said.  "It would be like making Twix without caramel or Jamba Juice without jamba.”

Variety reports that Shankar is also in talks with several unnamed actresses prominent in the action genre for the as yet unnamed movie.but is thrilled to have Carano on board, saying:

Carano can next be seen in The Fast and the Furious 6 and is also appearing in John Stockwell’s Taken-style action thriller In the Blood.
