Dream cast for new female Expendables movie

This list includes old and new actresses (in no particular order), any of whom would be perfect for an all-female-Expendables movie. What made The Expendables great was the actors were all known for their action movies, and not necessarily on current popularity, although there are a few new actresses. So I added these women because of their notoriety in action roles. Also some notable TV action stars are included as well.
