As we reported yesterday, Mma fighter Gina Carano
is attached to star in an all-female version of The Expendables
. The project was announced in August when scribe Dutch Southern
signed on to write the film. Carano, who made her Hollywood debut in Steven Soderbergh
, is the first actress to sign on to the movie. “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,” producer Adi Shankar
told Variety. “It would be like making Twix without caramel or Jamba Juice without jamba.
