What with that equal rights thing going around and the fact that girl power is super-in right now, it was only a matter of time before an all-female version of Sylvester Stallone’s The Expendables drop-kicked its way into theatres near you. And now Katee Sackhoff has signed on to star in Adi Shankar’s currently untitled flick which involves just that sort of thing (although we doubt these woman will be the same age as Stallone and company, given the sort of results a movie like that might produce).
On joining the project, Sackhoff had this to say:
“Well, I am attached to it, but things always happen. If a script got delivered and was absolutely horrible, then you figure things out. But, I can’t imagine, with everyone that [producer] Adi Shankar is bringing around the project, that it’s going to be bad.
“I really put a lot of faith in him and his eye for detail. I’m a big fan of Gina [Carano], and there’s a lot of strong women. When I sat down with Adi and he pitched the women that he wanted in the movie, these are not your 5 foot 2, skinny girls. These are the girls that can actually kick some ass, which made me excited.
“And they are different types of girls. I haven’t seen the Expendables movies, but not every one of us has the same fighting style and we’re all different body types. It’s believable that we could all kick some ass. I’m really looking forward to it.”
Even though she hasn’t actually seen The Expendables, Katee Sackhoff somehow manages to work in nother reference to it without a follow-up point. Which is great, because now we can continue to compare this movie with that one, making everybody’s lives a whole lot easier through the use of pop cultural shortcuts. Thanks, Katee.
Anyway, how does an all-female version of The Expendables sound to you?
