Sly Stallone has his eyes on Sigourney Weaver for the planned spin-off of The Expendables, The Expendabelles (see what they did there?)
The all-female version of the action franchise is planned to start filming next year, as producer Avi Lerner promised at the premiere of The Expendables 3 this week:
We are writing the final lines of the script, we’ve got lots of ideas about who is going to be in it.
Though no one else is yet to be named, Stallone apparently has his heart set on Weaver for his on-screen wife, and hinted that the plot could revolve around a messy divorce: "she'd get the house, the kids and my mercenaries!"
Always the liberal thinker, Stallone raised a few serious questions about having an all-female cast:
With The Expendabelles we’ve got a situation where we’re in unchartered waters. Do we put all women actresses together, would that really work? Or do we have some women who are actually really known to be tough fighters?
Whether putting "all women" actresses together causes Hollywood to be sucked into a giant urethra is yet to be seen, but with tough girl Sigourney at the helm there remains hope that the human race will be steered into safe waters.
