Recently we were served up another pitifull chapter to the Expendable franchise and this time it was probably the poorest addition yet with Stallone taking his
own concept of having some ancient washed up throwawy action stars from a forgetfull bygone era, and swapping them out mid movie for some young guns... I mean come on Sly what the hell these shitty movies were your idea in the first place you giant horses ass.
I will not go into the ins and outs of [The Expendables 3](movie:388705), if you want to see what I had to say on this travesty then head over to my review on my website 365Flicks by clickin HERE.
No sooner had the flick been released when all sorts of rumours started to surface that there where plans in the pipeline for an ExpendaBelles. I'm assuming its the same concept but instead it would be an all woman cast... I actually find this a kinda sweet idea as long as they dont cross umm all over into one flick. So I had the idea (as i am sure countless others have) to cast my ExpendaBelles flick, and thought I would share it with you good people here at MoviePilot...
So who makes my list???
Sigourney Weaver Obviously comes into my list as a replacement for Sly... I never knew there could be a proper female action star until I saw Ellen Ripley on the screen which is when we all fell in love with Weaver. I just wish she would come back to the franchise one last time.
If Weaver takes the Sly role you need some as equally badass to play the sorta just as big Arnie role. I am going with Linda Hamilton, as formiddable as she is sexy John Connor's mom would easily take down any 3rd world army in the vein she tried to Skynet.
Sly's number 2 Statham was the younger fresher leader so Weavers for me would be Michelle Rodriguez. It's hard to deny that this chick is a bad ass with roles in Machete and her bit part in Avatar where she was pretty hardcore. Put a gun in her hand and we are golden.
Next up let's fill the Willis/Harrison role, I am going with Jodie Foster because... Well I just love Jodie, lets be honest in the sort of CIA spook role she gets to have some good lines but also gets to kick some ass from time to time when needed.
So thats the top four roles sorted its time to flesh out the rest of squad then comes the task of casting some baddies...
I would be willing to let Ronda Rousey have another go in our Expendabelle spin off due to her being pretty bad ass in the last flick. I like the idea of Milla
Jovovich and Genna Davis being in this round-up. we do however need that Terry Crews comic relief and for this I would look to the likes of Rosario Dawson she was great in Sin City and has some humour going on. Just because I want to see her kicking ass on screen again im having Gina Carano who was just amazing in the Fast and Furious flick and fairly kick ass in Haywire.
You know what I know my list is getting top heavy but its my list so im throwing Zoe Saldana in the mix to because why wouldn't you.
So thats my team, I know I know I have left out some fan favorites like Jolie, Beckinsale, Mirren, Thurman, Eva Green, Liu, RothRock, Kelly Hu... But hey we will have time for sequels.
OH OH OH Baddies. For the first run out I want a tag team on the baddies side of Salma Hayek and Carla Gugino because they are both beautifull as hell and can be just as deadly. Of course they need there go to woman and i would say pluck someone from the WWE for this, like maybe umm ex diva Lita for a head henchwoman role.
Thats my ExpendaBelles let me know what you think, who is on your list???? Who should not be on my list??? Are you excited at the prospect of this spin-off??? Open the discussion...
