      Yanin Vismitananda, Carrie Anne-Moss and Geena Davis (maybe throw in a Susan Sarandon cameo), to replace the non-action Sean Young, Kim Basinger and no-FUQing-way Demi Moore.

      Pam Grier is Terry Crews? I wonder which detective made a connection between the two. Where's Uma Therman? Or Aliens' Vasquez? I don't care enough about her to open IMDB but yeh, she should be in haha!

      Selma blair, sarah michelle gellar, carrie-ann moss, juliette lewis,.... Plenty badass girls to go around. Except, it's really a question of wanting real actresses or chicks who'll take their top off but have chuck norris-acting skills. In that case, megan fox.

      Is this actually being made? Or is this just a hypothetical movie?

      Angelina Jolie deserves a mention. She wasn't half believable as Lara Croft n Mrs. Smith. Shame about the c**p scripts. Also Zhang Ziyi.

      To be fair, the whole expendables concept is golden oldies from the 80's, so Demi Moore, Basinger etc. are probably a fair shout.

      Exactly, keep it vintage. 80s and 90s heroines only please... but will someone please revoke the author's sense of humour? Those tag lines were -atrocious-

      Personally I'd go for Adrienne Barbeau into a role, along with Maggie Q rather than Michelle Yeoh. Then of course there's JeeJa Yanin and Eliza Dushku for a couple of younger characters. The film's tagline could be "It's that time of the month and these girls were p****d enough already."

      An alternate list. Big screen only (so no Buffy tVK): 12) Linda Hamilton - Sarah Conner. What a transformation from T1 to T2. Them Mom's will protect their cubs. 11) Angelina Jolie - Forget her other characters, Mrs Smith alone gets her on my list. 10) Lucy Liu - Gotta love how she runs a business meeting. She'd be my #9 except for... 9) Uma Thurman - Got head from Lucy AND pulverized the 88's. 8) Zoe Saldana - Columbiana, Losers, Avatar. That's a lot of action. 7) Jennifer Garner - Elektra. Red is now my favorite color. 6) Anne Parillaud - Can't understand a word of French but you gotta watch La Femme Nikita with the sub-titles. 5) Carrie Anne Moss - The Matrix Trilogy of course! The list got really, really hard for me at this point. 4) Jenette Goldstein - Vasquez. "No! Have you?" Nuff said! 3) Michelle Rodriguez - No explanation needed. 2) Sigourney Weaver - Ellen Ripley is my #1 tough character (man or woman) and was my initial #1 choice but... 1) Milla Jovovich - The body of work of tough gals, starting with Alice, was just too much for Ripley to overcome. I know there are lots more that could be on this list but 12 spaces made it pretty tough and these are, after all, just my own humble opinion. Additionally, I haven't seen every movie ever made.

      so this is my cast for the expendables 3 aka the Expenda- Belles Angelina Jolie leads the top female assasins to take down the powerful all female gang led by the one Miss Uma Thurman. Jolie's team Jennifer Garner as she is the female Jason Statham, the female Jet Li Zhang Ziyi from crouching tiger, the slayer Sarah Michelle Gellar, The Russian Mila Jovovich, and Kill Bills Vivica A Fox. On Thurmans team the Insane Eliza Dushku british badass Kate Beckinsale, and the Mighty Michelle Rodriguez along with Stacy Kiebler and Crush from American Gladiators. Cameos from Legends Linda Hamilton, Sigourney Weaver,Jamie Lee Curtis and Lucy Lawless.(for laughs Brigite Nielson and or Princess Leia) and for the tween audience throw Jennifer Lawrence or Kristen Stuwart in there hey did okay in Hunger games and Snow white.

      I can't believe that number one on your list isn't GRACE JONES ... surely the ultimate female action hero for the Expendables?

      For the Lady Expendables ----->> i'd have Linda Hamilton, Sigourney Weaver, Milla Jovovich, Katee Sackhoff, Gina Carano, and then either Michelle Yeoh or Lucy Lui. With a cameo from Pam Grier. With Angelina Jolie or Demi Moore as the villain alongside Grace Jones, Michelle Rodriguez, Cynthia Rothrock, Gina Torres. In the sequel i'd bring in zoe saldana, uma thurman, geena davis.
