Katee Sackhoff talks all-female Expendables

“There’s a lot of strong women”

Adi Shankar’s “all-female Expendables” project has been moving gradually closer to fruition, with Katee Sackhoff one of the first names to sign on the dotted line for the forthcoming action fest.

Sackhoff has been talking about the film during a recent interview with Collider, and according to her, the completed lineup will be a sight to behold.

“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,” she continues. “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.”

Who else do you want to see cast in the film? Tell us, below!

      I sure wish people would quit referring to this as the "Female Expendables..." When you do, it's clear you have no idea what the Expendables IS. It's action movie ICONS....LEGENDS. Not just a bunch of a*s-kickers. What makes it interesting is their roots in the 90s, 80s and even SEVENTIES. This "female" movie is NOT going to be an Expendables, that's absolutely impossible.

      They could do Fox Force 5 and get Tarantino to direct. In some other universe.

      I hope this next movie is based on the Project Athena book by Brad Thor. I would also like to see Zoe Bell cast as the villain so she can go mano- a- mano against Gina Carano!
