Adi Shankar is developing a female Expendables, already casting Gina Carano (“Haywire”) and Katee Sackhoff. Looks like we have a bit of an arms race, so to speak.

Millennium films, the company behind “The Expendables” is creating its own female expendables. I kid you not, the title will be “The ExpendaBelles”.

Even more odd news, they’ve hired Karen Lutz and Kristen Smith. Their credits include “10 Things I hate About You”, “Ella Enchanted”, “She’s The Man”, “The House Bunny”, “The Ugly Truth” and “Legally Blonde”.
