Carano added to upcoming female ‘Expendables’ cast
Gina Carano continues to earn work in Hollywood as she finishes up Fast and the Furious 6, and moves on to take on the upcoming ‘Expendables‘ (female version). No official title has been given to the movie, but it will be based of the recent Expendables 1 and 2 blockbusters. Rumored to also be in talks to join the line-up include Mila Jovovich of the Resident Evil series, Michelle Rodriguez, Sigorney Weaver, Vivica Fox , Angelina Jolie and more.
“I don’t know how I’m supposed to make a movie that is supposed to be the female version of ‘The Expendables’ without Gina Carano in it. It would be like making Twix without caramel or Jamba Juice without jamba,” said Shankar, whose shingle recently co-produced Joe Carnahan’s “The Grey,” Pete Travis’ “Dredd 3D,” Andrew Dominik’s upcoming Brad Pitt-starrer “Killing Them Softly” and the viral Internet hit “The Punisher: Dirty Laundry,” starring Thomas Jane.
It was only last November that Carano made the break into the silver-screen as she starred in director Steven Soderbergh’s “Haywire.” Besides Expendables, Carano is said to also be attached to a film called “In the Blood.” An action thriller by director John Stockwell, being described as the female version of Taken – ironically.
