So that all-female style "The Expendables" is actually becoming a thing. Last month, Gina Carano was the first name on board the movie, and now another actress has joined her, bringing some geek cred to the production.

Captain Kara 'Starbuck' Thrace from "Battlestar Galactica" -- known on her driver's license as Katee Sackhoff -- has come aboard the still untitled movie. Details about the movie are still being kept tightly guarded, and all we know is that Dutch Southern is writing the script. But Adi Shankar of production company 1984 Private Defense Contractors is certainly excited about the whole thing saying, "If you spend five minutes with Katee it becomes blatantly obvious that she would pwn most male action stars." Yes, he used the word pwn.

Still no word yet on when exactly this will roll, but the continued buzz around the movie is that "several prominent actresses affiliated with the action genre" are circling. Certainly, the movie will need some bigger names to hang the marketing on than Carano and Sackhoff. [Variety]
