Gina Carano Joins That Female 'Expendables' Movie, Because Obviously

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist September 24, 2012 at 10:15PM

Let's face it, Gina Carano probably won't win any Oscars, but she has a unique set of skills, charisma and charm to go with it, and some definite screen presence, so why not put that to good use? She already kicked some major ass in Steven Soderbergh's "Haywire," is revving alongside the boys in "Fast & Furious 6" and is also leading the action flick "In The Blood." Her next move? Putting her name to an all female spin on "The Expendables."

Gina Carano

Let's face it, Gina Carano probably won't win any Oscars, but she has a unique set of skills, charisma and charm to go with it, and some definite screen presence, so why not put that to good use? She already kicked some major ass in Steven Soderbergh's "Haywire," is revving alongside the boys in "Fast & Furious 6" and is also leading the action flick "In The Blood." Her next move? Putting her name to an all female spin on "The Expendables."

Dreamed up by Adi Shankar's production company 1984 Private Defense Contractors, the Black List approved Dutch Southern -- for his script "Hoof Harrington's Greatest Hits" -- has penned the script, details of which appear to be under wraps at the moment. But Shankar makes a rather cornball comparison as to why Carano is essential to the movie. "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," he said.

Last we heard,  he was "already in talks with several prominent actresses affiliated with the action genre," so it'll be interesting to see who signs next. Milla Jovovich? Kate Beckinsale? Michelle Rodriguez? But so far, this movie is off to a decent start. Look out Sly, the ladies are coming for you. [Variety
