Milla Jovovich

It looks like the old dudes of "The Expendables" are going to get an energetic boost of estrogen to add to their ranks when they grease up their joints for yet another bland action outing. And it's someone who has more than her fair share of experience kicking ass.

Milla Jovovich is in advanced negotiations along with the long rumored and talked about Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes and Nicolas Cage for "The Expendables 3." Of course, Jovovich has her own mega successful franchise with "Resident Evil," and will more than hold her own along these dudes when it comes to jumping off things, shooting stuff and running away from explosions. And her insurance probably doesn't cost as much. And it's a savvy move, opening up the potential audience for his even further, given the actress' appeal overseas as well. So smart play, Stallone.

Meanwhile, the rest of the cast is your standard roster of Olds, though perhaps the recently released Snipes and Cage -- jesus, the two of them on the same set together? -- will bring some unpredictability this series needs. Or perhaps it will just be another 1980s homage that doesn't realize most of those action movies from the era were awful then and are still awful now.

Production gets underway later this summer and you'll see it in theaters next year.
