Since the announcement of the so-called “Female Expendables” there has been a lot of speculation about who would appear in such a film. Well, there is one less person to speculate about today as Gina Carano has signed on.
Carano starred in her first movie, Haywire, earlier this year and prior to that she was best known as a star Mixed Martial Arts fighter. Carano’s involvement is a good sign for the project; she is a rising star, essentially the opposite of many of the stars of the original Expendables movies whose best roles are behind them. Also unlike many of the original Expendables, Carano’s MMA background means that she doesn’t need a stunt double for her fight scenes. Her physicality brought another level of realism to Haywire.
Who else might we see in “Female Expendables?” Will we see more up and comers like Corano, or will the rest of the cast be more in line with the male expendables, long established actors such as Sigourney Weaver?
