As ‘Haywire’ star Gina Carano continues to establish herself as an action heroine with an upcoming turn in ‘The Fast and the Furious 6,’ the former MMA fighter has become attached to topline an all-female riff on ‘The Expendables.’
And you thought you were turned on by watching the original Expendables flicks, nation. We can get behind this project for sure.
We don’t know much else about the film yet but Adi Shankar, who produced The Grey, Dredd 3D and Brad Pitt’s new mobster movie, Killing Them Softly, is going to be producing it.
“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,” Shankar was reported as saying. “It would be like making Twix without caramel or Jamba Juice without jamba.”
Yeah, those are two really weird examples to use as analogies but we’re excited to see Carano in anything that involves her kicking ass in very little or at least tight clothing. We imagine that the film makers won’t let us down in this regard.
It looks as if even though the movie she had her first leading role in, Haywire, didn’t do as well in theaters as was hoped (After being promoted really poorly. Just saying, the movie was good but the trailer for it was second-rate), her acting talent and charisma did not go unnoticed. She’ll have The Fast and The Furious 6 coming out soon enough and Variety reports that she’s attached to a thriller called In the Blood.
No straight to DVD for this babe. Good for her.
And good for us if she and Ronda Rousey are ever tabbed to do a photo shoot together. We can dream.
