The Expendabelles is hoping to capture some of that The Expendables franchise magic. As The Expendables 3 is prepping to hit theaters August 15, news has arisen about the female-centric version that is currently in pre-production.
Producer Sylvester Stallone has hired a director, Robert Luketic, and now we have a rough synopsis of the movie that features an all-female cast ready to kick butt like their male counterparts did, most recently in The Expendables 2.
Prepare yourself for the plot for The Expendabelles:
“When America’s Navy SEALs are wiped out trying to penetrate the island lair of a deadly despot who has captured one of the world’s top nuclear scientists, it becomes clear that there is no such thing as the right man for the job and that this is a mission so impossible that only women can handle it. The only way in: some of the world’s deadliest female operatives must pose as high-class call-girls shipped in by private plane to satisfy a dictator -- and instead save the scientist and the day.”
Okay, we love the idea of an all female cast kicking butt as bone crunching as the men. But, you mean to tell us that the only plot vehicle available was to have them go undercover as high class call girls? Sorry, you’re going to have to do better than that!
So far no names have been attached to the flick, and now with this premise, we’re not sure who will join in.
Why not watch The Expendables online and see how this whole franchise got started.
