Kate Beckinsale to lead The Expendabelles?
While it's been long rumoured that The Expendables was going to get an all-female spin-off, we finally have news that its progressing far more quickly than we imagined. Previous 'Expendabelles' rumours suggested Sigourney Weaver and Zoe Saldana were attached, but now reports are coming in that Kate Beckinsale might actually take the lead with support from Naomi Watts, Mila Kunis, Marcia Gay Harden, and Li Bingbing. Certainly a departure from the hardened, pensionable, muscles of the parent franchise.
Beckinsale is expected to play a character called 'Tegan', an ex-CIA operative and mercenary who assembles and leads the team on their mission while Watts will play Nancy, a guns and munitions specialist. It's also been hinted that both Sylvester Stallone and Bruce Willis will be making cameos that will tie the film back to The Expendables.
