Director Simon West is eyeing Angelina Jolie and Cameron Diaz for an all-female spin-off of the Expendables franchise.
Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger show off their action men credentials in the popular films, and West – who took control of the sequel – admits he has a few actresses in mind if movie bosses decided to create a female equivalent.
He tells E! Online, "I like the idea of the Expenda-Belles where it’s seven or eight women mercenaries. It would be Angelina Jolie, Cameron Diaz, Milla Jovovich, the list goes on. Helen Mirren, Jamie Lee Curtis would be great.
"It would be running parallel. They would meet up and then they would fight and they would join up and save each other."
Actor Terry Crews, who plays Hale Caesar in the movies, adds, "I would love to see Charlize Theron. She would be a sweet badass just doing some crazy stuff!"
