Willis & Stallone Still In Female Expendables Spin Off?


I would’ve thought that the female Expendables spin off was dead in the water considering what happened during the summer.  Although maybe not, since despite the PG-13 rating, negative word of mouth and pirate leaking, The Expendables 3 grossed over $200 million in theatres.  Also, says plans are still lined up for the movie.

“The anticipated female-led Expendables spin-off EXPENDABELLES is making some big casting moves. We’re hearing that Millennium has offers out to Naomi Watts, Li Bingbing, Marcia Gay Harden, Chris Evans, and Alan Rickman. Plus, Expendables stars Sylvester Stallone and Bruce Willis are officially reprising their roles in the spin-off, confirming the connection between the original franchise and the new installment. Expendabelles follows a team of former female secret agents who are brought together for a covert hostage rescue mission. Watts, Li, and Harden would all play members of the mercenary team. Robert Luketic is on board to helm, with a script from Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith (writers of Legally Blonde, which Luketic also directed). Stallone is producing alongside Avi Lerner, Heidi Jo Markel, Julie Kroll, and Trevor Short.”

My bullshit radar went off with Chris Evans.  Then I remembered that the same source alleging this was deemed to be putting out rumors from an ‘alternate universe’, according to director Justin Lin when they maintained that he’d be directing a Lethal Weapon reboot starring Chris Hemsworth, back in May this year.

Nevertheless I can say that at least in Q1 2014, Bruce Willis and Sylvester Stallone were lined up for cameos in a female Expendables spin off, not titled ExpendaBelles – a name just commonly attached to it by the ‘net.  Still up in the air then I suppose…
