Move over, fellas! The ladies are setting up to take to the screen in an all-female version of The Expendables. Adi Shankar’s 1984 Private Defense Contractors has selected Dutch Southern to pen the action script. In the past, the banner has co-financed The Grey, Dredd 3D, Broken City andKilling Them Softly. They’ve also previously picked up a hitman-action spec script from Southern titled Hoof Harrington’s Greatest Hits, which was pitched as a mashup of Payback and Snatch. The company is reportedly in talks with a number of prominent action actresses, but no names have been reported as of yet.
Interesting to note though, if Simon West is trying to recruit Sean Connery it would appear that West will have at least some involvement with Expendables 3, most likely returning as Director, but don't take that as official just yet.
