Yes, seems like it really is happening!! After a year of going back and forth – Millennium Films, the company behind The Expendables, The Expendables 2 and 3, are working on a spin-off titled “The ExpendaBelles”. It was also revealed that Avi Lerner will produce it and Trevor Short will be the executive producer.
So far, Meryl Streep, Cameron Diaz and Milla Jovovich are in talks to star in the movie, which will be filmed in Europe. Further to that, Lerner was quoted as saying “The action movie will be spectacular – and in nothing inferior to the three male movies of the “The Expendables” There will be battles, special and visual effects and stunts – the spectacle will be equivalent to what Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Bruce Willis and Jean Claude van Damme have done”
While the story is still very much under wraps, Lerner has revealed that the story will be set in Brunei and a female director will be taking this movie on.
Negotiations are still underway with a number of other female actresses; however, their names have yet to be released.
Keep tuned for more information.
