Adi Shankar’s Expendables-inspired all-female action project is already moving gradually closer to fruition, now that it’s got two notable female action stars signed up by way of Gina Carano and Katee Sackhoff.
In a recent interview with Collider.com, Katee Sackhoff, who became famous for her role as Captain Kara “Starbuck” Thrace on Battlestar Galactica, revealed that the completed lineup will be impressive:
“Well, I am attached to it, but things always happen. If a script got delivered and was absolutely horrible, then you figure things out. But, I can’t imagine, with everyone that [producer] Adi Shankar is bringing around the project, that it’s going to be bad.
“I really put a lot of faith in him and his eye for detail,” she continues. “I’m a big fan of Gina [Carano], and there’s a lot of strong women. When I sat down with Adi and he pitched the women that he wanted in the movie, these are not your 5 foot 2, skinny girls. These are the girls that can actually kick some ass, which made me excited.
“And they are different types of girls. I haven’t seen the Expendables movies, but not every one of us has the same fighting style and we’re all different body types. It’s believable that we could all kick some ass. I’m really looking forward to it.”
