What if they made a female Expendables?

So as usual. This post idea came from a talk with one of the fellas. This time, him and his girl were going back and forth and decided they would text me and include me in the conversation. Trust me when I tell you the list got big. So, instead of me writing out every name from that talk, I’m just going to give you my list, and the note-able mentions in their two lists. Then ill just leave it open for others to add names in the comments.

Basically I tried to keep it around 12 because I know that’s about the cast size for good guys in Expendables. With that…

Halle Berry:

Gotta start off with a bang. Halle would get in for being in a pair of Comic-book adaptations (X-Men, Catwoman) and starring in one of my favorite action thrillers Swordfish. Don’t forget she was a Bond girl too…

Sarah Michelle Gellar:

Yea, i know a lot of people wouldn’t want to put in Gellar. But, you gotta give her credit. Buffy had a HUGE cult following and birthed some of the coldest writers. Just for nostalgia sake you gotta throw her in there.

Uma Thurman:

You already know. How can you not put Ms. Beatrice Kiddo in this movie? Besides being Tarantino’s poster girl playing in Kill Bill and Pulp Fiction. She also played in a lot of action and comic adaptations. Paycheck, Batman/Robin (as Poison Ivy) and My Super Ex Girlfriend.

Lucy Lawless:

That’s right… Zena!

Lucy Liu:

I mean…

Lucy played in a gang of action flix. Charlie’s Angels (which i hated), Kill Bill, Payback, Lucky Number Slevin just to name some.

Cynthia Rothrock:

I know some of you are too young to remember Ms. Rothrock. Allow me to jog your memory if you are of age tho… Back in the mid to late 90’s Cynthia played in hundreds of american karate movies. You know the ones, girlfriend gets captured, gotta rescue her, everyone knows karate. If you ever skipped by HBO or Cinemax on a late night back then, I GUARANTEE you saw her in a movie.

Still nothing? Alright, check this.

Angelina Jolie:

Jolie has to get a spot. Mr/Mrs Smith, Wanted, Tomb Raider… She has always been the gun totter in action films. I honestly don’t know how we find it believable, but we do.

Pam Grier:

Ms Grier gets love for her role in Foxy Brown. Enough said.

Michelle Yoeh:

She gets a plug for starring in numerous Kung-Fu films. Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and Super Cop to name my favorites.

Linda Hamilton:

Yes! Sarah Connor! She’s who I would want to be the villan. Either her or…

Sigourney Weaver:

That’s right, Ripley. An absolute must have cast mate if they created this movie.

There you go. Who did I leave out? Hit the Comments section with the names.

  1. Charlize Theron’s brutal killer character from Monster. She is one of the most expressive and endearing actresses in modern film. Zhang Ziyi from Crouching Tiger as well… beautiful, deceitful and well trained. (two pretty Asian girls! Sweet!) Jamie Lee Curtis from True Lies. Unassuming house wife thrown into trouble? Having a comedic response to Arnie? She Made that movie! Milla Jovovich from Fifth Element AND Resident Evil franchise (this may be the G.O.A.T.) LAST BUT NOT LEAST… Sandra Bullock! SPEED YO! Best list though! Good Job!
