Remember The Expendabelles, the mooted all-female spin-off of The Expendables that the internet was feverishly fantasy-casting for a year or so back? Well, it's got a director and an official plot synopsis. And it's this:
"When America’s Navy SEALs are wiped out trying to penetrate the island lair of a deadly despot who has captured one of the world’s top nuclear scientists, it becomes clear that there is no such thing as the right man for the job and that this is a mission so impossible that only women can handle it. The only way in: some of the world’s deadliest female operatives must pose as high-class call-girls shipped in by private plane to satisfy a dictator–and instead save the scientist and the day."
Yeah. I'll just let CinemaBlend take it away from here:
"The men of The Expendables get to basically be ass-kickers, no questions asked. But the women have to pose as hookers in order to get the chance to show off their skills? The story for awhile now was that they were in talks with Meryl Streep (not fucking likely), Cameron Diaz (nope) and Milla Jovovich (tentative maybe), but who really wants to lower themselves into what sounds like a porn version of The Expendables? (Hopefully not Zoe Bell.) Who does this benefit? And Robert Luketic? Was he hired after Lexi Alexander spit on the script and drop-kicked Millennium honcho Avi Lerner? Who exactly wants to see a spoof treatment of this: men, who have been famously resistant to action films with primary female casts? Or women, who would be insulted by a female action film being treated as a joke?"
