Katee Sackhoff signs on for “female Expendables”

I was enthused to read that Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica) has signed on for the as-yet-untitled “female Expendables” project. The all-girl actioner has already notched up Gina Carano (Haywire), but no director has yet been announced. With the rest of the cast still shrouded in mystery, I can nominate my own fantasy cast list: 

Rhona Mitra (Doomsday, Underworld 3: Rise of the Lycans)


Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil series)


Zhang Ziyi and Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon)


Jenette Goldstein (Aliens, Terminator 2)


Sigourney Weaver (Alien series)


Linda Hamilton (Terminator 2)


Summer Glau (Sarah Conor Chronicles, Serenity)


Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess)


I wouldn’t pick Sarah Michelle Gellar, because the incongruity between her sweet-little-girl appearance and martial arts move was Buffy‘s running gag. I’m sure you can think of more kick-ass female action stars – particularly those from a martial arts or wrestling background – so do feel free to list any glaring omissions in the comments below.
