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.
