Speaking to Standart, producer Avi Lerner spoke about the female-themed spin-off of The Expendables franchise, currently titled ExpendaBelles.
According to Lerner, some stars in talks for the film include Meryl Streep, Cameron Diaz, and Milla Jovovich. The film will be shot in Bulgaria.
Lerner stated: "The action movie will be spectacular – and in nothing inferior to the three male movies of the 'The Expendables.' There will be battles, special and visual effects and stunts - the spectacle will be equivalent to what Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Bruce Willis and Jean Claude van Damme have done ... Two excellent screenwriters are already working on the picture. Now we are in search of a female director."
The film was written by Legally Blonde writer McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith. The story will take place in Brunei, with the ladies facing off against the villain in one world's richest countries
Lerner also stated he is in negotiations with other actresses for roles in the film.
