She held her own with the action. Her acting, not so much. But I guess an Expendables movie, male or female, isn't being made for quality acting.

That's one. Who on earth else would be in this movie??? Cynthia Rothrock? Linda Hamilton? Not being sexist but I cannot see this being a hit.

I think it should be Milla Jovavich in the Barney Ross role to Gina's Lee Christmas and then build the rest of the cast around that

Definitely Michelle Yeoh. Also Milla Jovovich, possibly a cameo from Angelina Jolie, Uma Thurman, Sigourney Weaver would have to be in the mix and clearly Lucy Lawless

There is a bunch of female action stars out there. Milla Jojovich, Linda Hamilton would also be cool, Uma Thurman, Sigourney Weaver obviously, Maggie Q, Natasha Henstridge, Yvonne Strahovski, Megan Fox even would probably work, Angelina Jolie, Anne Hathaway, Sienna Miller, the list goes on. Obviously some of them have also done serious acting but that doesn't have to be a hinder, does it?

Oh and let's not forget Scarlett Johansson, Black Widow fighting Catwoman anyone? It doesn't even matter if Catwoman is Pfeiffer or Hathaway in this case.

I'd like to be the first to offer the name of Samantha Wright, heavyweight lifter and tinkerbell lookalike babe. Gorgeous petite number who lifts weights with the best of them.

Anyone important to this film should think of calling her up.

I would watch this. It would certainly make up for the appalling treatment of the women characters in Expendables 1.

And for someone who isn't a traditionally trained actress Carano did perfectly fine in Haywire.

Well Carano is hot, I've had a bit of a thing for her since seeing her in Haywire! Although I certainly wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of her! This could be cool if she's involved as she can actually fight!
