Meet the Expendabelles, led by Meryl Streep. Possibly… wait, what?

October 27th, 2013 by Marc Comments

We’ve known for quite a while that the female Expendables was coming, but now it looks like it may have the beginnings of a cast and we reckon, if true, the boss could easily rival Stallone’s badassery.

Yes, according to Dark Horizons, Meryl Streep is being talked to about being the leader of the now dubbed Expendabelles (ah, I see what you did there). Now, not only is Streep in talks, but so is the long-associated Milla jovovich and now also Cameron Diaz.

This is all according to Avi Lerner from Millenium Films. He has also confirmed that he is on the lookout for a strong female action director – has to be Katherine Bigelow, right? Right – and the script is by the people behind such action classics as 10 Things I Hate About You and Legally Blonde. Wha?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
