Katee Sackhoff On An All Female Version Of ‘Expendables’
Soon you shall get to see a film which is being dubbed as “an all-female Expendables”. The former Battlestar Galactica actress Katee Sackhoff has signed on to star alongside Gina Carano in the film. Sackhoff revealed that nothing concrete has materialized, as far as the script is concerned. “I am attached to it, but things always happen. If a script got delivered and was absolutely horrible, then you figure things out,” Sackhoff said. “But, I can’t imagine, with everyone that [producer] Adi Shankar is bringing around the project, that it’s going to be bad.”I really put a lot of faith in him and his eye for detail. I’m a big fan of Gina, and there’s a lot of strong women”.
She went on to explain that Shankar’s vision for the film is to have a cast of women who are not typically petite, but plausibly strong action stars. Sackhoff also added, “when… he pitched the women that he wanted in the movie, these are not your 5 foot 2, skinny girls. These are the girls that can actually kick some ass, which made me excited. And they are different types of girls. I haven’t seen the Expendables movies, but not every one of us has the same fighting style and we’re all different body types. It’s believable that we could all kick some ass. I’m really looking forward to it”.

Allegedly the producers’ wish list included Sigourney Weaver, Linda Hamilton, Cynthia Rothrock, Carrie Ann Moss, Michelle Rodriguez and Summer Glau, but as of now only Sackhoff and Carano have signed on the dotted line. In fact, rumors are really rife about Linda Hamilton and Pam Grier being a part of the film.
For the uninitiated, Katee Sackhoff is best known for playing Captain Kara “Starbuck” Thrace on the Sci Fi Channel’s television program Battlestar Galactica. She has also starred in the horror-thriller White Noise 2: The Light and the eighth season of 24 as Dana Walsh. Sackhoff has also been cast as Dahl, a Nordic mercenary hired to track down Vin Diesel’s Riddick in The Chronicles of Riddick: Dead Man Stalking. In the fall of 2010, Sackhoff joined the cast of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation as Detective Reed, a smart investigator who does not do well with sensitivity.
