For those who may have missed this rather awesome news, we’ve received a Press Release from writer Russ Whitfield about his upcoming “Female Expendables” movie. Check it out below and set faces to stunned!

Action-movie veteran Vernon Wells (“Commando”, “Mad Max II”, “Inner Space”) has joined the cast of UK director Greg Mandry’s Soldier Girls.
Wells joins an already established ensemble comprising:

  •  Natassia Malthe (Elektra, SkinWalkers, BloodRayne 2: Deliverance, BloodRayne 3: The Blood Reich)
  •  Sasha Jackson (China Bigfoot: Legend of the Yeren, Blue Crush 2, NCIS: LosAngeles, One Tree Hill)

A unique action film featuring female protagonists, Soldier Girls is set in Africa and South East Asia and is in the final stages of development and moving towards pre-production. Wells is set to play a Major seconded to United Nations Peacekeeping Force in the Congo. Part of his command are the UN’s courageous Female Engagement Team. When one of his soldiers learns that her sister has been captured by rebels in the Patani Region of Thailand, Wells helps these 21st centuryAmazons make an unsanctioned rescue mission, which reaches its bloody climax in the jungles of South East Asia.

Sounds bloody great to me! Can’t wait to see a full trailer.
