THE EXPENDABELLES Gets A Director

Four years after blockbuster action star Sylvester Stallone blew the lid with the successful franchise male-dominated all-star debut of The Expendables in 2010, fans now have an answer developing for Millennium Films’ highly anticipated all-female initiation of The ExpendaBelles with newly announced director, Robert Luketic. Not to be confused with Dredd producer Adi Shankar’s separate Untitled all-female action film project which currently has two of its own actresses on board as The ExpendBelles is still in the casting phase, moviegoers have also been granted a look at the official logline for Luketic‘s new film:

When America’s Navy SEALs are wiped out trying to penetrate the island lair of a deadly despot who has captured one of the world’s top nuclear scientists, it becomes clear that there is no such thing as the right man for the job and that this is a mission so impossible that only women can handle it. The only way in: some of the world’s deadliest female operatives must pose as high-class call-girls shipped in by private plane to satisfy a dictator–and instead save the scientist and the day.

The film is being penned as an action comedy by writers Kirsten Smith and Karen McCullah, who wrote Luketic‘s 2001 lawyer comedy, Legally BlondeStallone and Kevin King are producing and Heidi Jo Markel, Julie Kroll, Avi Lerner, Trevor Short, Boaz Davidson, John Thompson and Mark Gill serving as executive producers. Filming is expected to commence this summer.

In the meantime, fans can catch Stallone and the gang back once again in director Patrick Hughes’s new film, The Expendables 3, releasing August 15, 2014.
