I read with profound depression that 10.12 Deadline report about Millenium Films having hired Legally Blonde screenwriters Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith to write ExpendaBelles, an Expendables spinoff focusing “on the feminine side of the mercenary business.” But why would anyone want to hire a team of female mercenaries to accomplish any job requiring brute aggression?

As a kicker Mike Fleming named several female action stars, but there’s only one…okay, two I’d be reluctant to face in a fight. I’m speaking of Haywire‘s Gina Carano and maybe Kill Bill‘s Uma Thurman, largely because she’s tall and can probably kick like a mule. I am otherwise unimpressed.
