“The Expendables 3” could add a woman to the franchise’s all-male roster. “Resident Evil” star Milla Jovovich is currently being courted to join the Lionsgate series.
Deadline reports that Jovovich, Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes and Nicolas Cage are all in “advanced negotiations” to join the project. While Sylvester Stallone has stated his interest in Chan, Snipes and Cage for a while, Jovovich is new to the lineup.
Meanwhile, a female version of “The Expendables” is currently in the works as well. Back in October, Variety reported that “Battlestar Galactica” alum Katee Sackoff and “Fast & Furious Six’s” Gina Carano had joined the cast of the untitled film.
“The Expendables 3” is slated to begin filming in August. No release date has been announced.
