One of the first female action stars attached to the project has been expressing her excitement about how things are shaping up.

Katee Sackhoff, star of Battlestar Galactica, is one of a few actresses who is already attached to Adi Shankar's all female version of The Expendables. Details have been few on the ground of late, but she's now been talking about the film in a recent interview with the fine folks at Collider.

Here's what she had to say:

“Well, I am attached to it, but things always happen. If a script got delivered and was absolutely horrible, then you figure things out. But, I can't imagine, with everyone that Adi Shankar is bringing around the project, that it's going to be bad.”

She continued; “I really put a lot of faith in him for his eye to detail, I'm a big fan of Gina (Carano) and there's a lot of strong women. When I sat down with Adi and he pitched the women that he wanted in the movie these are not your five foot two 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.”

It sounds then like things are shaping up quite nicely. We'll pass on more details on the project when it becomes available.
