THE EXPENDABELLES Gets A New Plot
On Thursday, news broke that Killers and 21 director Robert Luketic boarded Millenium Films’ production of The ExpendaBelles for Millenium Films. The news led to a synopsis announcement detailing a covert rescue mission to infiltrate the enemy lair as high-end call girls to rescue a nuclear scientist and stop a mad dictator.
The Expendables universe has a new team. An elite group of highly trained female mercenaries are brought together for a covert hostage rescue mission. Once they are behind enemy lines, the women discover that they will also need to topple an evil dictator bent on world domination. It becomes clear there there is no such thing as the right man for the job. The Expendabelles is the ultimate story of female empowerment and kick-ass teamwork.

A bit high concept, albeit more comedic ala Austin Powers perhaps. I would have gone straight action drama with it.
