I have a lot of respect for Gina Carano as an athlete and an actress. I obviously don't know her personally, (there is time for that) but you have to admire her career path. I drooled over her as Crush on American Gladiators then rooted her on as the "Face of Women's MMA"
I thought her film debut in Haywire made for a sold introduction to the general public. Yes, I know I typed debut, I'm discounting everything that came before because I can. I'm not saying Gina is going to be the female version of Dwayne Johnson but there is somewhat of a similar resume. Funny enough Gina is going to star alongside the behemoth in Fast 6 and as one of TMT's favorite writers Jeff Sneider of Variety is reporting, she is the first female Expendable.
"I don't know how I'm supposed to make a movie that is supposed to be the female version of 'The Expendables' without Gina Carano in it. It would be like making Twix without caramel or Jamba Juice without jamba," said Shankar, whose shingle recently co-produced Joe Carnahan's "The Grey," Pete Travis' "Dredd 3D," Andrew Dominik's upcoming Brad Pitt-starrer "Killing Them Softly" and the viral Internet hit "The Punisher: Dirty Laundry," starring Thomas Jane.
I like the thought of a female version of The Expendables, the question is, who else would you cast alongside Gina? I would personally like to see Jessica Biel kicking some ass, Jennifer Garner also would be a nice choice. Ali Larter? Maggie Q?
