Sylvester Stallone wants Sigourney Weaver to play wife in 'Expendables' spin-off

By Mila Whiteley,

Although still promoting the third film in The Expendables franchise, Sylvester Stallone has already mentioned plans for a female Expendables spin-off. Known as Expendabelles, this spin-off might just feature Sigourney Weaver.

In a recent press conference for The Expendables 3, Stallone jokingly mentioned how Weaver could be in the franchise

“Are the Expendabelles really part of a divorce? Say Sigourney Weaver was my wife and she inherited half the Expendables? I lost the house and my mercenaries!” Stallone said, NME reports.

Despite the joking tone, Weaver has proved her action movie chops numerous times as the star of the Alien franchise, showing that she has the physical skills for this sort of film.

Indeed, one large concern for Stallone and producer Avi Lerner is finding the balance between skilled actresses and skilled fighters, and knowing when it is necessary to sacrifice either for the good of the film.

“Do we put all women actresses together, would that really work? Or do we have some women who are actually really known to be tough fighters?" Stallone said about those concerns, reports the New York Daily News.

Previous casting rumors for Expendabelles have brought up the possible casting of Resident Evil star Milla Jovovich in the film.
