Millennium Entertainment has hired Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith (Legally Blonde) to write another female version of The Expendables, entitled ExpendaBelles.

We have been reporting lately on Adi Shankar's all-female action project known as the Untitled Adi Shankar Project, which has Gina Carano and Katee Sackhoff attached to star. This Millennium Entertainment project is seeking female action legends to make up their cast, instead of younger stars. The studio is said to be compiling their list of action stars, but don't plan on making any formal offers until the script is completed.

Avi Lerner and Mark Gill will produce for Millennium, along with Eclectic Pictures' Heidi Jo Markel, Summertime Entertainment's Julie Kroll, and Boaz Davidson. Trevor Short will serve as executive producer.

It isn't known when production will begin, although look for the Untitled Adi Shankar Project to start shooting first, since that project seems much further along in the development process.
