Meryl Streep, Cameron Diaz and Milla Jovovich in Talks for 'The ExpendaBelles'


Millennium Films' head Avi Lerner also spills that he is looking for a female director to helm the all-female version of Sylvester Stallone's 'The Expendables'.

"The ExpendaBelles" is aiming high. Millennium Films' chief Avi Lerner tells Bulgarian's press Standart (via Deadline) that he is courting "Into the Woods" witch Meryl Streep, "Charlie's Angels" actress Cameron Diaz and "Resident Evil" star Milla Jovovich for the project.

Planning to shoot the action film in Bulgaria, Lerner also spills that he is in search of female director to helm the all-female version of Sylvester Stallone's "The Expendables". The script is written by "Legally Blonde" scribes Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith.

When the film was first announced last year, "The Expendables 2" director Simon West offered his thoughts on his favorite actresses to join cast, "It would be Angelina Jolie, Cameron Diaz, Milla Jovovich, the list goes on. Helen Mirren, Jamie Lee Curtis would be great."

Visioning the female gang as "seven or eight women mercenaries," he said they would not be a direct replacement of Sly and co. in the franchise. "No, it would be running parallel," he said. "They would meet up and then they would fight and they would join up and save each other."
