Gina Carano is in talks to join a female version of The Expendables.

The Haywire star is the first actress to join the cast in Adi Shankar's upcoming film, reported Variety.

The director revealed he is thrilled about the former mixed martial arts champion's involvement, saying: "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," he added.

It has not been revealed what other names are being linked to the film.

Gina - who made her big-screen debut in Haywire - will next be seen in The Fast And The Furious 6 alongside Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Vin Diesel.

She is also attached to star in John Stockwell's action thriller In The Blood.

Fortunately, you have a group of loved ones who know the real you. Arrange to meet with your favourite people for a festive dinner.More
