The creation of all-female cast for an "Expendabelles" movie is currently in the works, Sylvester Stallone confirmed, The Telegraph reports.

Stallone, who directed one and appeared both “Expendables” movies with the third to be released Aug. 15, will produce "The Expendabelles," and Robert Luketic, who directed "Legally Blonde," will be the director.

"With Expendabelles you’ve got a situation where we’re in unchartered waters to put all women together and think 'will that really work?' We don’t just want to use the name — it needs to be something that can hold its own," Stallone said during the premiere of the third "Expendables" movie in London, The Telegraph reported.

Even though no female actresses have been confirmed to date, Screen Rant reported in October that Milla Jovovich, Cameron Diaz and Meryl Streep are being heavily considered for roles in the "Expendabelles." Stallone specifically said he'd like to have Sigourney Weaver on the project to play his wife.

Avi Lerner, producer of the “Expendables” franchise movies, told Standart, a Bulgarian news website, that no expense will be spared for the "Expendabelles."

“The action movie will be spectacular — and in nothing inferior to the three male movies of the ‘The Expendables.’ There will be battles, special and visual effects and stunts — the spectacle will be the equivalent to what Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Bruce Willis, and Jean Claude van Damme have done.”

Learner went on to say that “two excellent screenwriters” are working on the movie and the search is on for a female director.

Movie Fanatic reported in February on the likely plot of “Expendabelles,” which involves the women using their femininity to take down a dictator who has captured a nuclear scientist:

“When America’s Navy SEALs are wiped out trying to penetrate the island lair of a deadly despot who has captured one of the world’s top nuclear scientists, it becomes clear that there is no such thing as the right man for the job and that this is a mission so impossible that only women can handle it. The only way in: Some of the world’s deadliest female operatives must pose as high-class call-girls shipped in by private plane to satisfy a dictator — and instead save the scientist and the day.”

As the third installment of the “Expendables” is set to be released in theaters next week, it’s not known when shooting for the “Expendabelles” project will begin.
