It's our scientifically proven opinion that there's nothing Meryl Streep can't do. The woman is basically a chameleon, whether she's playing a famous chef or the Iron Lady herself. But, her newest role just might be her biggest departure yet. According to a leak reported by Deadline, the Oscar winner is being courted for a female-only version of The Expendables.
The ExpendaBelles, as the flick is currently called, comes from the writers behind 10 Things I Hate About You and Legally Blonde, so it promises plenty of girl-power awesomeness. Producers are reportedly in talks with Milla Jovovich and Cameron Diaz about joining the cast, meaning Streep would be in fine action-star company. We're not sure how she feels about getting into a skintight leather getup and fighting crime, but we know we wouldn't miss watching her do so for anything. Meryl, if you're listening, this is one role you've got to take. (Huffington Post)
