Even if she did lose Fast & Furious 7 to Rousey, Bell's not sore about it. She seems to regard more women kicking ass on camera as a good thing, which likely feeds into her enthusiasm for the female-fronted Expendables spin-off tentatively known as ExpendaBelles. Confirming fan speculation that Bell is being considered for the project, she previously revealed she'd had a meeting with its makers. When I asked her about it, she wanted to clarify how this meeting came about, saying:
"Basically, I’ve met with them, but it’s not anything further than that. I made it happen. I wanted to meet with these guys. I’m just happy if this movie gets made, but I’d be really happy if I get to participate in any way, shape, or form."
As Bell is no longer just a stunt woman or actress, but also a producer, I asked who'd be in her dream cast of such a movie. And her answer was pretty awesome:
"I just love Michelle Rodriguez. I think she’s awesome. I think she embodies badass without putting it on. You know what I mean? I mean, I’ve met her, and we both drank a lot of and talked bad-assery and it’s pretty true. She’s just sort of a bad-ass so she’d definitely be in there. Gina Carano, of course, because that would just be silly not to. Ronda Rousey would be fun. I would love to bring back Linda Hamilton and Sigourney Weaver. And me, of course!
ExpendaBelles makers should not only cast Bell, but also should bring her on board as a producer to help wrangle her wish list. I stand by what I said above. Her movie would be outstanding.
