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, Ive met with them, but its not anything further than that. I made it happen. I wanted to meet with these guys. Im just happy if this movie gets made, but Id 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 shes awesome. I think she embodies badass without putting it on. You know what I mean? I mean, Ive met her, and we both drank a lot of and talked bad-assery and its pretty true. Shes just sort of a bad-ass so shed 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!

I would put down money for that movie now. I mean, everybody else is doing Kickstarter, Zoe. You should go with this. It should be a thing. Im completely on board with this.

(Twiddling her fingers) Pondering, pondering(laughs)"

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.
