The Expendables delivered for me exactly what I had expected: over-the-top action with a cast of action heroes. Was the story good? Honestly, I can barely remember: bad guys, expendables blowing bad guys to bits, followed by more bad guys and sprinkle in some betrayal, fights, bombs, guns, the end.
With the sequel its pretty safe to assume it will be more of the same. Weak story and a ton of action. But who will be in it?
With director Simon West preparing to shoot The Expendables 2 soon aiming at an August 17, 2012 release, it’s high-time we heard something about his cast. We expect that surviving members of the original – Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, Terry Crews, Jet Li and possibly Bruce Wills – could all return. But, according to an interview with the CEO of the “biggest film studio” in the country, the film will shoot in Bulgaria, and joining the cast are John Travolta, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme.
JCVD, Chuck Norris, Arnold Schwarzenegger and John Travolta… Personally I’d love for JCVD to show up in The Expendables 2, I really want to see him beat the shit out of Chuck Norris.
Who would you like to see in The Expendables 2?
