Expendables 2 with new director?

The L.A. times is reporting that Sylvester Stallone may be considering skipping the directors seat with regard to a follow-up to last summers action fest film The Expendables and instead letting someone new have a hand in the film’s direction.

The follow-up movie is a priority at producer Millennium Films, where it’s being developed by Stallone, the creative force behind the original. But Stallone, who both starred in and directed the 2010 summer hit, isn’t, at the moment, planning on helming the new movie. Instead, he’s been meeting with directors to tackle the sequel, said a person who was briefed on the project but was not authorized to speak about it publicly.

The last film was a hit and now with the franchise growing I can see Sly wanting to focus on his “performance” and allow someone else to give their spin as far as direction. I don’t mind this idea as there are plenty of talented directors out there that could develop another fun film with their own twists.

I just like the idea of all these mega stars teaming up and hopefully expanding the cast. I personally have a tough time imagining who they could add as they pretty much covered the bases with the first film. Any Ideas?
