There’s no news here as such, just a really cool picture of the ‘Big Three’ of The Expendables 2, the Planet Hollywood creators. Yes, with filming underway, star Arnold Schwarzenegger posted a picture on his Twitter page of him, Sly Stallone and Bruce Willis taking time out from shooting and looking mighty jolly. With both Willis and Arnie returning, and after their brief but brilliant moment in the first film, all eyes are now on this sequel to see if they actually get something substantial in the film. It has been promised that their characters will be used more in the sequel, and I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see the pair kick some ass. It is not known yet whether they will be good or bad characters, but with such a great cast list we could be heading for any number of showdowns!
Willis Vs Chuck Norris, Arnie VS Van Damme, or how about two man mountains squaring up to each other as Arnie takes on Dolph Lundgren, now that would be cool!
Along with the names already mentioned, it is also rumoured that Nicolas Cage and John Travolta will be joining, and as yet it is still not confirmed if Jet Li and Mickey Rourke will be returning. Jason Statham, Terry Crews and Randy Couture are returning, and new additions to the cast also include Liam Hemsworth and Scott Adkins. This is gonna be one mighty cool film!
Simon West (Con Air) is directing from a script written by David Agosto and Ken Kaufman. The film is expected in UK cinemas 17th August 2012.
