There’s no denying that cast of original The Expendables was comprised of one of the most impressive gatherings of leading action-men the genre has ever seen, and appears as though the forthcoming sequel is going to continue this tradition, all the while adding a few more enticing additions to up the ante even further.
David Varod, CEO of NU Boyana, a studio in Bulgaria where the film will be shot, spilt the beans on the casting details to Novinite, effectively announcing who else we can expect to be joining the original cast members.
The Expenadables 2 cast is now set to feature: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, John Travolta, Chuck Norris, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Mickey Rourke, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, and Bruce Willis.
Most of these names don’t come as a huge surprises since we obviously expected the bulk of the team to reprise their roles once again, but Travolta, Norris and Van Damme? That’s just flat out awesome! Plus it’ll be intresting to see whether Schwarzenegger will feature more heavily this time around.
Either way, with a cast like that, The Expendables 2 seems to be shaping up very nicely. Consider me officially excited. I only hope that this sequel can address some of the notable flaws that were present the first time around, namely the lack of any form of coherent plot….
Directed by Simon West (Con Air, The Mechanic), The Expendables 2 is due to explode into theaters on August 17, 2012.
The Expendables are back and this time it’s personal! After Tool, the heart and soul of the Expendables, is brutally murdered on a mission, his comrades swear to avenge him. They’re not the only ones who want blood. Tool’s beautiful young and wild daughter Fiona embarks on her own revenge mission, complicating matters when she is captured and ransomed by a ruthless dictator plotting to destroy a resistance movement. Now Barney and the Expendables must risk everything to save her and humanity.
