Okay Stallone, now let's not try too hard like the last movie, shall we? Just because you got 80s action stars doing manly things without some good camaraderie and half the cast not showing up until the last half, a throwback to the old-school action films does not make.

Also, let's keep this hard R this time? Not a badly done CGI blood mess like the first one.

That couldn't be helped. The movie was originally going to be PG-13, so they had to unfortunately go back and make everything look more bloody with CGI. This time, they won't have that problem.

Yeah, hopefully JCVD gets the role of a top villain or such, i've always found him to be an underrated bad guy. He did a movie called Replicant in which he plays two characters, one is a serial killer and he really impressed with me doing the villainous stuff.

As long as they stay away from Hulk Hogan (which was a rumor at one point). If anything, get Piper.

I liked the first one. It wasn't the be all end all of action films it was hyped as, but it was pretty fun.

I'll definitely be checking the sequel out just for the cast.

Bring it on.

Just hope for a stable camera this time around.

It would have been cool if they got Christopher Lambert (Highlander, Hunted) for this.

A nice ol' bumping of the thread wouldn't have been the end of the world.

Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme Confirmed for "The Expendables 2"

It was recently confirmed that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis will be returning for "The Expendables" sequel with bigger roles than in the original film.

And now, Sylvester Stallone has revealed that both Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme are already on board as well. "We'll have a big showdown between me and Van Damme, which has been anticipated for a long time," said Stallone. "We've got Chuck Norris and I think Nic Cage."

He added that the goal is to reunite Cage with John Travolta, but Stallone is also hoping to help out actors who were once well known, but have since faded away. "I like using people that had a moment and then maybe have fallen on some hard times and give them another shot," he explained. "So we're always looking for actors like Michael Biehn and Michael Pare."
