A great day for all us hardened action fans...Jean-Claude Van Damme's villainous appearance in THE EXPENDABLES 2 has been confirmed!
Word comes from TheVanDammeFans forum via Sheldon Lettich (director of the JCVD flick Double Impact) who said that Van Damme told him that:"He will be playing a villain in The Expendables 2 and that Weapon (another JCVD flick) looks great." F*ckin-A this sequel is gonna be epic!
As we know now after some confusion, Sly Stallone will NOT direct THE EXPENDABLES 2, nor did he write the script this time around. David Agosto and Ken Kaufman (THE MISSING) jointly inked the screenplay. We're still awaiting the announcement of the new director.
Slated for an August 17th, 2012 release - expect to see some repeat offenders make their return: Sly, Jason Statham, Bruce Willis, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Mickey Rourke, Steve Austin and Jet Li.
Here's hoping Charisma Carpenter shows up in the EXPENDABLES 2 as well!
