Confirmed: Jean-Claude Van Damme will play a villain in The Expendables 2!

May. 6, 2011by: Jake Dee

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!

Doesn't Surprise Me It's Not True

It doesn't surprise me. Sheldon Lettich seems to always just say stuff that goes nowhere. I remember one time he mentioned a new Van Damme film was being made, which was an 'X-Files Meets Seven' horror flick where Van Damme took on a cult (or something to that effect). Yet that, once again, never came to be. So that director seems to have a history of doing that kind of stuff. And my favorite Van Damme is definitely Hard Target.

It'd be great to see him do Expendables 2, but I'm sure his ego

That movie was true, JC booked out of it and it got made without him.

"Weapon" is the title of the movie he was shooting. Hope you dont misunderstand something?! Oh and my favourite is "Double Impact", I know "Bloodsport" and "Kickboxer" are epic but I got a soft spot for this one.

As a HUGE fan of the first film I can honestly say that this news will solidify the overall kick-assedness that Expendables 2 will exude...Bloodsport is still Van Damme's best, but Timecop runs a close second with Cyborg in third...

Favorite of all-time?! IMPOSSIBLE to pick one...

But I'll give ya my favs: Double Impact, Replicant (Rukas, I swear if you liked WoD, YOU WILL LOVE Replicant, I promise), Maximum Risk, Cyborg, Bloodsport, and what I think is where he gives the performance of his career, "J.C.V.D."

Van Damme Rep Says Not True

Just talked with JCVD's talent agent and he says this news isn't true. Unfortunate, it would have been cool. [link]

Reps are often the last to know. JC says yes to Sly, tells Shelton, Shelton yaps it out on a m. board. I still buy it.
