Jason Statham is out and about talking about his upcoming film KILLER ELITE. But that isn’t all he’s talking about, and sure enough that isn’t all he’s being asked about. Collider recently got in on the chat, and they naturally asked the man about THE EXPENDABLES 2.
He confirmed to them he will in fact be reprising the role of Lee Christmas: Yeah, yeah Sly and the motley crew are gonna get together and I’ve been invited to the party, and I wanna go there. I had such a great time with Sly, he’s a man I’m very happy to work with again.
When and where they are filming: Yeah they start in two weeks time. Literally, I’m gonna go from one – I’m making a movie with Taylor Hackford in New Orleans called Parker, I’m going straight from there to Bulgaria. That’s where we’re at, Expendables 2 Bulgaria.
Does he even know who will actually be in it? It’s not secret, but the confirmation of who’s in it I can’t give you. But every name in the book has been bandied around, I mean there’s no one out there that hasn’t done great action along the course of their career that hasn’t been at some point mentioned as being in the film, so who the fuck knows?
I’d love for them to get a 100% official cast list ready, perhaps we’ll know for certain in two weeks when they start filming.
THE EXPENDABLES 2 is set for an August 17th release date next year. Our potential cast includes Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Jet Li, Chuck Norris, Jean Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture and Scott Adkins.
