JC says no to Sly!

11.28.2008by: The Arrow

When I reported on the DOLPH LUNDGREN joins STALLONE'S THE EXPENDABLES thing HERE, I jolted down "Just get Van Damme in there too and consider me a fulfilled human being!". Well according to Moviehole.net, it seems that JC was in fact  offered a role in Sly's THE EXPENDABLES and he turned it down, so Sly went to Dolph instead who wisely accepted.

And I quote:"They offered the role to a couple of other actors, like JCVD, before they went to Dolph" WTF? It doesn't make any damn sense! This was a shot at getting back in a Studio picture, with Stallone, Jet Li and Jason Statham having your back no less! I don't get it! What a f*cking shame! I won't assume "why" he said no-dice but sure hope it goes beyond ego and not wanting to share top-billing.  THE EXPENDABLES enters production early next year! BRING IT!

UPDATE: Director Sheldon Lettich (who worked with Van Damme) posted this on the Vandammefan.net boards: "Apparently, Sly was pissed too. Sly made the offer personally. They spoke on the phone for a half hour or so. JC apparently gave Sly the explanation about following a new and different career path for himself now." Thanks to DRAGONRAGE for the heads up!

A very BAD MOVE on JC's part IMO.

Ahhh the good old day...

Van Dammage!

Call me crazy, guys! Perhaps like Van Damme...But as I am worried about his decision by turning down the Expendables - the same as most of you - my fantasy really takes me to the idea of having a bigger film plan in the works - and that makes me thinkin' about Robert De Niro! I swear to God that if those two came together in 1 thriller/action movie, with a good story...it will slam-bang the WORLD!
The Good Guy vs. the Bad Guy (but with good acting, good-deep-story and a good director) +

The Good Guy vs. the Bad Guy (but with good acting, good-deep-story and a good director) + 'ACTION' is a MUST for Van Damme!
I believe in Van Damme's ability as a talented actor + most of us (if not all) know who is De Niro = IMAGINE!

Who knows, perhaps that's what he meant when he said "I am following a new and different career path for myself now." A big movie with big stars!

damn

i guess after JCVD, he wants to be looked at as a more serious actor than a mindless action star. still a bad move though, this isn't just another straight to dvd flick, this is a studio flick with stallone and all the others. bad move van damme, this would be like deniro not doing casino just cause he did goodfellas and he wanted to move in a "different career path" with his movies. and i know comparing this movie to casino is doesn't make much sense, but with the talent involved, it could
