Arnie's Expendable!

02.17.2009

Arnold Schwarzenegger Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Mickey Rourke, Dolph Lundgren and now…Arnold goddamn Schwarzenegger? Is Sly kidding with this overload of awesomeness? (apparently not, Danny Trejo was just added according to Latino Review) According to "AICN", that's a big fat NO. What the hell is all this babbling, you say? Well. Harry & co. are reporting that ole Arnie will be putting in a cameo in Stallone's upcoming mercenary actioner THE EXPENDABLES as…himself. That's right, Stallone's character and the Governor of California have some kinda connection, apparently, so we may not get to see Arnie kill the shit out of South American bad guys but let's just keep our fingers crossed. They also report that Ben Kingsley has been replaced in the film by Eric Roberts and that Mickey Rourke has officially signed on. This movie may just be a little too much awesome for people to handle.

Extra Tidbit: According to his IMDB page, Schwarzenegger's also acting in a movie titled KAMBAKKHT ISHQ.

Excellent news.

You've gotta love people like Skellington who bash Stallone while not having seen the vast majority of his films.

testoserone overload!!!!

Lets see, group of tough guys; check, South America; check, lots of shit blowing up; check. Duh, its Sly coz I seriouly doubt if this will be oscar material (apart maybe from sound editing).

Now that arnie is mentioned, I can't help but feel those Predator undertones because this is like, take the dudes out of the jungle and into the city (urban warfare, baby) minus the predator.

haha JCVD saw this one coming and possibly thought "I aint gonna be no predator" as soon as mercenaries & S.

haha JCVD saw this one coming and possibly thought "I aint gonna be no predator" as soon as mercenaries & S. America were in the same sentence thinking it was a predator remake. But seriouly, he did declined a role in this movie.

Anyway hope it will be good and now we just need a pair of boobies to create a 'gender-balance'

van damme already rejected a role in this movie. he said he wanted to focus on more serious stuff rather than straight up action after his movie JCVD. such a huge mistake, this movie is gonna kick ass. arnold being in it is just too perfect. if only he was in the movie longer and was playing a badass mercenary rather than himself

???

Why is no one talking about Jean Claude Van Damme!!!! To get all these guys in another movie together may never happen. The only one missing is Van Damme. It would be a shame to leave him out! The cast is outstanding as is, But adding JCVD would make this a 100% WoW to my nards! no joke! Please if anyone that can make this happen sees this.... Consider it!!!

Awesome, badass, etc...

Granted, these words are way overused; especially into internet message boards.

True, Stallone seems - on a superficial level at least - to aim for the lowest geek common denominator, just like some directors I wouldn't name (*cough* Jon Favreau *cough*) spend way too much time casting fan favorites' names and browsing (or pretending to do so) the web in order to rub the fans the right way. That's an annoying habit of building a bullshit connivance with the audience in order to sell arguably

HOWEVER, Stallone proved with Rocky Balboa and Rambo that he really grew up both as a screenwriter and a filmmaker. And his skills weren't exactly low to begin with. These two flicks were very well-crafted and - as far as I'm concerned - borderline great. I have faith this movie will be a hell of a ride, and given the controversial subject it might even be a little more than just basic action. Wait and see as they say, but I for one am very optimistic. So long, Inglorious Basterds!!

Hey Skellington...

Uhhhhh yeah..."awesome" describes this movie in every way possible. You know you'll love it, just like everyone else will. This movie actually screams awesome in about 80 different languages! Arnie being on makes it scream an additional 80!

It is now official. This is the greatest action flick ever and I don't care if it's not even filming yet (is it?). It's just not possible for it to suck with the caliber of people involved in it.

Inglorious who?

a few observations...

ah-nold was never a thespian, or oscar contender. he did what he did well, blow shit up. at one point, he was the biggest star on planet earth !!

sly has had some stinkers in his time (stop or mummy will shoot, anyone?)but lets not forget the writing and directing of films like rocky, and the last rambo was a blast. seriously.

mickey "the comeback kid" rourke gave us pope of greenwich village,diner, year of the dragon,sin city...

statham is the new arnie (action star of the highest

statham is the new arnie (action star of the highest order)

i think, personally, even though theres been more than a few "bombs" amongst this stellar cast, the pros far outweigh the cons. i dont think it takes a rocket scientist to figure out that, while name talent alone doesnt guarantee a great film, this HAS to be the exception to the rule...the cast is too familiar with the territory,the director has proven his talent, the name power alone is staggering, its just far too much positives to be a failure.

sorry skellington, i think youre way off on this one. your opinion counts, but i feel the box office results will eventually prove you wrong, as well as the film.

Am I the only one to think the word 'awesome' shouldnt even be associated to this film. What in the world makes you believe it can be any good ??? Is Stallon supposed to be a great director ? Not as far as Im concerned. And what about that cast ??? None of them can act most of the time.

This just sounds like the coolest movie in years

I haven't been this excited for a long long time about movie news. I just wish Arnold was actually part of the team but it's so great he's even in the film. The only thing that could have me more excited is if they cast Eric Dane as Captain America.
