Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis will join Sylvester Stallone to complete the holy action trinity for The Expendables 2

09.06.2011

Ask and you shall receive.

It looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis have just signed on to join Sylvester Stallone for THE EXPENDABLES 2.

This ain't no cameo either. According to Deadline, Willis and Arnie have signed on for "substantial" roles in the film. There were rumors running around pointing toward this possibility and now it's real! Don't act like you aren't impressed.

Earlier today, it was confirmed by Moviehole through an official cast list that Chuck Norris, Scott Adkins and Jean-Claude Van Damme would be joining the above said holy action trinity as well as Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, Terry Crews and Randy Couture.

Instead of Sly directing, this time Simon West (CON AIR) will be wrangling the action stars.

Can someone please call Tom Jane and Steven Seagal for this? Pretty please?

Seagal passed up first one due to animosity with one of the producers. I doubt the producer went anywhere with all the money that lined his pockets from the box office. Snipes had to turn down first one because he couldn't legally leave the country. Can he now or is he in jail?
Someone in the posts mentioned Linda Hamilton. If she was in shape that would be bad-ass.
I wouldn't mind seeing Michelle Rodriguez in a sequel. I think they should reunite Mickey Rourke and Don Johnson.

I'd like to see Dwayne Johnson being a hard ass in a flick like this. And throw Danny Trejo in their too.

2 things:

1. How is it that Bruce Willis looks bigger than Arnold?

2. This movie needs Kurt Russell. 80's mullet Kurt Russell.

1. Funny how being the governor of California and about ten years older than Willis can cut into your bodybuilding routine.

2. Stallone tried for Kurt before and he said he had no interest - through his agent. Doesn't seem like he's very much on board.

This is amazing news!! My only suggestion is to get rid of Crews, as he is not even close to an action star and looks very out of place to me. And although Couture isn't a movie hero either, at least he can back it up with real life ass kicking. I still say Michael Biehn should get an offer!

Chuck Norris?

Okay, won't deny it, I'm impressed. On one condition, they cut out the sentimentality and expend a few of these guys. They should've done Couture last time (and maybe Lundgren, since he did get shot), but now it's even doubly important.

Now who's the villain?

I, like a few other people, wasn't a fan of the first flick: too much cutting in fight scenes. But this cast list looks good; would love to see Jet Li face off against Donnie Yen or Chuck Norris.

But who's the villain? I would have said Alan Rickman (Hans Gruber, baby!) but he's too old. Mark Strong?

Please pick Michael Jai White for a role, he would own in this movie!

But great news, I hope substantial means more than 20 minutes on screen and at least one action sequence for all of those guys. I couldn't care less for Norris and Adkins but seeing Van Damme, Arnold, Bruce, Dolph and Sly kicking ass is like a dream come true. Honestly, the only two things better than that are those same guys in their prime and a lesbo scene between Kelly Brook, Stacey Dash, Amber Heard, Rachel McAdams,

Can't help myself, look at that pic above of the three of them if you comb Sly's hair forward and just friz out Arnie's hair, THERE are your three stooges lol how great would that be. I would pay IMAX dollars to see Bruce Willis do the Curly shuffle.

Well, these guys are getting old, so I guess the title "Expendables" really do make sense.

However looking forward to it.

Hopefully this one will be somewhat slower in the fight sequences. Less Micheal Bay.

This is what the GI Joe movie should have been like. Hell, I'd like to see Carl Weathers thrown in there for good measure! All we need is an epic fight scene between Arnie and Sly. Expendables, get to da choppa!!!

I think they should do an expendables game with you teaming with them with voice acting done by the original actors. That would make for an interesting game.

OK I was REALLY disappointed with the original (I know it has its fans obviously).

This sounds awesome though. The cast is even better and the director is improved (for this type of material).

Jane, Russell, and Snipes would REALLY class up the joint...

seriously. I think if there's a 3rd, they could bring a real level of seriousness to it, especially if in the right roles.

I never cared for Steven Segal, not even in his prime. Kurt Russel, Antonio Banderas, and Wesly Snipes are the three I'd like to see most, maybe in a sequel though as this cast already seems over crowded. Mel Gibson would've been cool to see in this series too before he went all batshit crazy, but they could still use Danny Glover as like a C.I.A guy or somethin'.

We have Die Hard, Rambo, and Terminator represented, but not Lethal Weapon or Mad Max... shame.

But more than that, I'd like to see a badass female join the ranks.

Linda Hamilton should be there.

And while we're adding to the asian sensations, why not go a little old school and put in Bolo Yeung or even that one half bald dude who plays miscellaneous henchman in all the 80's action flicks like Lethal Weapon and Die Hard! Yea!

How about some Danny Trejo and Antonio Banderas, with a dash of Lance Henriksen and Rutger Hauer for some gravitas, but definitely some Seagal and Donnie Yen to top it off.
