Of course Stallone wants an Expendables sequel

08.11.2010

No one on planet earth loves sequels as much as Sylvester Stallone, and the man has turned two films into ten with his ROCKY and RAMBO series.

So naturally, the man is already thinking about a sequel to his next action endeavor, THE EXPENDABLES, provided it does well at the box office.

"If this does perform, I think it will open a little more liquidity in funding the sequel," he said. "I have an idea ready to go. People think doing a sequel is easy, but it's not because you need the element of surprise. I'm going to try to do something that's quite radical."

What, only one sequel? I’m surprise he doesn’t have the mapped out into a 5-part saga already. Despite all Stallone’s star power, he did have trouble finding the funds for THE EXPENDABLES initially, but if the film does well, he believes he’ll have a lot more free cash to play with in future projects.

Speaking to the LA Times, Stallone admits he’s nervous about the opening, but he sees the fact that he broke his neck while filming the movie as a good sign.

"It's a good omen," he explained. "I didn't get a hangnail on the set of 'Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot.' "

Hah, good one Sly. You're alright.

The sequel should have Arnold and his group of mercenaries (all classic and new action stars) facing off against Stallone and his group of guys for the same job. After all Sly and Arnold have been rivals their whole life often going for similar action roles and whatnot. It would be fitting for a sequel (twice as many action stars!)

Do you like anything? or do you just hate everything?

THE EXPENDABLES will do good in the box office and the sequel I cannot wait for?

Feh

I was never interested in Rambo or Rocky or Cobra (remember that?) but I'd like to wait and see the Expendables on video. If I have time I'll go see it in a theatre so Stallone has the money he needs for a sequel. I'd be surprised if it didn't make boatloads of cash overseas though.

Wait to see how it performs and then work on a sequel, gramps. Plus, how about a better plot this time around? Just a suggestion.

Your incessant pessimism is getting ridiculously annoying. Why don't you go back to wanking over Katy Perry pics like you always do?

Even the most ardent hater of Stallone would admit that he's a great writer: he writes fantastic scripts. Rocky was nominated for ten Academy Awards including Best Actor in a Leading Role and Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen and actually won for Best Picture.

And this is why it's important The Expendables opens #1 this week-end and makes plenty of bucks. This is our chance to get more old-school action movies coming our way in the near future. If you're a child of the eighties and early nineties, it is your DUTY to go see this this week-end. SCOTT PILGRIM MUST DIE (note: this is SECOND DEGREE for the retards who wouldn't get it).

It's not surprising that Stallone wants to do a sequel and based off what I have been seeing in the trailers and have been hearing, it'll look like Stallone will have that chance. I really hope the movie does well for Stallone and the guys. If a sequel does get greenlit, then I would love to see Kurt Russell, Van Damn, and The Rock join the cast. If Stallone makes a third then he can have about every big action star in this Expendables franchise.

Obviously, I haven't seen The Expendables yet, but this sounds like a much better idea than making a 5th Rambo.

Jaa would be an incredible addition to Expendables! And maybe Van Damme will be a bit smarter and join up next time.

Personally, I'm not excited in the slightest to see The Expendables. I guess if you didn't grow up in the 80s you don't really understand the underground hype behind this thing. I've got Scott Pilgrim and Eat, Pray, Love making more money than Expendables. Plus I just wanna see Riverdog being wrong.

I will be judging this movie by it's quotables.

hoping for something par with "let off some steam, Bennet" or "you're the disease and I'm the cure". I'll even settle for an "I must break you"

Please make money!

I'd give anything for SCOTT PILGRIM to be released next week so EXPENDABLES can make all the money it can. A sequel is needed for sure with a new group of EXPENDABLES!
