Sly gets release date

THE EXPENDABLES sounds like it's gonna be about as much fun as a movie could possibly get. And I have no real knowledge of the film's plot (something about being sent to go kick some ass), simply that a film stars Stallone, Statham, Lundgren, Li and Rourke (with a little Schwarzenegger sprinkled in for good luck). And to me that's good enough to at least get my ass in a theater seat. But when will that be exactly? We've got word today that Lionsgate has set an April 23, 2010 release for the film. That's a little over a year away (an agonizing year away) and right now it's only competition is the Chris Rock/Tracy Morgan comedy DEATH AT A FUNERAL. And while I adore Chris Rock and Tracy Morgan, that's not really a competition. And while I'm thinking about it, you know what would be awesome? THE EXPENDABLES at Comic-Con. That crowd would go nuts if Lionsgate rolled out all those names above.

Extra Tidbit: Van Damme, Snipes and Sandra Bullock were all offered roles in the film.

Did Snipes have to turn it down due to his legal problems? And why hasn't the Rock been offered a part in this? Is he insisting on only kid movies now?

surprised

Surprised van damme would turn this down... whereas Snipes obviously still takes himself too seriously, I thought JCVD seemed to indicate van damme was much more humble these days, and if anything, embraced his cultish, niched celebrity... And Expendables is clearly making its name off of stars and notions from that era.... So Id love to know why he passed.

Van Damme and Snipes were offered foles and didn't sign on?!?! I don't understand this!! Even if this movie is a visual bloodbath, with a wish-washy story like the new Rambo, it still would have the kick-back, kick-ass effect to it guys want to see, so why not sign up and make it fun watching??? Can't wait for this movie!!!

I hope that mention of adoring Chris Rock and Tracy Morgan was sarcasm. I don't like Tracy Morgan at all; Chris Rock I can tolerate occasionally, but the fact that they're both starring in a re-make of a film that, for one is perfectly fine it's own right (seriously Hollywood, give it up. Just admit that sometimes the Brits are a lot better at doing it than you are), and for another is not even five years old so why the fuck are they re-making it????

If there weren't people like Stallone

If there weren't people like Stallone intent on delivering awesomeness I would lose all my faith in Hollywood.

Good and Bad...

Costigan, the Chris Rock version is unfortunately a remake of that very Frank Oz film from 2007. I know, it shows how low Hollywood has gone and is willing to go.

But fuck yeah, bring on The Expendables!

Very stoked for The Expendables.

And Death at a Funeral??? Kinda weird how it shares the title with that Frank Oz dark comedy from 2007.
