    The Expendables 2 (film) - Even more expendable!

    http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Stone...s-2-20966.html

    The Expendables was such a smash hit that Sylvester Stallone is already planning Expendables 2. This time around we’re certain to get a lot more of Bruce Willis than just a cameo, and he seems excited to become a full time member of the group. So excited that Bruce spent the weekend talking up the possible sequel while out promoting his new movie Red.

    Interesting to say the least, but I hope they rope in a few more old time action vets. Who did they miss? Segal? Van Damage?

    Someone come up with some better 80s/early 90s action vets. Kurt Russel, maybe? That China O'Brien chick?

    Someone else was already thinking this one up it seems.

    Michael Dudikoff, Christopher Lambert and Bosworth...hmmm...

    Would Segal and Damme work togethor? I thought they had an argument at Stallone's house many years ago and Damme asked Segal to step outside, and Segal refused to...

    Just as well, as I think Damme would have whooped his rear!

    That's one of the stories I've heard.

    I don't like either of the blowhards, to be honest. Two guys with over-inflated egos who are both accused of doing some pretty nasty shit in their day. Sounds like most over-indulged actors from the 80s, right? I don't know, just something about their pretentiousness hits a sour note with me, always has.

    Turns out Stallone won't be returning to the director's chair for Expendables 2. He will star in the film, but he's turning over his writing and directing duties to someone else.

    I can't imagine why Stallone would turn down the chance to direct the sequel. He's been desperately stretching for films to direct, resulting in resurrecting his dead franchises, and now he's going to turn down the one original thing he has going? hrm...

    Michael Ironside should be in this as the villain.

    I say bring in Chuck Norris too. It's a damn shame Charles Bronson is dead.

    Cüneyt Arkın has to appear!

    I wonder if Van Damme will appear in this sequel after turning down the first movie.

    Van Damme, Segal, & Norris are the 3 names I keep hearing thrown around. The other speculation if we'll see expanded roles for Schwarzenegger &/or Willis.

    Heck, throw in Sho Kosugi as Jet Li's dad or something while we're at it.

    Arnold's got to be in it a bit more now that he's acting again. And Willis just NEEDS to be in it. His career ahs been in a bit of a slump lately. I recently saw a trailer for some movie starring Willis and 50 Cent.

    I heard "Red" was pretty good. But then again, he made that horrible looking buddy cop movie with Tracy Morgan (ugh).

    Red was good fun. It wasn't great by any means, but it was solid fun.

    The buddy cop flick you're on about is "Cop Out" ... which was disappointing. Although it still has some good qualities to it - and if you're a Kevin Smith fan, the Blu-Ray's "maximum comedy mode" is essential viewing.

    Maybe it's just me, but the trailer for that looked about as funny as ass cancer. The way Tracy Morgan was carrying on was like somebody who just fell off the short bus. Seriously, I was 1/2 convinced the "buddy premise" of this one was: grizzled cop + special ed or head trauma cop = "wacky hijinks"
