Dolph Lundgren Might Join Sly Stallone's Expendables
The day we announced that Sylvester Stallone was making The Expendables, a veritable "homecoming of tough guys" as Stallone himself now calls it, we thought it couldn't get any better than that - Jason Statham, Jet Li, and Stallone all starring together in an action extravaganza. Besides mentioning at one point that Forest Whitaker might also join the cast, Stallone also just told Review Nation that they're getting close to securing Dolph Lundgren for the film as well. You've got to be kidding me?! If only Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jean Claude Van Damme were to join, we'd have the greatest action movie cast assembled in cinematic history! Now we've just got to figure out what The Expendables is about…
Unlike Van Damme, though, Lundgren still is starring in crappy action movies like Universal Soldier III. He also starred alongside of Stallone in Rocky IV previously. I don't really know if he's still a good actor, but that doesn't matter, because really, The Expendables isn't going to be about how well any of these guys can act. We just want to see them blow shit up and kill guys for 90+ minutes, right? Like it or not, that's going to be the case. And having Lundgren on board isn't going to hurt it anyway, I mean, he's one of the iconic tough guys alongside of Stallone, Statham, Schwarzenegger, and Van Damme! So far all we know is that The Expendables is about a team of mercenaries sent on a mission to overthrow a South American dictator.
