First Photos of Sly Stallone in Action on The Expendables
Those first photos from Iron Man 2 weren't the only new set photos floating around today! The guys at SpoilerTV also got the first few photos of Sylvester Stallone in action on the set of The Expendables in Rio de Janeiro. We've been talking about casting on this for a while, and its finally started shooting, so expect more photos to start to showing up soon. Stallone was the only one shooting in this scene and you can see a couple photos of him, with a hand gun, jumping and diving around a pier. There's also a giant sea plane with "Global Wildlife Conservatory" written on the side, which I imagine is their cover name in the movie.
Click either of the photos above to see more. Sly explains via Twitter: "I had to chase a seaplane along a pier and jump inside which was like running headlong into hurricane Katrina." As a recap, The Expendables is about a team of mercenaries who head to South America on a mission to overthrow a dictator. In addition to Stallone, it also stars Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Steve Austin, Terry Crews, and Charisma Carpenter. Sly also explained in an interview in Brazil that The Expendables is "a 1980's movie with today's technology." Does that mean we'll see some crazy Rambo-like action? I hope so!
