Sly Stallone is Already Thinking About An 'Expendables' Sequel?

The Expendables

Though the testosterone fueled action romp The Expendables isn't hitting theaters for a few more days, 24 Frames says the film's writer/director/star Sylvester Stallone has already been contemplating an idea for a sequel (but that's it). However, the legendary action star is not arrogantly assuming his movie will perform well enough at the box office to warrant a sequel, but he's just thinking ahead. Stallone said, "If this does perform, I think it will open a little more liquidity in funding the sequel." Maybe if it does well enough, Stallone could bring Danny Trejo into the mix after pulling the rug from under his feet the first time around.

As far as the story goes, it sounds like Stallone has something wild in mind, but he wasn't forthcoming with any details. 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." Despite the muscular cast, Stallone had some difficulty getting funding, but like he said, if the sequel does well this weekend, then he shouldn't have too much trouble getting another one off the ground. The real question is, what will Sly do to top cameos from the likes of Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger? I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    Don't like the look of this it just giving me a streetfighter film look about it. Hope i'm wrong and it does the business.
  • Darren
    of they dont Die of Old Age after the movie releases then the Sequel might be possible
  • Not a good idea !!!
  • The Boss
    I just want to hear Stallone say the word "liquidity" in that voice of his.
  • Logan
    i would watch the sequel if he gets van damme and kurt russel 😀
    "if the sequel does well this weekend," proofreading...
  • lego
    ya, this is just gonna be one big retirement plan for all the old guys. making movies like this till they all die of old age.
  • Cmurder
    He could actually have Willis and Schwarzenegger star in it, and replace Couture with Chuck Norris and add JCVD, Trejo, and the Rock...maybe even Vin Diesel...
  • Darren
    Kiefer Sutherland....Sequel...!!!
  • It would be funny if there is a sequel...and then Danny Trejo is cast again....and then once filming begins he's dropped. HA!
  • Al
    Number 8, those are all the people I had in mind. Plus Kurt Russel, and I would keep Couture.
  • dove89
    the movie needs chuck norris in it
  • Carl
    Already thinking of a sequel eh??? Well here's a little idea for you Sly... INCLUDE JACKIE CHAN AND JCVD.
  • shadow
    Jackie Chan and JVCD as the bad guys.
  • Fearl3ss
    Al Pacino & Robert De Niro as mafia leaders, Steven Seagal & Trejo as right hand men.
  • O6
    if you guys didnt know jcvd was invited to join the cast and refused stating he was looking for better projects, lmao what a goof.
  • Fearl3ss
    @16 Also apparently JCVD denied the role because his role was not defined by Sly and sly said they would make gud bucks out of it. Not knowing what role he would play he jumped out. Perhaps he would have played Couture's role!!
  • Astroboy3000
    Kurt Russell is a God !!! finally, people start to realize
  • Cracky
    14 and 15. Blend these two together for the greatest action film ever made.
  • Spider
    I'm so looking forward to this flick! Contrary to what the critics say, I'm betting this flick WILL ROCK!! Having said that, IF there is a sequel, I sure hope Sly is able to rustle up Steven Seagal and Van Damme this time around! Other potential cast members well worth including are: Michael Dudikoff (American Ninja), Ken Wahl (from 80s TV show "Wiseguy"), Jack Scalia ( 80s TV show "Wolf", the senator from 2005's "Wes Craven's: Red Eye", and many B-flicks), Miles O' Keeffe (1981's "Tarzan the Ape Man" and many B-flicks, Thomas Ian Griffith from 1989's "Karate Kid Pt. 3" and many B-flicks, and Nick Mancuso (80s TV show "Stingray", 1992s "Rapid Fire" --opposite the late Brandon Lee).......So, let's hope this flick delivers the slam, bang, hardcore action that has been missing all summer long and blows up into a HUGE HIT! :)
  • beavis
    maybe the next one would be about sly breaking out of a nursing home.
  • ces
    get dwanye johnson, jean claude and kurt russell and then im sold.... no seagal cuz jcvd would fight him
  • DoomCanoe
    yeah JCVD, Kurt Russell, Jackie Chan and tony ja!
  • Blue Silver
    For the record, Sly is a tough senior citizen(if he can be referred to as one) and he still can kick some serious ass. We should be so lucky if any of us look like that, let alone make it to that age, in the future!
  • the critic
    arnie will be out of office by then and willis will hope on a sure thing. they will both end up being major players in a furtuer film! id love to see van damn in there. and itd be cool to see steven segul getting the ass kicking of a life time handed to him.
  • the critic
    This is my action hero movie list that i recon should have these ppl playing it the follow up movie. This is one bad ass list and its a proven list too! Sly arnie Willis Chuck norris JCVD Trejo the rock stone cold stratham jackie chan jet - li crews segul tom cruise hugh jackman samuell l jackson this cast would make a billion easy at the box office!
  • maxwell
    you forgetting the highlander himself Christopher lambert and you need timothy dalton(James bond, and hot Fuzz) and thomas Jane(the PUnisher)
  • Ben
    I'll be happy if Rick Moranis is in the sequel.
  • David Banner
    You guys have no sense of humor-STEVEN SEAGAL ofc!!! :)
  • Cineprog
    That's the problem with all films it is getting the funding for them, but before making my mind up weather The Expendables should get a Sequel or not I would like to The Expendables.
  • o Toxin o
    They could bring in Steven Seagal , Wesley snipes . Jean Claude Van Dam etc.. just continue with a total badass casting eben though these guys are older an some washed up its still like watching an all star game to me
  • harm
    Chuck Norris and Steven Segal should never be in movies again. Or if they are, make them a competing group of mercs that gets killed right out the gate! You all also forgot Jean Reno!
  • WTF
    JCVD Chuck Norris Jackie Chan Michael Jai white(I would have said Wesley Snipes but he's in jail now) Scott Adkins(villian) Samuel L Jackson The Rock Marrese Crump(villian) Liam Neeson(villian) I don't know why but I really want to see a JCVD vs Statham fight.
  • They should get Jesus, if they could get him in that would be the best. Then even closeted gay christians could masturbate to the overblown pumped up macho love fest that is the Expendables. Plus Jesus can pull down buildings with his mad lazers coming out his fingers and he doesn't even need a gun.
  • @Crapola
    ur an idiot retarded fuck. what the heck has to do your hate of God and Jesus with a movie ?! moron.
