Arnold Schwarzenegger & Bruce Willis Confirmed for 'Expendables 2'
The trifecta of badasses is now complete. Following the news going around yesterday that Chuck Norris and JCVD were confirmed for The Expendables 2, the sequel to last year's action extravaganza, Deadline is now confirming that two other action heavy-weights - Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis - will be back for Expendables 2, in bigger roles. Deadline is saying the two have close deals for "substantial" roles in the sequel, which will not be directed by Stallone this time, but he will be returning to star. This is one hell of an incredible action cast they've amassed, with most of the original guys returning as well. Read on!
Millennium Films / Nu Image now has Simon West (Con Air, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, The Mechanic) set to direct The Expendables 2, with Stallone returning along with Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, Terry Crews and Jet Li. The cast now also includes Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis. Damn, I'm excited, even though I didn't like the first one that much. Now we can really ask, is there any action superstar that isn't in this? This time I feel like they really are getting everyone, even beefing up the cameo roles that Schwarzenegger and Willis had. The project is already gearing up, as Lionsgate has set an official August 17th, 2012 release date next summer, which means they better start shooting soon. So who's excited for the big cast they've lined-up for Expendables 2?
