First Look: Schwarzenegger, Willis & Stallone on 'Expendables 2' Set
Well I'll be damned, I didn't even know they were shooting yet! Returning actor Arnold Schwarzenegger recently tweeted one of the first ever photos from the set of The Expendables 2, Lionsgate's sequel to Sly's action hit, this time being directed by Simon West. Schwarzenegger's photo includes a shot of him standing with none other than Bruce Willis and Sylvester Stallone, both of whom have roles in this, along side all the regulars like Jason Statham, Jet Li, Terry Crews, Mickey Rourke, Dolph Lundgren, even Jean-Claude Van Damme. I'm sure we'll be seeing photos of all of them eventually, too. But for now, check out this photo!
"Back in action for The Expendables 2! I'm having a fantastic time on set with Bruce and Sly in Bulgaria," Arnold tweeted. Here's a good look at the photo of John Kimble, Rocky and John McClane, via Twitpic:
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, along with rumors of John Travolta and Nicolas Cage. Shooting is already underway, as this photo confirms, especially because the Lionsgate has already set an official August 17th, 2012 release date next summer. I'm sure this is only the first of many photos to come, considering the hype they're going to build around this crazy cast of action superstars, which may indeed top the original. We'll keep you updated as they continue shooting! And thanks to ComingSoon for the tip. Looking good so far?
