Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sly Stallone, Bruce Willis

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:

Back in action for The Expendables 2!

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?

    "here's a good look at the full photo of Rambo, John McClane and Rocky" What? Do you mean Command, John McClane and Rocky?

      "Here's a good look at the photo of John Kimble, Rocky and John McClane." He didn't mention 2 Stallone characters. That's Arnold in Kindergarten Cop. Command? Do you mean Commando? That would be Mr. Badass, John Matrix.

    I hope in the sequel, there will be more amazing fight scenes.It would be good if they include Jackie Chan, Steven Seagal, Michael Jai White, Kurt Angle and Bill Goldberg.

      Kurt Angle and Bill Goldberg??? Sure Kurt's done some $2 (budget) movies for TNA, but Bill was only in Universal Soldier: The Return and uhh... The Love Boat: The Next Wave. They are not action stars.

      i think the real bread winner you're forgetting who should be in this movie is Mel Gibson (the patriot, braveheart, we were soldiers, etc.). Don't even give him a gun...give him something with a blade and let him hack his way through the film!

    I wish they get rid of Statham and use the older action stars
  • SandraB
    Michael Jai White is in this one.
  • Spider
    Awesome, considering that this flick has been shooting for almost a month, now! I sure hope these guys, Van Damme, and Lundgren get EPIC fight scenes that showcase just what bad-asses they really are!!!!!

    Am I the only one that noticed that Arnold's outfit is almost exactly (I'm working from memory here) the same as his "undercover" getup in the beginning of Kindergarten Cop?
  • When those lost old actors go to Bulgaria and take a picture on the set of the movie you make a big deal of it  !! but when a stuntman dies on the set of the same movie and another one is in critical situation you are silent !! why is that ? does NU IMAGES and Millennium Films pay you to just publish good news about their movies and pass the bad news !?  I really hope you can explain this !? everywhere they wrote about the death of the stuntman .. just you are silent ! This is shame
