JCVD and Chuck Norris Officially Confirmed to Join 'Expendables 2'?
Not too long ago, some interesting names were rumored to join the beefy, action-star cast of The Expendables 2, the sequel to last year's throwback to action films from decades past with familiar faces from those films taking part. While it's been expected that original cast members like Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, Terry Crews and Jet Li would return, rumored names have been circling around online for awhile. Now according to Millennium Films' official website (via IGN) it sounds like Chuck Norris and Jean Claude Van Damme will definitely be in the film after all.
On the production company's site, alongside the names of original cast members returning for the sequel, both Norris and Van Damme are listed as being part of the cast. That's about as official of a statement as we've gotten on their casting, and I'd probably go so far as to call their involvement a guarantee at this point. However, no word on whether John Travolta could still end up being part of the film as his name was rumored along with Norris and Van Damme in our last update. As for the story of this action sequel, well just the short plot synopsis at contains one big spoiler (though it will likely be revealed in the first trailer for the film), so we won't post it here, but you can check it out at Millennium Films official website if you feel so inclined. Sound good?
