Chuck Norris & John Travolta for Expendables 2?Posted: July 30, 2011
The latest news has it that widely renowned actor John Travolta and ass-kickery legend, Chuck Norris are to take part in the upcoming, The Expendables sequel, The Expendables 2. The all-action, original adrenaline-fest had an all-star cast, consisting of: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Mickey Rourke, Steve Austin, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews and even a cameo from Arnold Schwarzenegger. It was confirmed by David Varod, who is head of the movie studios in Bulgaria where the movie will be shot, who stated the same characters would be back in the sequel, also mentioning Arnold Schwarzenegger, John Travolta, Chuck Norris, and Bruce Willis. As you can see, a completely muscle-packed cast. Although, kung-fu legend Li had not been mentioned in this list for the sequel.
Jean-Claude Van Damme, despite turning down a role in the first installment, will be playing one of the main bad guys in the upcoming sequel, which is said to start shooting in September. Although I haven’t seen the first one yet (completely gutted that I missed it at the cinema), this sequel, though I’m sure it won’t have the best storyline like the original, will be epic. I mean, this cast would be enough to get any action movie junkie excited in all ways humanly possible. And although Jet Li was not mentioned in the lineup for this movie, I really do hope he is in it; his nack for kicking the shit out of people is amazing. It’s just a shame that Liam Neeson won’t be in this…
The Expendables 2 is expected to hit cinema screens on 17th August, 2012.
