Could turn out to be good, I loved Rambo. I don't think there is a single Statham movie I've seen him in where I didn't at least enjoy watching him, even if the rest of the movie was 'meh'.

I will watch Statham and Jet Li in anything. They have made some really good action movies over the years. War being one of my favorites.

Sly Stallone sure knows how to go the distance.

I will be sure to keep a look out for this one.

I just hope it has the same sort of carnage as the last scene in Rambo(the new one). Man, I have this really strong urge to get my hands on a nintendo.

Bumping this thread for one bit of casting rumor -- Stallone said in an interview that he's close to adding another actor to this movie. Dolph Lundgren.

Sounds more like "The Unwatchables."

Lensing starts in February
Oh, fuck you, Variety. Fuck you.

Still waiting for the news that Chuck Norris, Wesley Snipes and Jean-Claude Van Damme are being added.

if they add Chuck, the movie will implode from pure testosterone.

Wesley Snipes can't do it, isn't he still wanted for tax evasion?

The story going around is that Stallone offered a part to Van Damme who turned it down for who knows what reason (he's doing another Universal Soldier movie for crying out loud!!!), and the part was then offered to Lundgren.
