The Expendables 2 - Anyone Keen?

I am! Quite liked the first one, thought it was a hoot.

Stallone, Statham, Li, Lundgren, Crews.

Willis, Schwarzenegger, Van Damme. Norris.

Possibles:
Travolta, Cage, Sheen, Austin, Banderas.

See? Thoughts?

I am. I thought the first movie was a great action flick and I'm looking forward to the second flick.

Re: The Expendables 2 - Anyone Keen?

I'm glad that Jean-Claude Van Damme and Chuck Norris are onboard. They failed to pull together a real dream cast in the first one. It's still a problem, but at least they have Van Damme and Norris, along with what looks to be a slightly larger role for Arnie.

I'm boycotting if there's no Michael Dudikoff and Jeff Speakman.

Steven Segal, Cynthia Rothrock, Billy Blanks and Don The Dragon Wilson would have also been a nice touch too, but I am totally in.

Re: The Expendables 2 - Anyone Keen?

Same here - the first one was great.

I do think they should have gone the female of the species route for the sequel though- teaming, say, Sigourney Weaver, Linda Hamilton, Angelina Jolie, Michelle Yeoh...

Re: The Expendables 2 - Anyone Keen?

I'm certainly interested. Especially if Willis and Schwarzenegger get expanded roles.

Throwing in some women would have been a nice touch. It seems Stallone wants to keep this 100% male.

Re: The Expendables 2 - Anyone Keen?

I know it's just supposed to be a popcorn action flick harkening back to the 80s... but why exactly was Lundgren's character accepted back into the group at the end of the movie. Didn't he try to kill Jet Li and Stallone?

Yeah, that was the one and only problem I had with it.

Re: The Expendables 2 - Anyone Keen?

Hell yeah i'm in!

The first one was pure gold in entertainment value.. shitty story, not so good acting but one hell of action.. basically the entire 80s and 90s distilled into a single movie!

I loved and nearly passed out when the guy opened up with his automatic shotgun to clear the passage.. i laughed so hard i nearly doubled over

I also love how those old school action stars make fun of and celebrate themselves at the same time.. kudos to them for not taking themselves too serious!

His character had a problem with drugs. Now he doesn't. Simple. He was part of the team originally (see opening scene in Somalia).

I'm not sure about Simon West, not a fan of his Tomb Raider movie. But he did doa good job with Con Air.
