The Expendables: Will Bolo Yeung Finally Kick Van Damme’s Ass?
The Expendables Scuttlebutt
According to Sylvester Stallone’s website (http://sylvesterstallone.com/), Sylvester Stallone will not be directing or writing The Expendables‘ second movie. For those of you who have been under a rock, The Expendables had a $70 million budget and earned over $275 million at the box office. The all-star cast included Stallone and his two business partners from Planet Hollywood, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger, as well as some of my favorite fantasy fodder like Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, and Mickey Rourke. Other stars included Randy Couture, Steve Austin, Terry Crews, Eric Roberts and the amazing Jet Li.
Sly wrote, directed and starred in The Expendables. When you find out Sly is writing, directing and starring in a movie, it’s time to ring the bell because that fight has been won. All that’s left is to choose your seat and watch the magic unfold.
“Stallone gave me a part in his next movie. But I ask him about the subject, about the story.” Van Damme tells the magazine. “He said, ‘You’re gonna make lots of money.’ I don’t want to hear that, I want to hear what was my character. He was unable to tell what it’s going to be.”[Stallone said:] ‘You know, uh, well, the fighting will be good.’[So I said:] ‘Sly, what is my character?’ So I didn’t do the movie.” the actor further points out.
