Expendables 2 featuring more Willis?

TheExpendables.jpgI do feel a little cheated that the marketing for The Expendables focuses so much on the appearance of Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis, and yet we only see them on screen for such a short amount of time. From the beginning I had hoped that the big name action stars would be together for the entire film.

Now that The Expendables has been doing so well it looks like Stallone is starting to think just like that as he considers what's in store for the sequel and reveals some of his ideas, one having more Willis, and does that mean more Schwarzenegger?

He doesn't actually say as yet, but he's been chatting on his Twitter account about some of his ideas as they pop-up, now bear in mind although these are direct from Sylvester Stallone himself, they are a long way off reality, and remember the route that the new Rambo took before getting canned, its story was all over the place.

Anyway, he revealed that he just met with Bruce Willis and had a cracking idea for his character in the sequel to The Expendables:

”Had dinner with Bruce Willis last night. I want him in EXPENDABLES II as a super villain. What do you think?”

I caught Sylvester Stallone's comments through JoBlo who also realise the importance of what that might mean, Willis would play a villain and therefore it would possibly mean that the CIA had turned against The Expendables in some way, or that he was a mole within the CIA. Sounds interesting, especially with Willis as a baddie, he would make a great bad guy.

”I am thinking what would be the most dangerous places in the world to set the sequel?”

So he is actually actively looking for advice and comments online, and mine would be easy, if you're going to hint at an eighties reunion in the film, then in the sequel actually do it. Bring Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger back for the entire film, don't just have them in a scene to tease us.

Where would you set the next Expendables, and who would you want to see in the cast?



The Expendables is everything I hoped it would be, I'm seeing it again. If you haven't seen it yet, GO!
