Action superstars talk “Expendables 2” + video

And here’s another update on the probably most expected action movie “Expendables 2”, and what’s even more cool, is that we’re getting updates from stars of the film themselves!

Now, let’s dive into the details. In case you have no idea what all the fuzz is about: The biggest action movie of all time is being made.

This movie is called “Expendables 2”, and it’s a sequel to the Sylvester Stallone directed “Expendables”.

This sequel is being directed by Simon West, and here is the cast for the film: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Scott Adkins, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, and Chuck Norris.

Dolph Lundgren posted a message for his fans on his Facebook page about how’s the shooting is going on. This is what he had to say:

Hello from Sofia, Bulgaria!
I just finished the first week of shooting on “EXPENDABLES 2”. Great to be together with the old gang again. Gunner Jensen has cleaned up his act a bit, now he’s just an unpredictable drunk! I shot some cool action scenes at the studio with Sly (Stallone), Terry (Crews) and Randy (Couture), but next week things get really interesting when The Governator (Schwarzenegger), Bruce Willis, Van Damme and Chuck Norris show up for some major ass-kicking.

Later, Dolph

This is pretty awesome. There’s no word on whether Mickey Rourke is there, I don’t even recall anyone mentioning him even being in Bulgaria. There were some rumors, that he won’t be in the film, then we got some more rumors about Rourke being in the film (and get killed), but again, those were rumors.

Anyway, next update, we get from Jean Claude Van Damme, who, as it has been reported before, will play a villain in the upcoming “Expendables” sequel. This is what Van Dammage said:

Hi! To all my fans and friends on FB,
I am in Bulgaria now, getting ready for the shooting of the “Expendables 2” with Sylvester Stallone and the rest of a really fabulous cast. Sly is a very smart and amazing guy and really great to work with. I am looking forward to meeting Randy Couture on the set! Time and conditions permitting, I hope that we might get a chance to work out together and even practice some sparring techniques. Randy is very accomplished in UFC and I would love to see him in action. I think the action you will see in “Expendables 2” is going to really blow you away.

Talk to you soon.

Next update, we get from Terry Crews, who is also (like in the first film) a member of Stallone’s team of expendables. The following video was recorded by Crews himself, in his trailer, and he really seems like a very friendly, down to earth guy. Check it out below:

Next, we got some heavy artillery – Arnold Schwarzenegger himself. Reportedly, Arnold is already in Bulgaria, getting ready to shoot his scenes with Stallone and the crew. Schwarzenegger fan site reported the following message regarding “Expendables 2” and his upcoming film “The Last Stand” hitting theaters January 2013:

I fly in a few days to Bulgaria and stand for four days for Sly Stallone’s ‘Expendables 2′ in front of the camera. The rotation for the first real comeback film wich begins on the October 17th in New Mexico for ‘Last Stand’, an action Film, in which deals with drug smugglers, I play the sheriff.

Great! Its been a long time, I really missed seeing Arnie in a movie. Now we got him in “Expendables 2”, and then in “The Last Stand”.

And now, the desert – a word from a martial arts superstar in the making – Scott Adkins, who plays “Hector”, a mercenary on Van Damme’s team.

It’s an honour and a privilege to join the ranks of what can only be described as the biggest grouping of action stars in any film, ever! So many of these guys have been such an inspiration to me and so many others throughout their career. I’m excited to be reunited with my good friend Jean Claude Van Damme and I can’t wait to take on Stallone and his expendables. I may need some help though, so I’m bringing the spirit of Boyka (Adkins’ character from the “Undisputed” film series) along for the ride.”

Fantastic! We get a confirmation on Adkins’ character name, and also that Van Damme’s name in the film is “Jean Vilain”. Vilain, I suppose is for VILLAIN (nice one), however I’d prefer they would name him “Van Varenberg”, or “Jean Varenberg”, or even “Vilain Varenberg”. In my opinion, it would have been better.

All updates in this post have been gathered from 4-5 days, and are displayed here in no order. That’s all for now, folks. Stay updated, stay prepared for “Expendables 2”.
