Okay, another “Expendables 2” update here, and there’s some interesting info on why Mickey Rourke is not in the movie along with other action superstars.
Before, there was a rumor, that Stallone and Rourke had some financial disagreements, in other words – money was the factor. However, according to ContactMusic, that’s not the real case. Rourke had the following to say about his participation in the “Expendables” sequel:
“I did the first one because I felt that I owed Sly a favour. He gave me a job in ‘Get Carter’ when I couldn’t f**king shine my shoes, you know what I’m saying? And that was that. The other thing around that, I had never said I was going to be in it. I think the producers announced it but nobody discussed it with me.”
Quite interesting. So, if Rourke did say those exact (or not quite) words, then it means the Tool character in the first expendables movie was only a “favor” back to Stallone, for helping out Rourke back in the 2000s. Shame.
On the other hand, I looked at Rourke’s film list on IMDB, and it just might be true, considering the films he’s been in: Animal Factory (plays a fag in prison), Get Carter (thank you Sly), The Pledge (haven’t seen), They Crawl (smelly B-movie)…
Well, now if Mickey Rourke is not in “Expendables 2”, then I hope the script does include some sort of explanation why he isn’t.
Would have been great if they didn’t have to “kill him off” just yet, to maybe have an open door for Tool in the possible 3rd “Expendables” movie.
Another update (this seems to have become a regular!) comes from Jean-Claude Van Damme, as he shared some more pictures of him and the crew on the set of “Expendables 2”. Pictures also feature Randy Couture, Terry Crews and Scott Adkins. Take a closer look below.
