Personally, I am very glad to see that both Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger towards the ends of their careers (sadly, but true) were finally able to overcome their egos, and start working together on joint film projects.
First such project, if I recall, was the 1997 John Woo film “Face Off”, with Sly and Arnold as the two leads.
Then for some reasons the project got cancelled, and Cage-Travolta duo came on board, substituting Arnold and Sly.
Now in 2010, Schwarzenegger (still being the Governor of California) agreed (for free I assume) to appear in Stallone’s action blockbuster “The Expendables”.
He did, and according to the reaction of the fans – they wanted more. And “more” did come soon enough.
First Arnold will appear in a much bigger part in “Expendables” sequel, which is to be shown in the theaters in August. Then, he and Stallone will team up once again for the project entitled “The Tomb”, where Stallone plays a security specialist, while Arnie is the convict.
When I first read this news, I recalled an idea that I had some time ago, long before fist “Expendables” film was released. At that time I was thinking of a film project, where Arnold and Sly could join forces. And the thing is – the idea did come up to me
Who knows, maybe in another 2-3 years or so, this idea, or something similar to it, will be considered by a major film studio, and two of the biggest action icons of our time will once again work together.
