Expendables 2 adds Chuck Norris and John Travolta

Bulgarian studio exec spills the casting beans

 
The head of a Bulgarian film studio where The Expendables 2 is to start shooting in September has name-checked a few new actors who will be appearing in the film. 
 
"Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, John Travolta, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke. Who else? Of course, Bruce Willis,”  David Varod, CEO at Nu Boyana Studios, told news website Novanite in an interview. 
 
As well as adding John Travolta and Chuck Norris to the list of stars, Varod also talked of director Simon West in glowing terms. 
 
“He is also a name. He is already here and has started working on the film,” Varod said, before adding. “I believe the sequel will be better than the first movie."
 
It was already widely reported that Jean-Claude Van Damme would play a secondary villain in the film, with Willis the main baddie. 
 
Here's hoping Travolta also pulls villain duty so we can see more of what made Face/Off such a great action flick. 

Will Van Damme and Willis make great bad guys? Will Chuck Norris get to do his signature roundhouse kick? Let us know below!

      Here's what needs to happen: Keep Norris, axe Travolta, bring Sly back on as the director. Do all that and you may very well have a worthy sequel on your hands.

      If they coax Chuck Norris into the film then surely they can get Steven Seagal?

      Sly is not a great director himself so kinda glad to see a change, but Simon West!? He's done one decent film - Con Air - but even that was dicey direction-wise. Plus that was 14yrs ago! He's done nothing good since! And why no mention of Jet Li? Has he bailed? I'd love to see him go rogue from the team and round up a few of his own mates to take on Sly and his boys. Imagine it now, Jet Li opens the door to introduce his own team and in walks.....Tony Jaa, Donnie Yen, Mark Dacascos, Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung......all playing a team of badasses!! Awesome!

      Oh what a surprise. Someone doesn't like Dalidab behaving like a perverted creepy b*****d, and Dalidab throws his toys out of the pram. Dalidab: I say again. You ARE creepy. You DO come off as perverted. I couldn't come off as more a paedo than you if I tried. Most of your casting choices that aren't completely moronic usually have something to do with who you'd like to see naked. And surprise surprise they're usually all very young looking men. And threatening to bring up the big C again? I thought you were all sorry Dalidab? That you'd never say such horrible things again? Nope, of course you will. Because you're the same pathetic whining little b***h-c**t you always have been. When someone doesn't like what you say you throw your toys out of the pram and turn into a foul mouthed prissy little b***h. f**k off, take your lameass threats with you, go cry alone in your room masturbating over teenage boys as seems to be your usual practise. c**t.

      Yeah what writerdave said hahaha dalidab you don't do yourself any favours with your comments,i understand people standing up for themselves but you do make yourself sound like a creepy paedo,just because you're homosexual doesn't excuse it,as a heterosexual i wouldn't post comments about young looking girls and would find it equally as disgusting as your lust for young male actors,so from now on please keep your depraved sexual fantasies to yourself.

      So... you're not going to mention the big c... and then you go and wish we all die of it in the space of two hours. Nice going there mate, way to prove us wrong. Just f**k off. Seriously. We are NOT being homophobic. AT ALL. If someone was perving on teenage girls the same way you perv on teenage boys hell yes we would say something (I certainly would). You just don't shut up about it dalidab- you go on about your fantasy boys ad nauseum, so much that we can easily spot the pattern- they all look about twelve. Stop being a creepy weirdass little b***h then crying hate crime when someone has a problem. We're not being homophobic, you're genuinely being a creepy little b*****d. So go 'court' your 26 year old whatever, just leave your sex dreams off this film website. Your sexuality has nothing to do with it. Stop playing the martyr- we don't not like you because you're gay, we don't like you because you're a disturbing psychotic little perv.

      Dalidab don't be clever, it doesn't suit you. You know full well what we meant. Your motives for having jedward, tom daley, those disney twins that look about ten and whoever else you're currently tossing off to are more transparent than a polished glass window. You're not fooling anyone, you sycophantic little pervert.

      I thought this was a movie website - not frickin Jeremy Kyle!! Dalidab - in all fairness mate you come on here everysingle day and 99% of the stuff that comes off your keyboard is either a) complete illiterate nonsense or b) the sexual opinions of a twisted madman! It's like John Doe in Se7en "spilling his whole life onto paper". Why don't you give us all a break from your idiotic scribblings and just do one! Writerdave & Murphy = legends. Dalidab = nonce!

      The first film was one of my guilty pleasures last summer, I loved it, this follow up is gonna be epic, what great additions to the cast. I only hope it doesn't get too overloaded though, too many action stars might make it messy and not give everyone enough screen time (the first one had that problem to a degree). I mean there can always be an Expendables 3 or 4 (lol) ... I do think certain comments on here are a little out there, in terms throwing in some random minor celebs or swimming champs ... seems to be a bit on the silly side. Perhaps if they do a spoof movie it could be a group of fatties waddling into battle : The Expandables anyone? Okay, now i'm being silly ...

      @dalidab, how come every time i come on here and there is an argument, you always seem to in the middle of it? No-one is actually saying you are a peado, people are saying you simply come across as a bit of a creepy b*****d with your constant references to 17 year old Tom Daley. If there was someone on here constantly, and i mean CONSTANTLY, going on about how hot Annasophia Robb(18 years old) or whomever was, it would come across as being a creepy dirty old b*****d, and we would ask the person to stop. You are gay, so what? no-one here cares, but it becomes annoying when you continue to throw it in our faces that you are gay, and then act a martyr when people ask you to stop talking about guys you simply wanna f**k. Not once on this website have i seen guys constantly talking about woman they wanna shag, not once. And then when you are losing said argument, you completely lose all credit by telling people to die of cancer. I mean, dude, really? On the internet telling people to die of cancer? It shows that there just an amazing amount of emotional immaturity, and for that i feel sorry for you. Maybe your parents never loved you i don't know, but you can't take it out on the people who like to comment on this website and not expect a backlash. Simply put, you need to grow up. Movie sounds good though :)

      Plain and simple Dalidab is a c**t. A mindless cretin, a malignant ball of creepy ooze. I completely lost the plot of this thread.... Which film are talking about again? Oh yeh Expendables 2 should be good, if not another mindless money maker.

      @ jaykays hat The reason Seagal won't be in an Expendables film is because they're distributed by Millennium Films, whom Seagal worked with on "Mercenary For Justice." Millennium claimed that Seagal was unprofessional and would show up late on set and rewrite the script whilst shooting. Seagal counter sued and vowed he would never work with them again. Essentially, he's not going to be in it because his ego is bigger than Jet Li's balls.
