AICN Exclusive: Arnold Schwarzenegger joins the cast of THE EXPENDABLES!

Hey folks, Harry here... Just got off the phone with... ahem "my source" ahem... who let me know that Arnold Schwarzenegger is going to be playing Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in THE EXPENDABLES. He will be shooting for one day, and it seems that the Gov and Sly's character Barney Ross have some history back when the Gov was shooting CONAN THE BARBARIAN! Also - Ben Kingsley is out as the dirty bastard CIA sob, and Eric Roberts is in! Also, Mickey Rourke has finally signed on officially! The production is a month out from shooting, and reportedly according to (ahem) my source (ahem), the script has been being beaten into shape by Stallone who has been struggling to nail the right tonal balance of humor, action and emotional reality. So there you have it. Sly and Arnie are both in this film. I'd take that to the bank, I have a really good (ahem) source (ahem) on this!

    AWESOME!

    by sonnyfern

    Even if it is just a small role, it's still cool shit! This movie may not be the greatest cinematic achievment in the history of world, but man it's going to be FUN. I wish JCVD got off his high horse and decided to be in it.

    by Hufu Man

    Fucking amazing this is finally happening. It would be even better if Arnold was one of the stars, but still, fucking amazing. I for one would really like to see Arnie get back into the movie game after he's done with his whole Governor thing in CA in 2010. Hell yeah, this is very cool news.

    by IndyCollector

    it's not really the team-up we all have hoped for for the past 20 years or so. Now Stallone just needs to get Chuck Norris.

    How this should end

    by CorpseRide

    ...mission complete, Stallone returns to the Governor's mansion. Arnold (in his second scene of the movie) congratulates him, then they get into a little sparring conversation, building to a face off, neither backs down, then BOOM they swing their power punches at each other... freeze frame and SCENE. FADE AND ROLL CREDITS.<p> Yeah, that's how I'd play it.

  • Feb. 17, 2009, 6:27 p.m. CST

    This will be a day long remembered

    by BackRiverCatfish

    Does this mean Mickey Rourke won't be in Iron Man 2?

  • Feb. 17, 2009, 6:31 p.m. CST

    Cool news?

    by SenatorJeffersonSmith

    If this were 1994 I might be pumped for this, but right now it seems like they had their chance and they missed it...besides, after all these years if there is one thing we have learned its this-Chuck Norris could kill them all at the same time.

  • Feb. 17, 2009, 6:32 p.m. CST

    so it's a cameo or something?

    by The Amazing G

    I'm not quite clear, I mean how can he be in a movie if he's still the Governator?

  • Feb. 17, 2009, 6:32 p.m. CST

    Stallone goes 'meta-reality'??

    by Darth_Tarantino

    Arnie is going to play HIMSELF? This sounds...weird. So in the universe of this film, Arnie is a film star (as he really is) and Stallone isn't...I'm not sure guys. This sounds a bit strange to me, doesn't sit right for some reason. If Arnie plays the president or a grizzle, cigar-chomping old general for 5 minutes, then I'm in. Totally in. However...

    Not really, they've cast this the way we wanted them to cast IB. I.E, with 80s action stars.

  • Feb. 17, 2009, 6:45 p.m. CST

    Its not his fault the republicans in his senate are morons

    by bullet3

    They would rather have thousands of people lose their jobs than raise taxes in the state. Their the reason the budget isn't being voted through the legislature. He's done everything he can to get that damn budget agreement through.

  • Feb. 17, 2009, 6:45 p.m. CST

    Mr Zeddemore

    by Darth_Tarantino

    I didn't want 80's action star neccesarily for IB. But the original suggestion that Tarantino made years back of people like Michael Madsen always had my vote. Add to that Bruce Willis in Brad Pitt's role, Tim Roth, Mickey Rourke...I'd be sold.

    by Mr. Zeddemore

    Word. Maybe 80s action stars is the wrong wording... but it was a film for men. Willis would've nailed the scalps line in that trailer, because he's lived long enough that you'd buy it. Heck, if they got Punchdrunk Sandler he would've been great in Roth's role - can you imagine that guy smirking at the thought of scalping Nazis? Insane casting loss.

    by Forthesakeofhumanity

    ...isn't Arnie's endearingly epic surname spelled "Schwarzenegger" with an "ER" at the end instead of an "AR"? I'd hate to think all my DVD cases had typos on them!

  • Feb. 17, 2009, 7:06 p.m. CST

    Mr Zeddemore - PART II

    by Darth_Tarantino

    I think an equal dose of 80's action stars and more recent actors (like Madsen and Tim Roth) would have been perfect casting. And yes, word indeed on Willis delivering the 'scalps' line perfectly. I can picture it in my mind!! I would also have loved to have seen a vicious, skinny, evil looking Ian Hart in Eli Roth's place ;)

  • Feb. 17, 2009, 7:07 p.m. CST

    by a goonie

    I was just thinking the other day about how awesome The Expendables is going to be. I love old-school 80s action flicks and Rambo (as silly and ridiculous as it all was) showed that Stallone still knows how to blow shit up good and look fucking badass while doing it. I loved the ultra-violence on display in that movie and I love the idea of Stallone doing it again in a tough-guys-in-the-jungle flick. But the fact that this movie has Mickey Rourke and Jet Li in makes me already cream my pants. So that's too fucking awesome already.<br><br>But then, just a day or two ago, I was thinking about how I wish that Schwarzenegger could be in this flick. I wrote it off as not even being a possibility, so you can imagine my joy at seeing the headline of this article. Sure, I'd love to see Arnie go apeshit with everyone else in the jungle, but I'd rather have him as Governor than not have him at all. This just fucking rules. I want to see this movie so damn badly.

    by hegele

    Tarantino stated he never wanted to cast Sly, Arnie, etc. He didn't consider anyone but Pitt and he knew the other basterds were going to be Jewish kids. It ignites the themes of the script (propoganda), in the imagination of the nazi's, the basterds might as well look like sly and arnie, but in reality, they are kids. It isn't Dirty Dozen, its a different beast. Tarantino probably got the cast he wanted (aside from Pegg and a few others), i'd take that over talkbackers who didn't read or write the script. that being said, i hope this is good.

Who ever suggested him in a scene beating Dolph's ass in dead on.That would fucking rule. Either way I will go see this shit twice opening weekend. Sly is the fucking man, he gave us all the Rambo that we were dying to see in that last film. Brilliant sir, Brilliant.

    by MCVamp

    With the US and world economies as fucked up as they are, I don't think anyone could have made a major difference with California's current budgetary and economical problems. He's FAR from a great administrator, but but there are no magicians who would have put CA in the black while the rest of the country took a nose dive. The Governator never held a gun to people's heads and told them to take out do-or-die mortgages on massively overvalued properties, then fill said properties with stuff they couldn't afford. Though that might be a good movie.

    Damn, this is awesome, although, I'm slightly confused. So, he's playing himself? As the Govenator? That's kinda of lame. He should just be general, or US President or something.

    Stallone The Sly Talkbacker

    by Acquanetta

    I get the feeling that Stallone has stopped trying to pander to Hollywood, and has instead decided to cater directly to fanboys. This is unlikely to get him back on Hollywood's A-list, but it could yield some really fun genre flicks for the rest of us.

    by BringingSexyBack

    Whereas Sly has not nearly reached the peak of his Second Coming, Arnold's glory faded long ago. He was horrible in T3. Never saw Collateral Damage but it's not like anyone's brought that up as some kind of monster role. Wish Sly had not given him this cameo - Sly has an amazing cast already and we don't need Arnold taking up any of the spotlight. In other words - he'd be distracting.

    Too Late The Hero

    by Acquanetta

    In terms of being a blockbuster event, this is definitely about 15-20 years too late. If it had been released in the late 80s/early 90s, it would've been a tentpole release aimed at Memorial Day or July 4th weekend. But in 2010, it will primarily be a nostalgic ride for fanboys and those who grew up in the 80s and 90s. But I've always wondered when the 'ideal' Stallone/Arnold match up should've occurred. When you think about it, they were never quite on the same level. During Stallone's mid-80s prime, Arnold was still making films like Raw Deal and Red Sonja. And by the time Arnold began to take off in the late 80s, Stallone was already heading for his early 90s decline. Maybe 1994 was really the year we should've seen them team up? 1993 had been a big one for Stallone, while Arnold's stock had dropped down a notch. Both were still in their prime and the 80s style of action film was on its way out. Could there have been any greater swansong?

    Conan the King

    by Acquanetta

    I'd love to see Arnold return as Conan, but unfortunately, it's probably too late. Would Nu Image really consider Arnold a serious option for their proposed franchise? And if Arnold does return to film, would he really want his big comeback to be with Nu Image? I still can't believe the film came *so* close to happening...and then suddenly Arnold was governor of California instead. WTF? It's also ironic that Conan was already a king in the first few Robert E. Howard stories, and yet no one ever made a film version featuring that older, wiser Cimmerian.

    So it's obvious your source is Stallone, given his relationship with the site. The question is: after "Terminator 4: Salvation: Not Directed by Cameron: But We Have Batman: We Love Colons" and Schwarzenegger makes his cameo there (and c'mon, we all know it's going to happen in some form) and disappoints, will anyone still give a shit about this?

It would make every fanboy out there's day if Arnold played a general in one scene where he was in charge of the Expendables and gave them their orders or something. Then Arnie and Sly can trade quips and insults...similar to Arnie and Carl Weathers at the beginning of Predator...THAT WOULD BE FREAKING AWESOME...but this I dunno.

    Cobra--Kai

    by Droid

    There aren't really any real action stars anymore. The concept sells the movie now, not the star. It's why Vin Diesel's new film is F&F4. Does anyone say 'let's go see the new Shia flick'? No. They say 'Let's go see the new giant robot flick'. The exception to the rule is Will Smith. Hancock was a huge hit purely because Smith was in it. <p>Anyway, I never said this wasn't interesting. In theory it could be awesome, but lets not go crazy. All of these guys have made plenty of unwatchable festuring turds. <p>And lately discussing 'cool as hell flicks' (my words) isn't what AICN has been about. It's been about the mob-mentality, quasi-comedian cyncics who shoot down anything remotely different or anyone who expresses enjoyment for something they deem uncool.

    Those of us who of a certain age shall we say are getting excited because it's the dream film that has been at the back of our minds for the last 20 years. The reason why Slys career has burst into life again and Rambo was better than we had any right to expect was because the currunt (and Ive spelt it that way for a reason) batch of action stars suck compared to the old school guys. I just hope the CGI is kept to a minimum or even not there.

    by Gungan Slayer

    holy shit, i couldn't stop laughing when you brought this up. You're right-- rather than cast extras as the enemy army, just cast a bunch of old 80s stars. Chuck Norris, Kurt Russell, Rutger Hauer, Billy Dee Williams, Carl Weathers, Dirk Benedict. JUST FUCKING IMAGINE how BADASS that would be.

    on the mission at the beginning. And then at the end, when there are only 3 or 4 Expendables left and they're dug in, trapped by the enemy, with no chance of escape...BOOM!

It's the US cavalry to the rescue, with Arnie (The Prez) himself riding a howitzer – kind of a mickey take of when George W Bush arrived on the aircraft carrier, but less gay. If that's possible.

    by ThePilgrim

    Amazing film. Best one I've seen all year including 2008. If rouke does not win the Oscar I will be beyond pissed. Didn't even feel like a movie now that I think about it. It felt like a look into a real persons life. Glad to hear he's in the "Real" "Men on a Mission" film. Arnies is the icing on the cake.

    by ABking

    Nu Image is making some coin from Sly first with RAMBO (113 MILLION + another 80 million on dvd) and then with THE EXPENDABLES. They are reporting that CONAN will cost about 80 million. NU IMAGE can be Sly and Arnold's new house much like CAROLCO was in the 80's and 90's for them. Avi Lerner is their new KASSAR and VAJNA!

    STALLONE, I trust you...SCHWARZENEGGER's role...

    by ABking

    Hey Sly, I trust you wrote a great role for your pal Arnie, but if there is any doubt on your part, maybe it's best to change the role of real life Governor Schwarzenegger to a General role with Arnie in full military fatigues. Maybe the role you have written with Arnie playing himself will work, but it would have to be written smart, or the audience will hate the STALLONE/SCHWARZENEGGER team-up and it will leave a bad taste in the fans mouth. I trust you though since you are one helleva filmmaker. Oh, and if your pal Avi Lerner is reading this, just tell him to give Schwarzenegger CONAN like how you had RAMBO. Conan is Arnold's role, not some young 30 year old punk!

    by TurdontheRun

    Damn, only the Avatar trailer can surpass this in awesomeness. If Arnold is doing a cameo here, Sly should get him to play a fuller role in any sequels. The old governor with a military background who comes out of retirement to go on a future mission or something. that's if arnold returns to acting full time, of course, in 2011 (and if he does, then he'd better reteam with cameron for true lies 2). this is an 80's action wet dream of a film. if avatar is going to mercilessly fuck eyeballs, let expendables come back for sloppy seconds!!

    by ABking

    AVATAR is the only film that gets the juices flowing right now (and T4/Transformers 2)...but THE EXPENDABLES is going to own 2010. It will make CON AIR look like a female driven sequel to SEX AND THE CITY. Thats how macho the cast has made the film out to be. If Arnie is to make a sequel to The Expendables, better he not play himself going to war in the jungle. It would scream Arnold Schwarzenegger is as tough as his film characters and could really fight in a jungle. Too confusing for audiences. Sly needs to give Arnie the role of CHURCH or a tough as nails general. Even if as a cameo. Maybe have Arnie pump his arms up real huge for the shoot and have him and Sly flex their guns for the camera. Show that they are 60 but make it seem like they are in their 40's still...ala the PREDATOR scene. Oh, and lets hope Tom Arnold wasn't full of shit and that TRUE LIES 2 follows THE EXPENDABLES. Maybe Arnie will do KING CONAN and TRUE LIES 2 back-to-back just to match the coolness of Stallone's ROCKY BALBOA/RAMBO comeback!

    the Basterds and the Expendables. Why not? Two movies about groups of guys regulating on evil asses? What's not to love? This "choose a side" mentality is ignant. I have a chance to enjoy TWO movies, why not? Of course, if one DOES suck, there's the other. Win for me!

    Whoah, is Stallone taking requests?

    by Vern

    Scott Adkins, Danny Trejo, Eric Roberts and of course Schwarzenegger have all been mentioned on talkbacks as people who should be in this. We still gotta work on Michael Jai White and Gary Busey though. Also I would like to request that former governor Ventura could cameo as Barney's old Navy SEAL friend who he goes to for help finding the new Expendable.

    It was movies by Arnold, Stallone, Bruce Willis and Jackie Chan that filled my action needs... Get him and Jet Li again somewhere, anywhere! Make them cameo henchmen!

    FUCK anyone blaming ARNOLD for California's woes!

    by Big Dumb Ape

    This movie sounds more awesome by the day. Just work in Kurt Russell and then have cameos by Bruce Willis and Clint Eastwood AFTER the end credits (ala the Jackson scene in IRON MAN) and this will we awesomeness personified.<p>And fuck those saying ARNOLD is to blame for all of California's woes. For crying out loud, he's a moderate Republican having to deal with a DEMOCRATIC legislature, which has been 100% Democrat controlled for ages. Not to mention, the state is now $32 BILLION -- yes, that's billion with a "B" -- in the hole because living out here we give provide fucking state services left and right and you have bullshit things like property taxes that aren't even reflective OF the actual property. Add to which you have an exploding illegal alien population which is now at something like 7 or 8% of the state's population, who likewise according to a recent LA TIMES article cost the state over $5 BILLION a year in costs while other estimates put it as high as $10 billion. So even just think of that. If the state's $32 billion over budget, you're talking about a FULL THIRD of the state's deficit being dueto people who SHOULDN'T EVEN BE HERE.<p>For fuck's sake, even when Arnold DID want to raise taxes and trim the state government, the Democrats in the state legislature wouldn't let him do it...and NOW look where that's gotten you. Completely broke and shit up the creek in a state where the Left leaning populace STILL believes the state should be picking up the tab for just about everything free of charge.
