Schwarzenegger And Willis To Have "Substantial" Roles In EXPENDABLES 2?

Published at: Sept. 7, 2011, 2:42 p.m. CST

Nordling here.

Realize this is a bit late as it made the rounds yesterday, but I thought it was worthy to post about.  As we know, Simon West is directing the second installment of THE EXPENDABLES, and many of the actors are returning for another go-round, including Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren (who really was damn good in the original film, the best thing in it, imo) and Mickey Rourke.  Now rumors are coming around that Chuck Norris and Jean Claude Van Damme may be coming to play as well, which is fine with me.  If they could throw in Spuds McKenzie and that guy who talks fast in the old FedEx commercials, I'm all for it.  Hell, let's get Ralph Macchio with his Special Crane Kick Of Murder to go after the bad guys.  It would be perfect.

But the news that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis are returning, and that their roles will be beefed up (so to speak) makes me really happy.  I enjoyed the hell out of the original, although I could definitely see room for improvement.  But Terry Crews' Magical Automatic Shotgun pretty much ruled the movie for me, and if that piece of Willy Wonkaesque machinery shows up again, I'll be a happy man. 

But I'm curious to see what Arnold and Bruce's characters would be.  In the first film, if I remember correctly, Arnold was the head of another group of mercs, possibly a rival to Barney Ross's.  And Bruce Willis as the guy who sends them on their way, well, he seems to have something a bit sinister about him, and I'd be interested in seeing what he really does for the U.S. government.  These three going head-to-head-to-head would be fine by me.

And one request - for a movie called THE EXPENDABLES, they didn't seem all that expendable, as no one really died.  Not saying kill people off arbitrarily, but it would be nice to see someone sacrifice something instead of smiling through every explosion.  THE EXPENDABLES 2 comes out next year.

Nordling, out.

    The first film was crap. Everybody could tell that Terry Crews was just place holding for Wesley Snipes, and Statham was doing the same for a very absent Van Damme.

    Sue me cineastes but I really liked THE EXPENDABLES and will def check out the sequel. Yes - in many ways it was an *almost* movie, but rumor has it that Stallone has already edited together a much improved 'directors cut' which will prob see the light of day in the run up to the sequel. RAMBO, ROCKY BALBOA, THE EXPENDABLES... keep em coming old boy!

    Maybe some kind of villain that isn't so whimpy?

    by ckone

    The guy from Dexter was just too wishy washy for me, too unsure of himself to be a worthy bad guy in EX 1. Hopefully the next installment will have a much more worthy adversary. I loved the movie for all of it's balls out badassery. Can't wait for the next one, how can you go wrong with more Willis, Aanold and Stallone. And please bring Stallone back to AICN for that awesome question and answer segment....He is a great sport to go through that with us geek fans.Bruce has some splainin' to do with his last effort in the Die Hard films, so if he comes back, better be prepared with some good answers, or at least admit that the last one was a over the top, nuetered mess.

    by TheMcflyFarm

    SPOILERS He died in the first movie, so not sure how they could bring him back. Maybe a flashback? Also, he really wasn't the best thing about the first one. You could barely understand him when he talked. I understood him more when he was speaking russian in Rocky IV, and I don't know a lick of russian.

    Expendables wasn't crazy enough. And rourke was a snooze.

    by knowthyself

    But it had its heart in the right place. I'd love to see this evolve into a series for classic action stars.

  • Sept. 7, 2011, 3:33 p.m. CST

    Not going to be picky...

    by vicmackey1268

    The Expendables went old school in its set design and action, and while the camera was shaky the action at the end with every character having his own style was pretty amazing. If people didn't like it, maybe this type of thing isn't really for them, but as far as old school dudes wanting to be cool and kick ass, I'm down Now, as for those two getting more screen time...awesome...seeing all 3 even for a few minutes with cheesy dialog was great...if the two teams really feud in this one I can't wait to see what Arnold and Stallone would do to each other... However...Sly is in MUCH better shape and I can't see Arnold doing nearly as much strenuous lifting for the role... As for bad guy...Willis is always fun but Roberts was a fantastic bad guy and Angel Batista was a nice add-on. Point is, idc how much screen time these legends get, as long as a certain Twilight star doesn't get cast this is a guaranteed ticket from me.

  • Sept. 7, 2011, 3:35 p.m. CST

    Carl Weathers

    by vicmackey1268

    has to be on Arnold's team...I really don't see how he can't be in the next one, and have some sort of boxing match with Dolph...however....if that did happen, I'm pretty sure my face would explode from the giant smile I'd have during it.

    Anyone who can go toe-to-toe with Ed Harris (twice), match Val Kilmer at his peak in the old west, lead about half a dozen seperate cinematic Seal and special forces teams across various films, including one consisting of Charlie Sheen, Dennis Haysbert, and Bill Paxton, and who has fought both Aliens and the (original) Terminator, has more than earnt their action man stripes in my book. And how about Kiefer Sutherland in Jack Bauer mode too, while we're at it...

    by emteem

    ...Randy Coture was in Van Damme's place not Statham. The first one was a giant disappointment. A great 80's cast and a great 80's premise ruined by modern style photography and editing. The fights were all filmed way to close and chopped to hell. You have things like Steve Austin and Randy Coture both dressed in black having a fight in the dark with the camera being waved around like two feet from them and then edited past any point of coherence.

    awful film. Expendables was given a free pass glowing review after harry knowles contractually asked sly to promote his film on this site. Harry knowles slept through inception. A film which he didnt like. Visually inception was the best film of last year and was one of the biggest grossing. Expendables was god awful. A shoddy stale cheefest, starring bruce willis and jet li excluded, a bunch of 1980s action has beens. and that walking piece of balsa wood jason statham.

    Dude, I was really excited about what you were going to say and then you were like "nvm" lol....sigh...as for the namecalling, I really don't like it... But on sites like this you do have to realize posting something so absolutely on a forum about a movie that a ton of people liked/watched multiple times, then having the thing you posted by very very wrong, the crazies on here will shred you up.... finally...it boggles my mind so I figure I'll ask....if you didn't really like the movie why bother posting something like that on a forum about the sequel to the movie you didn't care for? Idk....anywho...sorry you thought it was mediocre, I loved it...and it was pretty lame that Dolph is magically alive after he even says "Im dying"

    Agree about having a woman....now, she's not badass but Bullock said she's love to be in it when they asked her if he mentioned anything before the first film came out My vote? See how Gina Carano's "Haywire" looks cuz that is one badass chick. Oh and please no more Zoe Saldana...I personally think she was hotter when she was blue and 8 feet tall...

    For all the hype about being an "80s movie"...

    by Acquanetta

    ...The Expendables felt (and looked) more like a typical Statham flick. It was okay, but hardly the "ultimate 80s action-fest" it was hyped as. I get the feeling this will be more of the same, with most of the actors people want to see limited to extended cameos. Bruce might get some decent screentime, but Arnold's currently only expected to shoot for roughly a week. Hardly what I'd call a "substantial role".

    I hear ya. I usually like to be absolutely sure about something before I post on hear so that I don't get my head chewed off. Makes me really wish there was an edit button on here. As for the movie, I didn't hate it. Maybe mediocre is too strong a word. But I did find it a bit disappointing compared to how good it could have been for me. It just felt like they put in these guys that look big and tough, but weren't really action movie stars. Couture, Crews, Austin, and even Lundgren (to a lesser extent) are not who I think of when I think "action star". With Willis and Schwarzenegger in more substantial roles, I'm hoping the sequel will be more like the movie I had in my mind when Sly announced the first one.

    A lot of those 80s films were also filled with inane and cliche-driven scripts, bad production value, and were shoveled out to VHS in droves by Golan-Globus. Rose-colored glasses, my friend.<P> There was simplicity, yes, but they weren't any better.

    McFly, action stars

    by vicmackey1268

    ya at first I was like holy crap they got awesome people in that...then I was like hold on, um...not really...Couture, Crews, Austin in major character roles...ummmm However, then found out that Stallone had been really getting into MMA and almost every guard/henchman is an MMA fighter because he really dug the sport...putting Couture in was probably his way of showcasing that sport/style in his movie. Austin was always badass but movie star, ya no...but everyone always says wrestling is fake and taking that world and putting in against MMA was probably a fun idea to him... Crews has been "that one buff/funny black guy" in tons of films so I'm glad he got to show the action side of him, even if it meant returning to "funny" for the Ice Cube TBS show (i put funny in "" cuz the show sucks).... Dolph is an action star, especially overseas...he's been in just as many direct to dvd movies as Van Damn if not more....if the movie had been done in the 90's I'm sure Goldberg would've been in instead of Stone Cold. Also, lets face it, this movie could've easily been Tango & Cash pt 2 and been just as horrible...but no, they put the transporter on the nose of a real plane and used a real kick ass shotgun and Sly broke his neck hitting the real cement wall...in my mind it was badass

  • Sept. 7, 2011, 4:33 p.m. CST

    Past their prime

    by vicmackey1268

    I hate that...what is their prime? In his "prime" Sly also did Stop or my mom will shoot, a film that even he says was a low point...plus there was Oscar and Rocky 5...so what qualifies things as "their prime".... Stone Cold did 1 other theater film and it was decent for a wrestler's movie, so his prime in acting...well idk when that will ever happen, but he was still fun Willis was in a movie about old people being spies...arguably that's him past his prime....but now he's in a bunch of thrillers/action movies coming up and who knows if he will even do hand to hand combat in this? Arnold...Collateral Damage was also a decent flick...nowhere near as good as his "prime" days of T2/Action Hero/Kinder/etc but the guy was a politician for a while and his place in this could very well end up being a "return to form" instead. So I fail to see how the "old has-been" comment applies...every one is in other films, making money, making fans happy...so none are has-beens Especially Sly who went from great shape in Balboa, to steroid training that got him arrested with a bag of pills during Rambo to lean and friggin jacked for expendables...lets see if, at your age, you can do that stuff....i mean come on, watch the special features, all those guys busted their asses for this movie. So the debate of washed up/has been/past prime is really a matter of do you like the actor now or not, but it's not a realistic argument...these guys will all be doing films for a while and will continue to make fans happy.

    80's action movies

    by vicmackey1268

    are dumb...there is NO DEBATE...Running Man is about a guy in tights on a game show and the fights/dialog/bad guy all were terrible. Commando is just a buff guy shooting for 2 hours Rambo is the same thing but with a distraught skinnier person in the jungle with stick weapons Cobra...welll...eesh Were they bad production values? Well for the most part, ya...they were done on limited budgets and thrown out to audiences and people gobbled them up I think the whole "throwback" part was that it was actual explosions, a real set instead of all cgi, actual buff characters instead of a normal looking Bourne-type, and a ridiculous plot with cheese dialog In short I think it was more an homage to what made those 80's films "classics", not tryin to be an actual 80's movie. I loved Rocky/Rambo/Commando/etc because they were brainless fun (Rocky being the BEST FRIGGIN PICTURE WINNER BTW)... If you didn't like the film or couldn't follow what was happening...that sucks for you...but I saw and practically felt every hit, especially the big fights at the end in the tunnels... And the "poorly lit night fight" was still obvious who was who...Couture had the hat, Stone Cold was bald...it was like SWAT where you couldn't tell who just was killed until later... Bourne/Quantum of Solace/The Kingdom/etc were all fast-edited action films and I made out more in this than all those combined

  • Sept. 7, 2011, 4:49 p.m. CST

    by vicmackey1268

    gave us Predator...which has the number 1 most manly moment in all of cinema history...Arnold putting on the mud and lighting the torch and screaming out into the jungle...showed my gf that and she got goosebumps I agree that 80's movies get brought up as a benchmark and I hate it....its really the moron 90's kids that had the 80's parties and talked about how awesome the 80's were and it's like dude, I'm 24...I was 3 years old in 1989...you were too, don't pretend like you know anything about it Breakfast Club, 16 Candles, etc...all overrated. But some you kind of have to see just to be in the loop during conversations... If you asked me to debate Commando/Cobra/Running Man against The Rock, Face/Off, and Con Air...well, the last three were infinitely better...it's just the generation I grew up in....I'm not going to pretend like the 80's were the best times because they weren't...but they did provide entertainment that I will always think is great to put on in the background during a workout session

  • Does anybody really care about the Expendables? It's garbage garbage GARBAGE, the idea was cute for the novelty but now it's just about milking more money out of a dead era out of a bunch of dead OLD celebrities who won't realize their time is up and they're DONE THEY ARE FUCKING DONE AND IT'S TIME TO MOVE ON GRACEFULLY INSTEAD OF HOLDING ONTO SOMETHING THEY ARE NOW RUINING. Are there NOT enough STUPID movies out there in this day and age? Do we STILL NEED TO FUCKING "TURN OUR BRAINS OFF" in EVERY SINGLE FUCKING MOVIE THAT COMES OUT?!?! What a horrible HORRIBLE time to be a moviegoer these days, it's just trash and garbage churned out either to hit your nostalgia button so you vomit out money or for just outright STUPID people who now make up most of the population. Face it, the creative and ONCE magical Hollywood is over and done with, and what's leftover in the ashes is some cancerous fucking shit-stenched TUMOR that just feeds on incompetence and mediocre vile PUKE HACK WASHED UP GARBAGE. Hm gee this is great I hope they put in a Facebook joke or something, Mass Audiences love that, thank god that won't EVER be dated EVER. How CAN there ever be another young Spielberg or Nolan or Hitchcock or what the fuck EVER when there is no great cinema LEFT to inspire?! It's just a vicious cycle of dumbing down each successive generation, kids today are trained and genetically engineered to be STUPID IGNORANT HELPLESSLY DEPENDENT ON EVERYTHING ELSE BUT THEMSELVES SHELLS PROGRAMMED TO SPEND MONEY ON A BUNCH OF FUCKING MATERIAL SHIT, so hey great hope you enjoy your Adam fucking Sandler "films" and crotchless facefucking emo Spiderman and fake rubbery muscles big ass fucking headed Superman, you get exactly what you deserve for making excuses for this stupid shit drivel.

    you posted that long thing on this forum...meaning you knew it was a forum on the arnold/willis stuff and you still used your anger to write a long story....I don't know why you decided it was worth it, but ok.... Actually, at the end of that rant, I partially agree...the stuff people make these days sucks...Abduction is being marketed as an amazing action movie but I'm never ever watching it...ever... You still have Drive, TinkerTailorSoldierSpy, Coriolanus, J Edgar, Ides of March, and a ton of other Oscar-worthy movies....I'm not saying they'll all be classics but I'm sure a few will be worthy of you....I for one enjoy the mindless movies with stars like Sly, Willis, Arnold...I'd much prefer an Expendables 5 over a Twilight or Paranormal Activity or even another Green Lantern... And to answer your question...Sly personally funded his own investigation team to hunt down people pirating Expendables on their computers and even said he'd do something about it if someone told him they knew of someone who pirated his movie....so he cares about it....just like the people who have spent 275 million dollars just in theaters...and I'd much rather have that money go to this film than another pre-teen pos film...oh and I hope the new Spiderman bombs big time

  • Just a terrible movie, honestly. The first scene is proof. Everyone is just standing around trying to say something cool and it never happens.

    The first one was enjoyable enough i thought

    by Judge Dredds Dirty Undies

    The dialogue was fucking awful, the plot actual I didnt have massive issues with, although there was some absurdities I could have done without. But, I dug the action unlike some of you. Yeah some of the fighting could have been better filmed, but still i think a lot of talkbackers are being unfair. I'm looking forward to the next one especially in light of this news, just hope they have a better script and that Simon West delivers on the action.

    The basketball court scene with the "next time I'll deflate all your balls" was horrible...giving Statham a love interest just for the heck of it was lame... But the last 30+ minutes were great and the lead up was just fun. Like it didn't make sense why the flames wouldn't go up into the jet even when they were flying away with the fuel STILL dumping...but it's a friggin action movie so who cares people who completely bash this film do it cuz they think it's fun...this is a good movie for what it's trying to be....not everything has to be an Oscar contender

    Jesse Ventura

    by The Game Master

    Give Jesse Ventura a role. Maybe as part of Arnold's team. Or maybe as the villain! Imagine if Sly and Arnie and Bruce all fight, then team up to take on "Boss" with their pistols and knives, and "Boss Ventura" pulls out "Old painless" and opens fire!!!!!! Saying something like "Here's a real man's gun!" Just having Ventura on the poster with that damn minigun would rule! Or, Jesse--not Arnold--could be president, thus giving added dimension to that awesome joke in the church (Arnie is upset not because he ISN'T president, but that his bigger rival IS . . .)

    So in an above post I said my gf got goosebumps from the scene with arnold screaming, torch lit, in the jungle and how I think it's the most manly moment in action movie history... well my girlfriend wanted to watch the entire movie after that...so we did... about 2 months later we went to Six Flags and it was during her time of the month so of course she was a little cranky....well we went to the water park and I asked "are you sure you wanna go in a bunch of water...you know...right now?" she says, while chewing a lot of gum..."I ain't got time to bleed"....laughed my ass off.

    Arnold and Seagal...

    by Hipshot

    Were together in Vegas with Wesley Snipes and JVCD (my instructor was Steve "Sanders" Muhammad, once considered the fastest man in the world, and Snipes' bodyguard at the time) and Seagal was being Seagal, and Arnold was cracking jokes on everyone ("martial artists over here...dancers over there he said, looking at JCVD--and JC actually walked to where Arnold indicated!) At one point, Seagal asked my instructor who the hell he was, and Snipes replied that he was one of the world's foremost martial artists. (Mr. Muhammad is not tall...but lethal). Seagal continued probing, and poking at Steve's washboard midsection, and finally Steve looked at Seagal's gut and asked if he was still training. "Every day" Seagal said. Arnold quipped "what? Pumping your knife and fork?"

    by Ben_Richards_Bomb_Collar

    http://madvilletimes.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/SchwarzeneggerBicycleDC.jpg No doubt he'll show up in ridiculous shape (for a guy in his 60s). You think he's gonna let Stallone look more ripped in their first movie together? Anyway, hopefully the plot is what I think most people wished for in a sequel: Arnold has his own rival mercenary crew (Van Damme, Seagal, Carl Weathers?). Opening scene can be something like Stallone's team are going out on a mission and right before they get to their objective, Schwarzenegger's team beats them to the punch and rescues/kills who they were going after. Stallone and Arnold bitch at each other; Stallone is like "this was our mission", Arnold is like "you guys are too slow, we're the real badasses". Willis hires Stallone's crew again for a big mission. They get there, realize they've been set up and find Arnold's team is also there and being set up. They decide they have to team up to take down the real bad guy (Willis). I mean, this shit writes itself.

    by Bass Ackwards

    But the first movie sucked. All the ramped up shaky cam action and WWF fight scenes were just lame and boring. If the entire premise of your film is a big bad ass action film, you should have some big bad ass action sequences. There was nothing memorable about this flick. Plug in the shitty dialogue (look how care free our banter is, isn't that fun and clever?!) and you had a real waste of a film. Adding Simon West into the mix doesn't increase my hopes for the sequel. Its like they've given up and are just aiming this one for mediocrity.

    Arnold getting in shape

    by Hipshot

    Please. He can look fabulous. Remember--Stallone was never in "world class" shape. He was in TERRIFIC shape--for an actor. Arnold was seven-times world champion in a sport where it's all about how you look, selecting appearance over performance. He'll never look the way he used to, but then neither will Stallone. The last time we really saw his torso (Rocky) he looked quite lumpy, if tremendously strong and muscular. Didn't take his shirt off for "Rambo" and in "Expendables" he was so covered with tattoos that we couldn't really see much of the way he looked. In great shape? Sure. Could he have ever won even a state-wide bodybuilding contest? That's a "maybe." Is he a genuinely tough guy? You bet. (Although one of the great lost opportunities in tough-guy cinema is that he and Mickey Roark never really went mano y mano in "Get Carter." What a pity.) He does NOT want to get into a pose-down with Arnold, any more than Arnold would want to get into a smack-down with Sly.

    by vicmackey1268

    figured they kind of went together... anywho...I got the insane amazing opportunity to actually talk with Arnold when my gf and I were visiting the capital and he was in that day...naturally she giggled...wait, scratch that...I giggled...and she asked him questions about his views on movies, acting, art, theater, and of course politics... I give the guy credit, in person he doesn't dance around answers...everything he said was just mindblowing...despite his record in office and people's views of him he's a really smart guy and knows what he's talking about....same can be said of the mean and untrue crap about Sly's mental capacity...both men are very unique and genuine and it was great talking with Arnold, even if it was for no more than 6 or 7 minutes. Finally...if by reacharound you mean you have a vagina and you're a hot girl, then yes I'd give you a very very comforting reach around...however, if you have a penis, the only reach around i'd do is to rip ur own dick off, where you'd pass out from the pain, then when you'd woken up you'd be eating your own brains Hanibal-style and since you would've know what was going on I'd convince you that it was a dildo you were butt-f*cking and enjoying, and not your own dick you were using....

    Ralph Macchio...

    by Hipshot

    Would indeed be hysterical. Why the hell couldn't he play some beaurocratic weenie? He isn't very busy these days.

    Yes! Sho Kosugi!

    by Stegman84

    He's a Ninja...fuck, he's *the* ninja, throw a role his way for sure. Plus he still looked pretty healthy in that Ninja Assassin movie a couple years back. It's a shame that Brion James is no longer with us, he would have been a definite shoe-in for a bad guy role. Maybe they can dig up Mark Gregory...anyone remember him? He of the cheapie italian ripoff exploitation films - 1990: The Bronx Warriors, Escape 2000 (Bronx Warriors 2), the Thunder trilogy (itself a clear rip off of Stallone's Rambo), Ultimate Mission, Just a Damned Soldier, Delta Force Commando... - I mean they were mostly shit, and he couldn't act a lick, but when has that stopped anyone?

  • The 1st movie was a 6/10 at best. A version with a cast under 50 would be fine, but OAP's playing soldiers is a bit sad. But i agree big Dolph was cool....he just needs a bigger role.

  • You know, instead of some sh!tty faux-retread of "The Thing"?

    Expendables 2 with a Chick?

    by conspiracy

    With that much Testosterone, and Roids around whichever chick got the part would sport an 8" clit by the wrap party.

    RALPH MACCHIO is the most GENIUS Expendables casting idea I have heard yet.

    by GibsonUSA Returns

    Like someone already said, have him be a fast-talking politician or something. Elisabeth Shue should play his wife. And make sure he kicks someone before the movie is over.

    Al Leong for the win, Robert Z'dar for the place

    Nobody has mentioned Bolo Yeung yet?

    by DanielnocharismaCraig

    C'mon. He should be the main villain in this flick. He still kicks major butt and in great shape to boot!

    Fake South Americans

    by CuervoJones

    One thing i loved in The Expandables is that they had the classic South American villain who could not speak Spanish. That was hilarious.
