Somebody pinch me, I must be dreaming.
Not only has Sylvester Stallone attracted Jason Statham and Jet Li to his project, but he’s been in talks with Forest Whitaker, Dolph Lundgren, and Gandhi. Well, Ben Kingsley, but close enough.
Now there’s no telling if Sly wants Kingsley to play the villainous dictator. If so, he could flashback to his Oscar-nominated performance in Sexy Beast. But even if he’s assisting Sly’s team of mercenaries, that’ll be fun too.
The Expendables is slated to be released in 2010. Man, and we’re just starting 2009. The anticipation’s killing me.
