Expendables Premiere, a web site whose sole function is to cover anything Expendables related, has received much information these last few days about the sequel currently filming in Sofia, Bulgaria. Now the information they’ve come to have is direct from Nu Boyana Studios where the sequel is being shot, and from Nu Image.
First off, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s shooting schedule for the sequel will be for a single week, while Bruce Willis will have a two-week shoot. While news started to surface that Donnie Yen may be Jet Li’s replacement in The Expendables 2, it looks like Li is in fact in the sequel, though he will be filming his scenes once the production moves to China.
Mickey Rourke is also back as Tool.
As for the villains, look for Jean-Claude Van Damme’s character to lead his own outfit of mercenaries, of which Scott Adkins (Undisputed III) will be a member, if he takes the offer. Both Van Damme and Adkins recently worked together on Assassination Games and Universal Solider: A New Dimension, where Adkins also worked with one of The Expendables, Dolph Lundgren.
The site has also confirmed the cast list as it is currently:
Chuck Norris (as Bill Paxton would say, “Game over, man! Game over!”)
Jean-Claude Van Damme
