It’s pretty late, it’s officially Labor Day, and I’m sitting here watching “Rescue Me” and looking up movie news. The fun never stops at Rigneyland! At any rate, while digging through the beanstalk of uselessness that is my Facebook home page, I discovered that Millennium Films had finally released the official cast list for the highly-anticipated action extravaganza “The Expendables 2″. It’s pretty awesome, especially since Chuck Norris’ involvement has been confirmed. Simon West, of course, will handle directing duties. I have absolutely no problem with this whatsoever. “The Expendables”, while thoroughly entertaining, can induce migraines. No joke.
Here’s the official plot synopsis. There be spoilers:
The Expendables are back and this time it’s personal! After Tool (Mickey Rourke), the heart and soul of the Expendables, is brutally murdered on a mission, his comrades swear to avenge him. They’re not the only ones who want blood. Tool’s beautiful young and wild daughter Fiona embarks on her own revenge mission, complicating matters when she is captured and ransomed by a ruthless dictator plotting to destroy a resistance movement. Now Barney and the Expendables must risk everything to save her and humanity.
“The Expendables”, which officially stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Jet Li, Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, and Scott Adkins. If your favorite action hero was not listed, chin up: he or she might make the surprise guest list. Assuming, of course, there is one.
“The Expendables 2″ should arrive in theaters next year.
