God bless interviews. Without them, we wouldn’t have interviewees. And without interviewees, we wouldn’t have leaked information regarding upcoming motion pictures. Now, I haven’t heard solid information regarding John Travolta and Chuck Norris’ involvement in “The Expendables 2″, but according to NU Boyana studios CEO David Varod, they’re very much a part of the project. NU Boyana, by the way, is based in Bulgaria, where the flick is set to be filmed.
When asked if he could confirm participants, Mr. Varod stated the following:
Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, John Travolta, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke…who else? Of course, Bruce Willis. The director is Simon West, who is also a name. He is already here and has started working on the film. I believe the sequel will be better than the first movie.
Is any of this true? Did the CEO speak before deals have been made? Who knows! After all, he did forget to mention poor Jet Li. But it’s fun to sit around and speculate, isn’t it? I’m sure some sort of official statement will soon shortly.
