The Expendables Sequel Will be Hiring New Badasses

20 Comments

With $35 million in the bank in is first weekend, it’s no surprise that the idea of an “Expendables” sequel is looking more and more likely. Not only has the film performed up to industry expectations in the States (on an estimated $80 million budget), but the film still has the overseas markets to invade very soon. As even the dumbest dummyhead knows, Hollywood action movies with big-name action stars almost always performs better overseas than they do at home, and given the wide-ranging cast of “The Expendables” (including major Asian draw Jet Li in third billing), the future looks pretty bright for the musclebound film.

So what’s next? Duh. Stallone is already talking about ideas for a sequel, specifically adding to the cast:

[The sequel is] plotted out in my mind’s eye. I believe this group has to continue to evolve; it just can’t become the same people. So how do you get new people introduced into the group, and how do you have some of the other people leaving? Those are the challenges.

So it looks like Stallone doesn’t figure to sit still and just carry on with a second “Expendables” movie with the same cast. That said, who do you think should join in on the mayhem in a sequel?

Remember, Jean-Claude Van Damme famously turned a role down, so it’s unlikely Stallone would add him after getting slapped down once already.

So who’s left? Seagal? Jackie Chan? Chris — gasp — Tucker?

    How about Vin and The Rock. Also Arnold to have a bigger role. With Westly if he can get out of legal problems. I would like to see Michael Jay White or Michael Clark Duncan. John Cena, Hulk Hogan, Jakie Chan. Paul Walker(he can do it). Girls, thats right i said it, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Garner, Lucy Lu. Bruce Willis to have a bigger role. Mr. T, Chuck Norris,Steven Segal. That would be awsome.

    Vin, Rock, Michael Jai White, Donnie Yen (I want a Yen vs Li fight). We need some eye candy so, either Michelle Yeoh, Maggie Q, or Lucy Liu, and Jessica Biel. Let’s get Cary tagawa (Shang Tsung) as the villain (he’s always good), JCVD as the right hand man, Michale Clark Duncan as the heavy muscle (Crews vs Duncan=awesome), and Chuck Norris just for the hell of bit.

    Snipes and Russell. Good call. Very good call.
    I’d also say Mark Dascascos is underated and would fit in good.
