The Expendables Sequel Will be Hiring New Badasses

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?

    Hogan only if he’s in a Mickey Rourke type part, the man can barely move let alone do action. Jesse is looking ragged, and Ralph Moeller would rock just to have another Conan in it. Segal would work as a villain.

    I think that Van Damme should have done it but sometimes he just do what he wants so I would like to see Van Damme In The Expendables sequel and if he gets beaten in the film you just gotta deal with it thats movie business.
    Thank You.

    It would have too have The Rock, Wesley Snipes (god knows he needs the pay check) Vin Diesel, JCVD, Mark Dacosas, and Cynthia Rothock or Michelle Yeoh.
    I gotta say Chuck Norris with Segal and Chow Yun Fat as his henchmen would be great.
    Kurt Russell gets the scene stealing cameo.

  • Spider

    Jean-Claude Van Damme, Michael Dudikoff, Ralph Moeller, Scott Adkins, Mathias Hues, Steven Seagal, Ray Park, Miles O’Keeffe, Ken Wahl. A few of these guys could be brought on for the price of say, The Rock!
