Whenever a movie debuts at number one over the box office weekend, sequel talk immediately rears its ugly head. Sylvester Stallone’s latest flick, The Expendables crushed the competition last weekend by earning $35 million, which is quite a feat considering the the acting was so-so and the plot was non-existent. But let’s be serious, who was in it for those reasons? People saw the movie because they wanted to watch sh*t get blown up and that’s exactly what happened. Now there are rumors that Stallone might be up for another round with the cast, is The Expendables Part 2 in the works?
In a recent interview, Stallone revealed that he has an idea of where he wants The Expendables story to go if he decides to shoot a sequel.
It’s 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.
Do you know what that sounds like to us? It sounds like he wants to switch out certain stars with some who were unable to appear in the original. We’re thinking Kurt Russell, Jean Claude Van Damme, Steven Seagal (if he cooperates), Chuck Norris, and maybe Michael Jai White. It would be awesome if Blade aka Wesley Snipes could be a part of it too but he has his hands tied at the moment.
Do you think there should be an Expendables sequel? Who would you like to see appear in the film?
