Oh, sweet lord. It looks like The Expendables 2 is set to launch the highest combination of Viagra and steroids on movies screens, well, ever—Deadline reports that Sylvester Stallone-starring sequel to the 2010 surprise hit is finally going to give in to every action fanboy wishlist that was crafted anytime between 1984 and 1989: the film will co-star Arnold Schwarzenegger. And Bruce Willis. And Chuck Norris. And Jean-Claude Van Damme.
Also rumored to appear is—sigh—John Travolta (hey, they can’t all be winners).
The AV Club also reports that many familiar faces will be flexing their collectively performance-enhanced physiques on screen:
“Along with the returning Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, and Jet Li—as well as the more modern additions Jason Statham, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Randy Couture, and Terry Crews—Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, and John Travolta are also reportedly on board… And of course, there’s still plenty of time for more rumor-mongering over who might also find their way into the nostalgia kickline, a sprawling list that includes everyone from Mr. T and Hulk Hogan to Vin Diesel and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, from Lorenzo Lamas and Jeff Speakman to Carl Weathers and Charlie Sheen.”
Seriously—if a film is released next year starring Sly Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Mr. T, Hulk Hogan, and Lorenzo freakin’ Lamas, it will officially be the most manly moment in history.
