Terry Crews and Randy Couture Talk The Expendables 2
08.17.12 by Ryan
As Dolph Lundgren revealed to us earlier this week, there was only one way to go for the upcoming sequel The Expendables 2 and that's "bigger." Terry Crews and Randy Couture, reprising their roles from 2010's The Expendables, couldn't agree more.
"I think from start to finish, this movie [has] way more action," Couture told Hollywood Dailies. "You know, when I read the script, I'm like: 'How in the heck are we going to do that? I mean, it's impossible!' But we pull it off."
Outside of the returning Couture, Crews, Lundgren, Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham and Jet Li, Liam Hemsworth and Yu Nan join the crew with assistance from Chuck Norris, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis. The ending sequence pits almost the entire Expendables 2 cast against villain Jean-Claude Van Damme, and both Couture and Crews said that it wasn't lost on the cast that there were so many action stars in one room.
"You look at all these characters...you might not get this again," said Crews. "So we gotta do it right."
The reviews so far for The Expendables 2 indicate that Stallone and company have done it again. The LA Times said that all that testosterone-infused blow-'-em-up craziness turns out to be kind of a kick," while USA Today called it "crowd-pleasing fun."
For the second installment, the Expendables seek revenge after losing one of their own. Stallone wrote the script with Richard Wenk (The Mechanic), leaving the direction this time to Simon West (Con Air). The action begins today.
