The Expendables 2 Gets a Release Date
Posted 04.01.11 by Ryan
The Expendables 2 may not have a director or a confirmed cast, but it does have a release date.
ComingSoon reports that Lionsgate has given the sequel to last year's $274 million hit a August 17, 2012, release date, obviously confident that Sylvester Stallone will deliver again. The actor co-wrote and directed The Expendables, but a report revealed last month that Stallone was developing the sequel with screenwriters Ken Kaufman (Space Cowboys) and David Agosto, while meeting with directors.
Last August, Stallone hinted that his idea for The Expendables 2 was "quite radical" and that he wanted Bruce Willis to play a "supervillain," an idea that Willis is apparently not against since he admitted in July that he would love to be a part" of the sequel. Jason Statham has also admitted that he would like to return.
With the release date set, the sequel has a year and a half to figure everything out.
