Ever since The Expendables exploded into theaters last August, earning $274 million worldwide, the question has been "what will writer/director star Sylvester Stallone do for a sequel?" Weeks after the movie's release, Stallone asked his Twitter followers what they thought of bringing Bruce Willis back as a villain, but hasn't mentioned too many other details regarding the sequel's plot or cast. So far, it's looking like the some of the original cast are returning.
Jason Statham, who played Stallone's right-hand man Lee Christmas in The Expendable admitted to Collider that he's "very positive" he'll return for the sequel.
Willis? Van Damme? Seagal? Norris?
Yes I have heard about a sequel and I’d be the first to say yes to a phone call from Sly. I mean, we spoke about it as soon as the movie started to do really well and he says, you know, it would be great to do this again, and if there’s anyone who can do a good sequel it’s Sly Stallone! He’s done a fair amount. Yeah, we had a good time. It’s something I’d like to repeat.
