Shooting on the film begins March 28 in Brazil and moves to New Orleans for two months. Stallone’s publicist said that Schwarzenegger will shoot his scene in Los Angeles if all goes to plan. Schwarzenegger has done just three cameos for friends since becoming Governor of California in 2003, including The Rundown and Around the World in 80 Days.
It has been reported that Sylvester Stallone is trying to lure Governor Schwarzenegger back to the big screen for a cameo during The Expendables. The 61-year-old actor-turned-politician would make a rare big screen appearance in the film about a group of mercenaries trying to overthow a South American dictator. It also stars Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Eric Roberts and Mickey Rourke.
