Donnie Yen

As filming draws to a close on Sly’s forthcoming thriller Bullet to the Head, rumors surrounding the casting of other Stallone projects have been flying all over the place online. Dark Horizons have a story about Donnie Yen being sought for The Expendables 2. Moviehole are touting Taylor Lautner and Christian Slater among others for the film. UK film magazine Total Film are going with John Travolta and Chuck Norris as the latest names to join the cast of the action sequel.

Stallone and Travolta

With other stories suggesting that production of The Expendables 2 could be set for China, and even salary details being bandied about online, it’s easy for fans and pundits alike to be lost in the overwhelming mix of hype and news surrounding these projects. Exciting times for Stallone fans to be sure, but keep checking back to the official website, where we will keep you updated and reliably informed.

    Bonjour sly donne moi une chance de pouvoir faire parti du cinéma hollywoodien je ne suis personne et je ne parle même pas l anglais j ai fait quelque petite figuration mais le rêve américain c est en Amérique voilà un défit merci Dago

    Bring back Arnold and Bruce in a bigger role. Also Van Damme,Segal, Norris in a cameo role. Lautner has no business there. Slater is not an action star. Nicolas Cage just wouldn’t fit in. Travolta could do good for an bad guy. And how about Eastwood making one last role as the gristled ex expendable?

  4. Robert Lacey says:

    I would love to Chuck Norris in the role of a mercenary martial arts trainer for Sly and his team. Chuck can still kick it. Loved the first Expendables and will not miss Jet Li in sequel now that I see who else is coming to the party. This will be an epic of Biblical proportion.

    Sly!!! Greetings from Poland! Your idea to make “The Expandebles” and bringing so many well known heros of action movies i awesome!!!!!!!!!

  6. bella rose says:

    steven seagal is really good. action all the way…

  7. Ron van Hall says:

    Jeff Speakman!!!!!! The Perfect Weapon deserves a role in this movie…there’s no doubt about this man’s fighting abilities and he should have some real kick-ass action scenes in this one!!!!!

  8. john says:

    How about segal, norris, van damme, and speakman, Im sorry but slater is not a action star lol, I could see the rock in the movie, Throw in brock lesner, or someone too

  9. Alex says:

    Some of those names are hilarious, Sly is the man and he’ll no doubt come up with an even better cast this time. Get Wesley Snipes back and any of the cast from Copland except Garafalo. Also Gary Busey would be awesome for something.

  10. JEFF SPEAKMAN (The Perfect Weapon, Street Knight, The Expert, Deadly Takeover, Scorpio One, Memorial Day, Running Red etc…) would be a excellent choice for the sequel!!!!

    • Brandon says:

      Dude! Thats a bad ass casting idea. I havn’t seen Speakman in anything for a long while. I loved The Perfect Weapon, truely a 90′s action classic.

  11. Brandon says:

    Please NOOOOOO Lautner, he has no bussiness staring in this movie, thats awefull casting. Cage I can live with, even slater and lambert, but no Lautner. Why not go for the gold and get weathers, duke, diesel, the rock, al leong, seagal, eastwood cameo, jessie ventura, hulk hogan, brian bosworth, hendrickson, all of those guys would be more that worthy.

    Here Are My Honest Opinion(s)/Thought(s) on All This:

    Nicolas Cage – Oh HELL YES! (Please Don’t Try To Condemn Me, But I Actually Truly Love The Idea. Hell, I’ve Actually Have Even Suggested Nicolas Cage For “The Expendables 2″ Multiple Times on Other Sites).

    Christian Slater – Oh HELL YES!

    Christopher Lambert – Oh HELL YES!

    Taylor Lautner – Oh HELL NO!(I Honestly Don’t Care For Him/I Don’t Like Him Very Much Right At This Moment But He’s Still Young Enough To Where He Might Just Actually Surprise Me In The Future And I’ll Definitely Give Him A Chance, Why Not?!?!)

    Overall, Honestly I Have No Problem With Cage, Slater, & Lambert Possibly Being In It Whatsoever! Although, I Probably Never Would Have Thought of Slater & Lambert Before, I Personally Think That They Are Both Awesome And I Can Definitely Get Behind Them Possibly Being In This.

    But No Matter Who’s In “The Expendables 2″ (Even If Taylor Lautner Is Indeed In It) Nonetheless, I Will 100% Truly, Absolutely, And Definitely Will See It on It’s Very Opening Day/Night In Theaters on Friday August 17, 2012 No…..Matter…..What! The First Film Is My #1 Very Most All-Time Favorite Action Film And It’s One of My Very Most All-Time Favorite Films (Seriously, No Joke Whatsoever!)

    “The Expendables 2″ = My #1 Very Most Anticipated “FILM” of The Entire 2012!!!!!!!!!!
