Sylvester Stallone is set to direct and star in The Expendables for Nu Image/Millennium Films. Stallone, who also penned the script, will be joined onscreen by Jason Statham, while Jet Li is in final negotiations to join the actioner. The film follows a team of mercenaries on a mission to overthrow a South American dictator. Filming starts in February in Costa Rica and Louisiana. Let’s hope for a Dirty Dozen style adventure!
