“Back in action for The Expendables 2! I’m having a fantastic time on set with Bruce and Sly in Bulgaria”Last month it was confirmed that Schwarzenegger and Willis would be returning in expanded “substantial” roles. Serving as a sequel to 2010’s The Expendables, the forthcoming movie is directed by Simon West and written by David Agosto as well as Ken Kaufman. The returning cast will feature Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mickey Rourke, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, Terry Crews and Randy Couture. Millennium Films recently confirmed three new additions to the star-studded cast in the form of Chuck Norris, Scott Adkins and Jean-Claude Van Damme. The action sequel is following the surprise and phenomenal success of the first film in the summer of 2010. That first flick sat on top of the box office charts for an unprecedented three straight weeks in the busy summer movie season. The Expendables 2 opens in cinemas August 2012.
