Chuck Norris has never won an Academy Award for acting… because he’s not acting. But there’s still time, after all, Norris is only 71! And take a look at this photo guys, not only he looks great, but it’s actually a new set-photo from the upcoming The Expendables 2 that we want to share with you!
You already know that we have an amazing cast on board for the whole thing, but, as you see on this one, Norris is having fun with Dolph Lundgren and Terry Crews. He’s probably explaining them how to do push-ups in a sit-up position…
And now, some non-Chuck-Norris but also well-known facts. Director Simon West is on board for The Expendables 2 a sequel which is scheduled to hit theaters next summer on August 17, 2012.
“They are back and this time it’s personal! After Tool, the heart and soul of the Expendables, is brutally murdered on a mission, his comrades swear to avenge him. They’re not the only ones who want blood. Tool’s beautiful young and wild daughter Fiona embarks on her own revenge mission, complicating matters when she is captured and ransomed by a ruthless dictator plotting to destroy a resistance movement. Now Barney and the Expendables must risk everything to save her and humanity.”
The Expendables 2 includes the returning cast Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, Terry Crews and Randy Couture, as well as new guys Chuck Norris, Scott Adkins and Jean-Claude Van Damme.
And, just for a record, according to the latest reports, Antonio Banderas had to turn down Stallone’s offer to join these guys, due to a scheduling conflict. “They asked me to do it, I don’t think at this point I will have the time. I am very disappointed that it didn’t work out,” Banderas said.
Yeah, well, maybe next time Antonio!
Stay tuned for more updates on The Expendables 2!
