Why do we feel like we’re still going to be writing about The Expendables five years from now?
We probably feel that way because it’s clear that Sylvester Stallone is going to get every ounce of mileage out of this project as possible. Now that it is officially evolving from a movie to a franchise, he’s got all types of plans.
First on the schedule is a director’s cut of Expendables, which will be released on DVD and Blu-ray in about six months. Along with the director’s cut, Stallone has reported that he’s recently finished an audio commentary, as well as a documentary companion piece entitled Inferno: The Making of The Expendables.
He’s teased us about the documentary by referencing a story about a stunt gone awry, where Sly was brought to a hospital in Brazil, where they told him surgery would be required for a spinal cord injury to his neck. Damn, Sly…why do we suddenly see flashes of Mickey Rourke’s character in The Wrestler?
Stallone is also pumped to get going on The Expendables II. Here’s what he’s saying about the project:
"I am thinking what would be the most dangerous places in the world to set the sequel?… Had dinner with Bruce Willis… I want him in Expendables II as a super villain. What do you think?"
We’ll give it some thought, and get back to you, Sly. In the meanwhile, maybe you should also start brainstorming about The Expendables III. Instead of the most dangerous place on Earth, maybe in the threequel you can set it in the most dangerous place…in OUTER SPACE!
Are U excited for more Expendables?
