Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham Have Become Expendable

Sylvester Stallone - Jason Statham

Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham, will join Jet Li, as a team of mercenaries in the Nu Image/Millennium action film Expendables. The main characters are sent in to infiltrate a South American country, and overthrown its ruthless dictator to liberate the population. Their team is “expendable,” hired to do jobs that no one else can or will.

The film will be directed by Stallone, from his original screenplay, the first project in his two picture deal with the studio. The second is expected to be the next instalment of the Rambo series. (Yeah!!!)

Principal photography will begin in February in Costa Rica, and Louisiana. Avi Lerner, John Thompson, and Kevin Templeton are producing the film with executive producers Boaz Davidson, Trevor Short, and Danny Dimbort.

“Making films with Nu Image/Millennium gives me as a the director the opportunity to make the films I envision,” Stallone said. “I am happy to be partnering with them again, and am looking forward to working with Jason and Jet.”

This sounds fantastic, I’m really looking forward to a film with all three of these heavy action stars. This story also pretty much confirms what I’ve said all along that Stallone will do another Rambo film !!!

    It just doesn’t get much better than those three together in one film. They are simply kick a** action stars. All you had to do was say, Jason Statham, and I’m there. But you throw in Stallone and Jet Li? I’m there opening day.

    And I am very excited about a new Rambo film. I had my doubts about the last one, but after seeing it all my doubts about Stallone have been erased. He is still one BAMF!

    I thought Jet Li was done with acting?!?!?!

    Or was it Action Movies? Or what? I’m confused….

    Still, I’m psyched to see this trio!

  3. Jon says

    Yeah, he did say he was done. This must be one hell of a script to tempt him to come out of “retirement” so quickly. I’m not surprised he’s set to star again, but so quickly? I think that’s good news!

    I believe Jet Li, said he was done with Marshall arts films.///

    Gotta love this concept and cast!!! I can see Stallone as the l gruff leader of the group…
