The Expendables Aims to Come Back -- But with Stalllone in a Different Guise

LA Times says:

Fans of 'The Expendables" have been clamoring for a sequel since the final round of alter kocker gunfire went off last summer.

Now it looks like they'll get their wish-- but without Sylvester Stallone behind the camera.

The follow-up movie is a priority at producer Millennium Films, where it's being developed by Stallone, the creative force behind the original. But Stallone, who both starred in and directed the 2010 summer hit, isn't, at the moment, planning on helming the new movie. Instead, he's been meeting with directors to tackle the sequel, said a person who was briefed on the project but was not authorized to speak about it publicly.

I freakin loved the Expendables. It was easily the best action movie I've seen in a long long time. I'll be there for opening night when this hits.

I felt the opposite. It was my most anticipated movie of the entire year. I was entirely underwhelmed. It was just mediocre all around to me.

They have this amazing cast and the best characters get 2 minutes screen time. I'll watch a sequel but I'm not expecting anything special.

I don't feel it was underwhelming, but I do agree that they didn't use the characters properly. There was so much potential with the movie with the cast they had, yet it didn't feel properly utilized. Everyone deserved their spotlight.

Jet Li vs. Dolph, good but not very well choreographed.

Stallone vs. Austin, good but should have been between Austin and Couture IMHO.

Li and Statham vs. Daniels didn't make much sense to me and had no build up to suggest that Daniels was such a bad arse. Was very disappointed with how they used Daniels.

As for the second movie, Scott Adkins and Michael Jai White need to be in it, but on the same side. Personally, Scott Adkins is this centuries Van Damme.

Oh god, one was enough for me. All it is, is sensless action with famous stars tagged on it. I guess they can milk as long as possible, but they have to be willing to accept the fact that these stars are done for afterwards.

Im just waiting for someone else to come along and do the same thing with differnt action stars. The Rock, Vin Diesel, and so on. This movie will probably do better since these are the stars of the younger generation.

Isn't that the next Fast & Furious movie?
