Tonight the channel EPIX is premiering The Expendables: The Extended Cut which promises more scenes never before seen in the theatrical release. Sylvester Stallone will be 'Presenting' it. You can check out the official site for the event HERE and the preview for it below courtesy of VanDammeFanz!!!
TheArnoldFans via ShowBizSpy is reporting that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone are sticking together through Arnold's difficult time as he works through his issues with his family. I'd expect to hear nothing less, Sly and Arnold have been friends for years and despite Arnold's troubles, I fully expected Sly to support him as a friend. We all know what Arnold did was extremely wrong but I respect that he is finally owning up to what he's done and trying to work through it. A source close to Sly had the following to say:
"Sly and Arnie have been friends for a long time, Arnold has made mistakes and he's hurting but he has a good network of people like Sly helping him through it and supporting him in rebuilding his life. Sly has even talked about a project he and Arnold may work on together once he's ready. It's a movie that may actually draw on some of what Arnold is going through and the mistakes he's made."
Sly and Arnold together on screen? I know we are all there be it an action, drama or comedy. Here's hoping it's at least an action drama :)!!
Ain't It Cool News is reporting it and Sylvester Stallone and Director Walter Hill don't want it but apparently Warner Bros, the studio behind the upcoming action thriller Headshot, want Thomas Jane replaced as the co-male lead in order to get someone more 'ethnic' in the role. What a load of crap! Thomas Jane will be awesome kicking ass alongside Sly and there is absolutely NO WAY he should be replaced. I have absolutely nothing against any ethnicity, this is all about supporting the guy who already has the role and deserves to have the role. Wake Up Warner Bros!! Here's hoping Sly, Walter and Thomas come out on top on this one. What do you guys think?
I missed this, but back on May 23rd the site Gordon And The Whale released an EXTENDED description of the plot for Expendables 2 which Sylvester Stallone told StalloneZone was FAKE. While the plot may have changed it is possible elements of the below plot may still be in the official plot when its released. For pure curiosity sake why not check out the plot below? We shall wait and see what actually comes to pass. A special thanks to Gordon And The Whale for providing it!!
Stallone, Statham, Rourke, Lundgren, Couture and Crews return as hard-edged but noble mercenaries in the second installment of Sylvester Stallone's old-school action thriller, The Expendables.
As payback for taking out the corrupt CIA agent Monroe (Eric Roberts) in the first Expendables, cagey Agent Church (Bruce Willis) forces the Expendables to do an "easy mission": retrieve a missing CIA package from Gazak, a civil war torn country in Easter Europe.
The easy mission turns deadly when the Expendables are ambushed by a team of ruthless rival mercs, the Sangunaires, competing to get the same package. Tool (Mickey Rourke), the heart and souleof the Expendables, is brutally murdered by Vilain, the leader of the bloodthirsty guns for hire. Still, the Expendables manage to pull of the mission and return with the CIA package, but it's a hollow victory.
As their thoughts turn from grief to revenge, Tool's beautiful young daughter Fiona shows up. Cut from the same stone as her dad, she wants to join the Expendables when they hunt down Vilain and his men. Barney (Stallone) promises her the Expendables will avenge Tool's death, but will not risk putting his best friend's daughter in harm's way.
Fiona, who is young and wile, embarks on her own revenge mission, complicating matters for Barney when she is captured and ransomed by VIlain. Now Barney and the expendables must risk everything to save her, kidnapping CIA Agent Church and pulling off a daring heist of the CIA package they were hired to bring back.
When Agent Church reveals why the CIA package is so valuable to Vilain, the stakes go up even higher. Inside the package are canisters of radioactive cesium which Vilain has been tasked with releasing on the people's uprising that threatens the thirty year rule of Gazak's vicious dictator, President Dogot.
The Expendables, along with Agent Church, are now faced with an impossible mission: rescue Fiona, foil a dictator's vicious plot to kill scores of innocent people, and avenge the death of one of their own.
