Okay so I have a lot to share with you guys in this article. All this information comes from my contact Svetlio in Sofia, Bulgaria who writes for the entertainment section of a local newspaper, he has established many contacts within the movie industry through his time as an entertainment journalist. Svetlio received the majority of this information through his contacts at Nu Boyana Studios where Expendables 2
is filming and through his contacts at Nu Image. As an exciting side note, Svetlio may be getting a small role in the film as an extra which would be an amazing opportunity and experience for him as well as allow us even more exclusive coverage from the set!!
So let's get started here, to start with I have pictures of the newspaper article that featured the news that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis will be on board for Expendables 2
, Arnold filming for one week and Bruce possibly up to two weeks. The article is written in Bulgarian. Here are those photos:
Next up, I am told Mickey Rourke WILL RETURN to play Tool in the sequel and all those fretting over the departure of Jet Li may have a sigh of relief provided to you. Apparently Jet Li WILL RETURN for Expendables 2
but WILL NOT be filming any scenes in Bulgaria. His only scenes will take place during the filming in China.
We have also been provided with some news on the villains. Jean-Claude Van Damme's character will reportedly have his own gang or unit of mercenaries and his character's body will be completely covered in tattoos. The fact that he will have his own unit of mercenaries is clearly a carry over from the earlier released plot summary
that Sylvester Stallone quickly shot down as inaccurate. In that plot description the main villain, playfully named Vilain had his own unit of mercenaries that competed with The Expendables. Van Damme presumably has the role of Vilain as we've all assumed by I'm not sure if that character name is still accurate.
Lastly, Scott Adkins (Undisputed 3, Assassination Games) has reportedly been offered a role in Expendables 2
that would seem him play a member of Van Damme's mercenary unit. Adkins has appeared with Van Damme recently in Assasination Games and Universal Soldier: A New Dimension which also features Expendables cast member Dolph Lundgren.
So that's all I have for now guys, pretty much all of that news has nothing backing it up other then the word of my source. So I'll leave it up to you guys just how much you want to believe. With filming beginning either this month or next we should know fairly soon just how accurate it all is. In my opinion, Svetlio has been a stand up guy since I first started talking with him and I think his word can be trusted on all this. But like I said, you guys decide amongst yourselves and we shall all know everything very soon. What do you guys think about all this potential news?
