So there you have it, Dwayne is interested and Sly has mentioned him as a possible candidate for Expendables 2 through his TWITTER account. Let's wait and see what transpires!! You can check out Dwayne Johnson in the upcoming action thriller FASTER hitting theaters November 24th!!
Famous action star Wesley Snipes who starred with Sylvester Stallone in Demolition Man and was courted to appear in The Expendables is officially headed off to prison. Despite countless appeals, Snipes has now been sentenced to a three year prison term for tax evasion which makes an appearance in Expendables 2 impossible. It's a shame because I for one would have enjoyed seeing Snipes have a possible career resurgance by appearing in Expendables 2.
But in some good news, Dolph Lundgren who DID star in The Expendables as Gunnar Jensen has confirmed through an interview that he has spoken with Sly about Expendables 2 and had this to say to Screen Junkies who conducted the interview:
SJ: Have you heard any talk of The Expendables 2?
DL: Well, I’ve heard plenty from Sly, various ideas. I think from what I can gather, they want to do something next summer. I don’t know if I’m in it 100% but there’s a certain risk of that I guess. I don’t know what the plot is yet but I think some of the old team are coming back and some aren’t. Some will probably get killed and some will survive and he’ll bring in some new blood I’m sure too.
