My source also informed me that Jean-Claude Van Damme is also on board and that Chuck Norris and John Travolta are NOT on board. Christian Slater will be in Bulgaria next week to begin filming a new movie and my source said he will try and get in contact with him to confirm whether or not he will be in Expendables 2. But my thinking is if Christian Slater is already going to be in Bulgaria for another movie anyway and he already has the connection with Sly as they just finished doing Bullet In The Head together, I'd say chances are looking very strong that Slater may have at least a small role in Expendables 2.
At the present time though, I have nothing to back all of this up. My source says his article is being published today in Bulgaria and I'm working on getting an online link for you guys to check out. So as always, don't take any of this as fact just yet but I am working on getting confirmation for you guys. So what do you think about all of this?
There won't be any online link to the article sadly as the article was published in a local newspaper that isn't featured online. I can tell you though that my source is one of the top 'go to' people in Sofia for the entertainment business and you can take him at his word. With the way things are going on this film I'm not going to say 100% this will happen but I think this is as close as were going to get to confirmation until an official source (Variety, EW etc.) picks it up and publishes.
