We are very happy to announce that our man Scott has been cast as "Hector" in the eagerly anticipated Expendables sequel which also stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Arnold Schwarzennegger, JCVD, Dolph Lundgren and Bruce Willis just to name a few. Adkins will be 2nd in command to Jean Claude Van Damme's Jean Vilain, leader of an opposing team of mercenaries. Here's what Scott can tell us.
"It's an honour and a privilege to join the ranks of what can only be described as the biggest grouping of action stars in any film, ever! So many of these guys have been such an inspiration to me and so many others throughout their career. I'm excited to be reunited with my good friend Jean Claude Van Damme and I can't wait to take on Stallone and his Expendables. I may need some help though, so I'm bringing the spirit of Boyka along for the ride."
So we get another confirmation on Scott Adkins's characters name, a confirmation on Van Damme's character and further evidence that they will be facing off with The Expendables!! So what do you guys think of Van Damme's name Jean Vilain now that we know that's his name, I'm okay with it, I'm sure it will grow on me in time.
It's also being reported that John Travolta's next movie Gotti has been postponed due to a lack of funds. It was reported Travolta's participation in Expendables 2 was contingent on scheduling, the delay of Gotti could free him up to appear in Expendables 2 now!! Stay tuned for more!!
Thanks To Kicker and Elrey For The Heads Up!!
