When questioned as to what Sylvester Stallone may have planned for the sequel to the surprise summer hit The Expendables (which will probably be Lionsgate's second highest-grossing movie of all time very soon), we got a minor update. "I saw Avi Lerner this morning, who deserves all the credit for it," Iwanyk responded. "He really went on the line for the movie. He told me, 'We're doing a sequel, we're doing it right away.' I haven't talked to Sly at all about what's going to happen in the sequel. It's going to rock and you can just imagine in your head who will be in that cast in addition to the people who are there now. But I'm not sure. There's a lot of excitement and I know that Avi and Sly want to go at it as soon as possible."
"The thing about 'The Expendables' for us was that it was a movie we had at Warner Bros., and it was a dead project," he said about the background for the hit action film. "We had a lunch with Sly's agent and he said, 'Sly needs to go to work,' so we sent him and he turned it into 'The Expendables."
