TMZ is reporting that the family of Kun Lui, the stuntman who was tragically killed on October 27, 2011 during filming of Expendables 2, is suing Millennium Films and Stunt Coordinator Chad Stahelski. It's just a terrible situation all around and hopefully it can be resolved as peacefully as possible.
The upcoming Expendables 2 Premiere in Israel that had been scheduled for August 8th has now been cancelled due to changes in Sylvester Stallone's schedule following the tragic loss of his son Sage. The event will be re-scheduled.

Arnold Schwarzenegger next film following The Tomb was originally titled TEN but now The Hollywood Reporter is saying that the film has been given the new title of BREACHER. In addition, they say that Terrence Howard (Iron Man) and Dawn Olivieri (House Of Lies) are also in talks to join the cast and that Sam Worthington (Avatar) is officially on board.
A Good Day To Die Hard director John Moore had the following to say about the next installment in the Die Hard franchise speaking with EMPIRE magazine:
Many fans of the franchise will be concerned about the idea of another sequel, but Moore - who's previously directed Max Payne and the 2006 remake of The Omen - is aware of the anxious question mark hanging over the film.
What's more, he's also keen to downplay idea that the fifth Die Hard could be a light-hearted romp - this is a Die Hard movie, pure and simple. In other words, no glib jokes then? No "How can the same shit happen to the same guy five times..." lines?
"No, because that’s preposterous! I don’t know whether it’s post-financial crash or whatever, but I don’t think people are in the mood for that bollocks anymore. People are well savvy to the cynical reheating of any product, any franchise. Any shit won’t do. The bar’s a bit higher."
But what about the fish-out-of-water element, with McClane in Moscow?
"There are a couple of great gags and a couple of great McClanisms. It’s not like he this idiot, bumbling around Moscow making ‘America won the Cold War’ jokes. It’s not Carry On Die Hard, I can assure you…"
And what about the scale of the movie? So far, each Die Hard has been bigger than the one before…
"The scope along goes from New York to Moscow. It’s very, very international. There’s a car chase through Moscow that’s taking us 78 days to shoot. So… yeah. That should answer your question!"
That's all for now guys....Thanks to Deespefd, EX2 Blog, Kicker, Jason and civciv for all their contributions!!
