A collection of macho heavyweights joining together for a mission? Yeah McTiernan did that too, it starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and kicked alien ass, it was a little film called Predator. McTiernan's career has its hits (Die Hard, Predator, The Hunt For Red October) and misses (The 13th Warrior, Rollerball) and I know he's recently had his troubles with the F.B.I but he is a proven veteran of action looking for a comeback and I think Expendables 2 could be his break.
McTiernan has Directed Bruce Willis in Die Hard, Arnold Schwarzenegger in Predator and Sean Connery in The Hunt For Red October just to name a few. Big names want to work with him and he delivers quality action in his films. And with Bruce and Arnold you already have your Expendables connection.
He wasn't in my poll initially but he has since been added. If you agree with me that John McTiernan would be the perfect choice for Expendables 2 cast your vote in my poll below!! You can read more about John McTiernan and his career at IMDB!!
