"I did the first one because I felt that I owed Sly a favour. He gave me a job in 'Get Carter' when I couldn't f**king shine my shoes, you know what I'm saying? And that was that.
"The other thing around that, I had never said I was going to be in it. I think the producers announced it but nobody discussed it with me."
Interesting to hear all that. Casting for Expendables 2 has certainly been all over the place but in the end I think we have a fairly solid one. Certainly looks like the opportunity for Rourke to return for a potential Expendables 3 still exists. What do you guys think of this news?
And in an update from yesterday regarding the Sly and Van Damme news, the Bulgarian news source appears to have been mistaken as Van Damme Fan is reporting that the final fight scene won't be filmed until December!! Thanks to Frenchy for the heads up!!
"guys, talked to JC´s stunt double right now. the fight between jc and sly wasn´t filmed so far. they will film it in december."
