EXCLUSIVE: Mickey Rourke is negotiating to star with Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken in Seven Psychopaths, the next film by In Bruges writer/director Martin McDonagh. That means Rourke will not be reprising his role in the Simon West-directed The Expendables 2. Rourke did the first film as a favor to director Sylvester Stallone, but it doesn’t sound like there was a big financial incentive to return for a reprise on the surprise hit.
In other news, this Bulgarian source is claiming that Vin Diesel has joined Expendables 2 in the role of Timmons. Timmons is supposed to be a key character in the film but beyond that not much is known about him. My source in Bulgaria who revealed the character of Timmons to me said that Dwayne Johnson wouldn't fit the role so I'm left to wonder, how does Vin Diesel possibly fit it? This one is far from fact guys so stay tuned and I'll see if I can find out more.
Lastly, Mike has sent me the link to his fan made Expendables 2 Teaser Trailer Preview, you can check it out below!!
