We have quite a few Skin Trade related photos to share with you all today,
This is our favorite one of the bunch:
The ExpendaBelles will be produced by Sylvester Stallone and Kevin King. Executive producers are Heidi Jo Markel, Julie Kroll, Avi Lerner, Trevor Short, Boaz Davidson, John Thompson and Mark Gill. CAA and Mosaic rep Luketic.
"The Expendables universe has a new team. An elite group of highly trained female mercenaries are brought together for a covert hostage rescue mission. Once they are behind enemy lines, the women discover that they will also need to topple an evil dictator bent on world domination. It becomes clear there there is no such thing as the right man for the job. The Expendabelles is the ultimate story of female empowerment and kick-ass teamwork."
(Special note from Trevor: Sigourney Weaver should be the leader of this, otherwise the movie should not happen)
"German director Dennis Gansel (The Fourth State, The Wave, Before the Fall) is in talks to direct a sequel to The Mechanic, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Jason Statham will reprise the role of Arthur Bishop, an elite assassin with a strict code and unique talent for cleanly eliminating targets. The first film was directed by Simon West and co-starred Ben Foster, though it's unclear if Foster will return.
The trade says that Nu Image is shopping the project to buyers at the European Film Market in Berlin.
The Mechanic, which was made for about $40 million, earned $51 million at the worldwide box office."
"You only had Alfred Molina and Jean-Claude Van Damme for a few days, right?
They’re very strong actors, that’s why they’re who they are, and we didn’t have them for a long time so we had to really take advantage of that. But everybody was ready to go, the whole creative machine from the crew to the VP to the actors around the Director worked really well in this movie. We only had Alfred Molina for three days, yet he’s one of the major characters and he’s all over the movie.
How was your first encounter with Van Damme?
I was a huge fan of Van Damme when I grew up and watched all of his movies and my father was also a big fan, big time fan so it was exciting. And it was funny cause it’s the very first scene that we did together and it was a fight scene, and I was like “Hello Mr. Van Damme” and then we get into a fight and he’s like this martial arts god, although he’s not doing martial arts in our movie so it was very interesting.
My father passed away like a year and a half ago and I remember telling him in the hospital that everything was going to be fine because Van Damme was on board and we were going to make the movie. I’m over here and far away from the family and he was worried about my future so that was the last thing I talked to him about, I said “Everything is alright, Van Damme is on board!” and he was very excited about that. It was actually a very moving moment.
The second day we were working together he comes to Josh Henderson -who plays Boyd- and I, and says: “I’m very excited to work with you because you guys are real actors”. And we look at each other and we go “But you’re a movie star!”.
So that day I walked to him and I told him “I’m very happy that you are here, because it’s the last thing I said to my father” and he was very excited that we were going to work together, and we had this little moment when we got moved and we hugged, it was really cute."
