Sylvester Stallone, have decided to pass the torch the writing and directing job to someone else for the sequel to, “The Expendables”, movie. The script have already been written and handed in. The script was written by, David Agosto and Ken Kaufman.
A director haven’t been hired yet, however, Stallone himself have been meeting with a list of directors and found one that could get the job, but was not authorized to speak about that director’s name publicly.
More on the story, here.
This is actually a good idea. The first, “Expendables” movie was pretty good, but it wasn’t Stallone’s best action movie. The story and the acting wasn’t that great, but the action scenes were of course, a blast to watch. The first “Expendables” movie needed a lot of improvements. Maybe Sly wants the next movie as an opportunity for it to be a much better film than the first.
Hopefully, the next film will give Bruce and Arnold a longer role. Probably will. Hopefully, Jean Claude Van Damme and Kurt Russell will star in the next one as well.
Who will take over Sly’s directing job? I would like Christopher Nolan to, but he’ll be too busy with the next “Superman” and “Batman” flicks for the next several years.
Other good choices would be: Kathryn Bigelow, Clint Eastwood, Robert Rodriguez, or he could re-team with Renny Harlin.
