Thought: Steven Seagal for “The Expendables” sequel???

When the “Expendables” film franchise is being discussed in movie forums and blogs, Steven Seagal’s name is always brought up. A lot of fans of these movies, want Seagal to join the cast.

I might of posted about this before a long time ago but I think I’ll post it again. I agree it would be cool as hell if Seagal would join the Expendables cast, but it’s NEVER going to happen anytime soon. Why?

Because Avi Lerner and Seagal don’t get along. They hate each other, I think. They had a fallen out over some movie deal a few years back. Do your research and google it yourself. Seagal vowed to never work with Lerner again. “The Expendables” franchise is being produced by Millennium studios which is owned/founded by, Lerner. If the “Expendables” was being made through a different movie company, then yes, I’m sure Seagal would be on board then, but as long as Avi Lerner is working with them, no chance.

Sly even tried to get Seagal for the first movie but he failed. Seagal must patch things up and bury the hatchet with Lerner, if they ever want to work together again, but I don’t see it happening anytime soon. Their feud is pretty heated and not very nice.

It is interesting how Seagal’s name keeps coming up when it comes to, “The Expendables”. I’m sure he respects Sly as an actor, Seagal has no bad blood against Sly at all, it’s Avi Lerner he doesn’t like. I’m sure Seagal wants to be a part of these movies, but he can’t.

I like Steven Seagal movies, the earlier ones. He was a good action hero back in the day.

BREAKING NEWS: Simon West is replacement for “The Expendables 2” director!!!!

Several months ago, Sly announced the shocking news that he will not be directing “The Expendables” sequel. He wanted to give a different director an opportunity to make it a better film. A search for a replacement has been a long one, but Millennium Films have finally found their guy!

Millennium announced, Simon West, (director of such movies as “The Mechanic” remake, “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, “Con Air”, etc.) will take over Sly Stallone’s job as director.

Yes, Sly himself is returning to star the leading role as Barney Ross, of course. Deadline also confirmed the cast from the first movie is also returning. Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, Jason Statham, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, and Jet Li are all set to return. I’m pretty sure Arnold and Bruce will return too. Hopefully a LONGER role for Arnold too, not just a cameo.

Deadline, reports.

Simon’s a good film maker. I liked, “Con Air” and “Tomb Raider”. I haven’t seen, “The Mechanic”, remake yet, but I will rent it from Netflix soon.

I’m pretty sure Sly and the gang will add more iconic tough guys to the cast. Hopefully they get Jean Claude Van Damme and Kurt Russell. Dwayne Johnson too. They would probably get more UFC stars as well.

I loved the first “Expendables” movie but it had some problems. Hopefully the next one will have more of Jet Li fighting, ’cause Jet Li only had like one or two action scenes in the first one.
