Expendables 2 Gets Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme
Last summer The Expendables boosted the careers of action stars of yesteryear like Sylvester Stallone and Dolph Lundgren. With The Expendables 2 scheduled for a release in August 2012, the cast is getting packed with more former stars. Today, there’s confirmation that Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme will also star in the sequel.
Stallone has promised that there will be a showdown between him and Van Damme. Norris also signed on, but his part is unknown at this point. This will be Norris’ first film since 2005’s The Cutter.
Stallone has also stated that he is hoping to reunite the stars of Face/Off in his sequel, by announcing he’s pursuing Nicolas Cage and John Travolta for his film. However, the only thing apparently stopping Cage and Travolta from joining is scheduling conflicts.
