The Expendables Sylvester Stallone, the action genre deity who helped provide the world with characters like John Rambo is now working on an explosive project destined to blow our minds - before a single frame is even filmed. His new film, The Expendables, about mercenaries who aim to overthrow a dictator in South America, is comprised of a dream team of ass-kickers. Using names important to both the past and present, it stars Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, and not to mention Stallone himself.
Recently added to the cast list is Mickey Rourke, who is metaphorically pile-driving audience members one by one with his performance in The Wrestler.
With action greats from different eras, it seems like this film is only a Steven Seagal or Arnold Schwarzenegger short of being an instant classic.
Jack The Giant Killer -- a new film project is growing at New Line.
Called Jack The Giant Killer, it’s a mature take on the famous story of “Jack and the Beanstalk”. In this version, a truce between giants and humans is shattered when a princess is kidnapped. Jack, a young farmer, is sent on a journey into the land of the giants to save her from the gargantuan monsters.
D.J Caruso, the director of Eagle Eye and Disturbia, is ready to direct, with David Dobkin and Neal Moritz set is produce. And maybe, just maybe, the giant star Shia LaBeouf will make this his third film with director Caruso.
...I'm convinced that the only kind of greatness The Expendables won't be able to offer is another theme song sung by Frank Stallone (a la First Blood: Part II).
Witness such glory here:
