Simon West will direct a bunch of action all-stars in The Expendables 2
Posted by: Zack Bruce
When it comes to directing action flicks, I’d say Simon West has a decent background. His very first job was helming CON AIR which included an all-star cast, now it looks like he will be taking on another.
West has been chosen to direct THE EXPENDABLES 2. The sequel is expected to welcome back Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, Terry Crews and Jet Li. There will be some newcomers as well, but as far as which action star will get a part, that is still up in the air. I’m still hoping that Van Damme can be squeezed in, if he wants to do it of course. Production on the film will begin this Summer.
The plot of the new film does hold a spoiler, so if you don’t want to know what your in for stop reading now.
Synopsis: The Expendables are back and this time it’s personal! After Tool (Mickey Rourke), the heart and soul of the Expendables, is brutally murdered on a mission, his comrades swear to avenge him. They’re not the only ones who want blood. Tool’s beautiful young and wild daughter Fiona embarks on her own revenge mission, complicating matters when she is captured and ransomed by a ruthless dictator plotting to destroy a resistance movement. Now Barney and the Expendables must risk everything to save her and humanity.
