Film of 2010 confirmed

Back in 2007 when I posted at Gamespot on The Virtual Underground board I had an idea:

"On another note I have a vision of putting Steven Segal, Dolph Lundgren, Van Damme and Stallone in one film - only this time have it win 6 Oscars and best film at Cannes. Actually it's all working out nicely in my head....Schwarzenegger should be in it too"

After another GS user Tequila-Zaire came up with the title "Hard Death" I came up with this image:



Now it seems a film much like it IS indeed being made. You may have heard of this already, but for those that don't know Silvester Stallone is directing a movie. And not just any movie this is going to be something special. It's called The Expendables and the cast contains 3 out of the 5 I depicted plus a larger, star-studded cast of the B-list. This is the greatest action star ensemble ever.

The Plot



The Expendibles have been hired to overthrow a dictator in South America. That's all you need to know.

The Cast



Silvester Stallone (Rambo, Rocky), Arnold Schwarzenegger (Terminator, Conan)


Dolph Lundgren (Masters of the Universe, Universal Soldier), Jet Li (Once Upon a Time in China, Lethal Weapon 4)


Danny Trejo (Desperado, Con Air), Jason Statham (The Transporter, Crank)


Stone Cold Steve Austin (The Condemned, ...WWE..), Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight, Dead or Alive)


Micky Rourke (Sin City, The Wrestler), Terry Crews (Terminator: Salvation, Balls of Fury)


Randy Couture (the only five-time champion in UFC history), Rumour: Bruce Willis (Die Hard, Pulp Fiction)


With screen names like Lee Christmas, Tool, Gunnar Jensen (Lundgren), The Brit and Hale Caesar we know exactly what kind of film we are dealing with. Something very self-aware and I don't see how it could possibly fail.

People that turned down roles or were unavailable include Kurt Russel, Jean Claude Van-Damme, Forest Whitaker and our beloved 50 Cent.

Filming started in March and we should see an early 2010 release. Click here for set photos.


Stallone's hat reads "Live Simply"... Statham's Badge reads "Global Wildlife Conservancy". This could be the greatest film of all time.

Arnold stands behind no man so already that promotional poster fails. Also Steven Seagel would just eat everyones lunch and they would all go home. Then theres the fact that you didnt mention Chuck Norris' beard in there anywhere which is blaspheme. Sorry. Production cancelled.

Forest Whitaker was going to be in it but had scheduling conflicts.  He actually really wanted to do it.

Arnold will only have a small cameo. The role that is now Kurt Russel's was written for him but he wouldn't do it.

Oh gosh. That picture of Terry Crews is now burned into my mind. 

























Anyways, sounds like a pretty killer movie.
