Though his character was shot in 'The Expendables', his co-star Bruce Willis says he will come back to the second film.
As Sylvester Stallone is planning another "The Expendables" film, there are talks about who will appear in the sequel. Met at the junket for his upcoming film "Red", Bruce Willis who starred in the first film says that Steve Austin, whose character was shot in the movie, will return to the follow-up.
"I talked to Sly and he's going for all the marbles this time, and he's going to get everybody in this time," he tells Coming Soon. "Even Stone Cold Steve Austin who took two bullets in the last film, he's coming back, too. Hopefully, they'll start shooting it while we're young enough to survive."
Stallone himself has previously teased that he wants Willis to be a super villain in the next film. Still, he stated that he wants to introduce new characters in the second "Expendables", saying "I believe this group has to continue to evolve; it just can't become the same people."
Austin was portraying one of the bad guys in "The Expendables", fighting against Stallone's character and his team. He did not make it until the end of the film as he was shot in the process of trying to stop the good guys.
"The Expendables" itself follows a group of mercenaries who is hired to infiltrate a South American country and overthrow its ruthless dictator. Starring other big action stars like Jason Statham, Jet Li, Terry Crews and Randy Couture, the action comedy has raked in $248.5 million worldwide as of press time.
