'The Expendables II' Release Date Announced


Sylvester Stallone, Jet Li, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Jason Statham


Although Lionsgate has set a release date for the action film, the studio has not yet announced the director and the actors for the project.

Lionsgate has announced a release date for "The Expendables II". The sequel of "The Expendables" is officially slated to hit theaters across the nation on August 17, 2012, almost two years after the first film was released.

As for the actors, most of the original cast are potential to come back, including Jason Statham, Jet Li, Randy Couture, and Terry Crews. Meanwhile, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger are expected to play bigger roles in the action film, rather than serving as cameos.

Sylvester Stallone, who served behind the lens for the "The Expendables", will hand over his helming duty to another director for the upcoming project. David Agosto and Ken Kaufman will serve as the screenwriters. The announcement of the release date hints that plan to shoot later this year is still on track.
