Another new addition to the 'Expendables' sequel which is mentioned in the casting report is Jean-Claude Van Damme.
"The Expendables II" is rumored to have added John Travolta and Chuck Norris as new members. The casting rumor came hot on heels that the movie was going to Bulgaria for a filming, and it was brought to attention by David Varod, the head of the Bulgaria-based NU Boyana studios.
David named the two actors in a recent interview with Novinite. He also said original cast like Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke and Bruce Willis will reprise their roles. Jean-Claude Van Damme, who has been linked to the movie for a while, was mentioned as well.
Furthermore, David dished on when the crew are going to begin the filming in the country. "The shooting is going to take place the second week of September," he unraveled. Having strong faith in director Simon West, he additionally gushed, "I believe the sequel will be better than the first movie."
A sequel to 2010's Stallone-directed "The Expendables", "The Expendables II" is slated for August 17, 2012 U.S. release. Other details about the movie are still kept under tight wraps.
