The Expendables expands

Director Sylvester Stallone has been expanding the cast of his wonderful sounding action movie in the making - The Expendables; a film which follows a team of mercenaries who head to South America on a mission to overthrow a dictator.

It looks now like the rumoured Ben Kingsley is out [which is fine by me because he's completly vanished up his arse] but the rumoured Mickey Rourke is in [and he passed on Iron Man 2 as well]. I'm also delighted to tell you that everyone's favourite evil Mexican dude Danny Trejo is in as is Eric Roberts, so I think we know who the bad-guys are :)

So all those fantastic actors join Stallone himself, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Forrest Whittiker and Arnold Schwarzenegger in one of the greatest en.... Hang on!!!! ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER!!?? Holy Mother of the sweet good Lord God in Skywalker Ranch!!! Yes! Arnold himself has signed up! The Governor of California will take a day out of his shedule to play... ...Gov. Schwarzenegger! This is the most incredible casting in.... ever. No, nothing has everr come close to how awesome this is...* My fuckin' hands are shaking. It's becomning difgicult to tyope...

The Expendables begins shooting next month for a 2010 release.

*If nothing else this movie will be automatically be given a Whopper Award for best ensemble cast in 2011.
