The Expendables 2

Sylvester StalloneBefore it's even hit the theaters, The Expendables 2 is already getting the hype machine started for it's already assumed three-quel. Mastermind Sylvester Stallone will continue to make the rounds on the classic action circuit by recruiting supposedly Nicholas Cage in what we all should hope for to be a massively over the top role involving cocaine and wife beating. Also on Stallone's list - veteran actor, director, and icon Clint Eastwood; as well as Harrison Ford, probably because of his work in What Lies Beneath; and to top it all off Wesley Snipes' name has been dropped for a role in it, to capitalize on the already bloated cast.

While we're at it, let's hint at The Expendables 4 in which Stallone will start scraping the barrel. So get ready Casper Van Dien, Lorenzo Lamas, Lou Diamond Phillips, Jeff Fahey, Arnold Vosloo, Rutger Hauer, and what the crap let's get Kevin Costner while we're at it too. Judge Reinhold was in Beverly Hills Cop, so he can carry a pretend gun and say the F-word a lot. We don't need a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, just put all four of them in The Expendables 5.

Hopefully the ensemble cast formula will run it's course before we start having ensemble Nazi propaganda films. But I've heard that's the plan for The Expendables 7.
