    Jet Li Apparently Has Better Things To DoWith a director now in place in the shape of Simon West, the man behind “Con Air” and a bunch of movies that offered greatly diminished returns, and with a release date now set for just over a year from now, "The Expendables 2" will presumably start casting u...

    Simon West Keeps Failing Upwards, Now Directing 'The Expendables 2'

    If you were to draw up a list of the ten worst directors currently working in Hollywood, you'd have to save space for Simon West, who came out swinging with the botched delirium of sub-Bay actioner "Con Air" and has only gone downhill from there. West's films are cacophonous noise tunnels where the human spirit is unwelcome, where cynicism and craven stupidity triumph over creativity and ingenuity. Each one of his films has either a ripe premise, a great cast, or a too-big budget, only to be squandered by his narrow vision and neanderthal caveman storytelling. Yet somehow, Sylvester Stallone, who normally has an ear for his dyed-in-the-wool f...

    Sylvester Stallone Won't Be Writing Or Directing 'The Expendables 2'

    Call it mad genius or a stroke of luck, but Sylvester Stallone seemed to have found a cinematic scratch that wasn't being itched when he got together a bunch of aging action stars, put them in a movie he co-wrote and directed, and smiled to himself as "The Expendables" went on and snatched up $275 m...

    Bruce Willis & Jean-Claude Van Damme To Show Up In 'Expendables 2'?

    Speaking to Access Hollywood during the Golden Globes, Bruce Willis let it slip in a roundabout, not totally confirmed way that "The Expendables 2" was looking to shoot this year and that he may star. "Apparently it's going to happen this year... As far as I know, barring any unforeseen circumstances, but yeah, I would love to be a part of it." Willis generated buzz with a cameo in the first film as the mysterious Church, a character who, in a draft of the script we read, has a surprising backstory that revealed him as the mastermind pulling the strings for the Expendables' suicide mission. Which, of course, ended up not suicidal at all, sinc...
