Good news for those that wanted more screen time and bigger roles from Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis. According to Deadline, Schwarzenegger and Willis’ roles will be “substantial”, as they will be starring with Sylvester Stallone in The Expendables 2.
In the first Expendables, their roles were more of a cameo spot to satisfy 80s, action fans. Now fans can enjoy their favorite action stars now that Schwarzenegger and Willis have both just closed the deal for the Simon West-directed sequel. Stallone has opted out of the director’s chair, probably due to the stress and punishment of the first movie of having to both direct and star. Filming will take place in October and it will be released on August 17, 2012.
Now that Arnold isn’t governor anymore, he is back to doing movies with his next one being Last Stand, which is being directed by Jee-Woon Kim (A Tale of Two Sisters ).
