Sylvester Stallone’s latest directorial effort, The Expendables already has a cast which features a who’s who of action movie stars. Stallone, Mickey Rourke, Jet Li, Jason Statham and Dolph Lundgren make up the core of the cast as the Expendables, a group of mercenaries hired to take down a South American dictator. According to the guys over at Slashfilm Bruce Willis has signed on to cameo in the film as a Mr Church, the guy who hires the expendables in the first place. The part was originally written for Arnold Schwarzenegger who had to decline because of his political career but there are still plans for him to appear in the film in a smaller role.
UFC fighter Randy Couture also has a role in the film and UFC recently premiered the first footage from the film inter-cut with advertising for the latest UFC Pay Per View event which you can find after the jump.
There’s not much footage there here what is quite clear is that this film is going to be very, very violent. The Expendable is released on 23 April 2010 and I cannot wait.
