I can say with confidence that the best part of seeing The Expendables, for me, was going to see Scott Pilgrim for a second time after the former film ended. Yes, there were some fun moments (if you don’t get even the smallest amount of enjoyment out of Jason Statham stabbing through a basketball held to a guy’s chest then I don’t want to know you), but it was ultimately a failure. However, it turns out that writer-director-star Sylvester Stallone and his cast will get to try again with a sequel, and with more Bruce Willis in store.
Just as we learn that Die Hard 5 will begin production soon, and speaking to ComingSoon (via CHUD), Willis revealed that he’ll have a bigger role in the sequel, and possibly as a villain, which Stallone mentioned in a tweet a little while back. Also stated was that anybody “who could be considered breathing” would be back, so it looks like we’ll get more Dolph Lundgren (yay…).
