Sylvester Stallone will join Jason Statham and Jet Li â€“ seriously!? Are audiences really crying out for another Statham/Li reunion!? – for a film he’s directing, Nu Image/Millennium Filmsâ€™ â€œThe Expendablesâ€.
The one thing going for the project is that Sly wrote the project â€“ and having seem the knock-up job he did on the most recent instalments of the “Rocky” and “Rambo” franchises it’s clear that he does seem to know how to write.
The movie, says Variety, follows a team of mercenaries on a mission to overthrow a South American dictator.
OK, so it does have a potentially entertaining storyline – but Sly, you can probably afford to lose Statham and Li.
Lensing starts in February in Costa Rica and Louisiana.
