Stallone’s Dirty Dozen!?

Sylvester Stallone will join Jason Statham and Jet Li – seriously!? Are audiences really crying out for another Statham/Li reunion!? – for a film he’s directing, Nu Image/Millennium Films’ “The Expendables”.

The one thing going for the project is that Sly wrote the project – 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.
