Mickey Rourke Not Returning for The Expendables 2

Mickey Rourke Not Returning for The Expendables 2

Heartbreaking news, I know. We’ll find a way to get over it though. Back in September, although it was said that Mickey Rourke would be returning for “The Expendables 2″ as his character Tool, it ain’t so.

Deadline says Rourke will not be reprising his role in the sequel and is instead, in negotiations for writer/director Martin McDonagh’s “Seven Psychopaths” with Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken.

In “Seven Psychopaths”, Farrell, plays a screenwriter who struggles to find the handle on his script, called Seven Psychopaths. He gets drawn into the dog-napping escapes of his friends (played by Rockwell and Walken). Once the beloved Shih Tzu owned by a psychopathic gangster goes missing, the screenwriter finds himself fueled with all the drama he needs for his screenplay, if he can stay alive long enough to write it all down.

Filming begins in the fall. Rourke meanwhile, will next be seen in the November release of Tarsem Singh’s “Immortals”.
