Schwarzenegger returns for Expendables : A Christmas Story

‘Trench’ reunites with the crew for new spin-off


Well this was a given.

Hearing today Arnold Schwarzenegger will reprise his role as Trench for Millennium and Campbell Grobman Films’ new “Expendables” film.

As previously reported, “Expendables : A Christmas Story” is a spin-off fixing on Jason Statham’s Lee Christmas character, with “Expendables” players Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgen and Randy Couture reprising their roles from the earlier films. Andy Garcia, Megan Fox, 50 Cent and Tony Jaa also also in the cast.

Jason Statham will headline the spin-off

Schwarzenegger has arrived in Budapest to shoot his scenes in the Scott Waugh-directed spin-off, ahead of a Winter commitment to Ivan Reitman’s “Twins” sequel.Hungary currently requires visitors to quarantine for 10-days, which is why the “Predator” star has arrived ahead of the October shoot dates.

Rumors suggesting Millennium changed their mind about doing a Statham-led spin-off and instead went back to doing a more traditional “Expendables” sequel aren’t true. A third sequel to the 2010 hit is on the back-burner at the moment.
