It looks like the long awaited pairing of the 80's action icons will be happening after all. Reports are flying all over the internet today that it has been confirmed that Arnold Schwarzenegger will be joining the cast of Sylvester Stallone's new film The Expendables. Sadly it's a small role... he's only slated for one single day of shooting where he will be playing himself as the governor of California.
Also rumored to be joining the cast is the tattooed latino tough guy, Danny Trejo. This is just too cool because the cast already includes Stallone himself, Mickey Rourke, Jason Statham, Sandra Bullock, Jet Li, Forrest Whittaker, Dolph Lundgren, and Eric Roberts.
Unfortunately it does appear that Sir Ben Kingsley has dropped out of the production.
With a cast like this I want to believe that it would be REALLY hard to make a bad movie... but, lord knows I've said that before and been VERY VERY wrong.
We'll just have to wait and see.
