The first Expendables movie was a treat for any fan of ‘80s action flicks. For one thing, I brought back many stars from that era and mixed in some of this eras action heroes as well. Plus, fans got Bruce, Sly and Arnold in a scene together. Well, the second movie is underway and a few new names have surfaced (including Chuck Norris!!!) but one of the new names is puzzling. On Friday, August 26, the name Taylor Lautner surfaced.
The Expendables 2stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham and Bruce Willis. It is scheduled to hit theatres on August 17, 2012. Those in the Oklahoma City area can pre-order their tickets here.
Now, what can a movie of this type want with someone who is famous because of the Twilight series?
Lautner’s name was mentioned in a release that also threw in the names Christopher Lambert, Nic Cage and Christian Slater. Now, I can go for all three of those guys. Lambert was The Highlander and starred in a number of B-level action movies, Nic Cage was in Con Air, The Rock and recently appeared in the awesome Drive Angry 3D and Christian Slater was in Broken Arrow. All those movies give them cred.
