The Expendables became a hit at the box office last August, and fans have been asking and hoping for a sequel. We still don’t know if Jean-Claude Van Damme or Chuck Norris will be joining the crew, one space just opened up: the director’s place.
The Los Angeles Times is reporting that after both helming and starring in the 2010 summer blockbuster, Sylvester Stallone has started taking meetings with other directors, meaning he might not be directing the sequel.
Also, in the first movie, Stallone wasn’t involved with the writing process, instead leaving it to David Agosto and Ken Kaufman. The story comes from an unnamed source that was “briefed on the project but was not authorized to speak about it publicly.” Millennium Films, the company behind the film, declined to comment.
The first film made nearly $275 million at the global box office and the sequel, would definitely make much more.
