Chuck Norris, Van Damme Confirmed for ‘Expendables 2’

As the sequel to Sylvester Stallone’s action-fest heads into production in a couple months, Millennium Entertainment is beginning the process of confirming which of the long list of rumored stars will actually be starring in Expendables 2.

An official cast list for part deux has made its way online and we now know that Stallone’s mercenary crew from the first film (Jason Statham, Jet Li, Randy Couture, Terry Crews and Dolph Lundgren) will all be returning along with Mickey Rourke. Bruce Willis will also be making another cameo appearance as Mr. Church, though it has been confirmed that he will be the main antagonist in the sequel. Arnold Schwarzenegger is slated to return and get more screen time that his cameo in the first film.
The often-rumored additions of Jean-Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris and Scott Adkins have now been confirmed according to the cast list obtained by Moviehole.
Van Damme will be playing the villain with the burly martial arts master Adkins as his cohort. The 71-year-old Norris is expected to make a brief appearance in the movie.
There are still a number of names that have been rumored for the sequel including Taylor Lautner, Christopher Lambert, Christian Slater, John Travolta and Nicolas Cage. Stay tuned as more casting confirmations are revealed as the movie begins shooting this fall.
For now, what are your thoughts on Van Damme and Adkins as the bad guys and who among the rumored, if any, do you want to see in this sequel?
