In a recent interview with Novinite, David Varod revealed the names of John Travolta and Chuck Norris as new additions to the cast of director Simon West's movie. Dishing on the filming in Bulgaria, he said, "The shooting is going to take place the second week of September. I believe the sequel will be better than the first movie."
However, original cast like Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke and Bruce Willis are reprising their roles. Recently, Jean-Claude Van Damme has been linked to the movie. The sequel of The Expendables is slated for August 17, 2012.
