Beloved action icon Arnold Schwarzenegger told real-world Necronomicon USA Today his thoughts on further installments in the Expendables franchise (?) and, surprise! He’s open to making more and more and more of them.
I just think it’s a terrific franchise. I told Sly to write another one or have someone else write another one. A really terrific story. Because I think it’s a great idea to have an ensemble piece with that many action heroes in a movie. Especially if the comedy is really done well. It could be a great story. There’s definitely room for another one.”
Haha. “I told Sly to write another one or have someone else write another one.” Projects of passions, these films. So now Arnold wants a fourth. I’d imagine it would be the same exact formula, but for a fourth time? One would assume they would add even MORE of the action stars we loved as kids, but how many more are there left? You can only regurgitate my childhood into my mouth so many times before I start to notice peculiar flavors. Although, for the record, I’d personally welcome Sammo Hung with open arms and a garbage bag full of popcorn.
PS. The fact that USA Today’s “entertainment” section of their site is called “Entertain THIS!” makes me giggle. SO EDGY. SUCH ‘TUDE.
