Sylvester Stallone, director of the successful The Expendables
, made his debut on Twitter this weekend
, and right away starting letting loose thoughts and calls for ideas, resulting in some interesting back and forth. I’ve compiled some of them for you here…
TheSlyStallone: Had dinner with Bruce Willis last night. I want him in EXPENDABLES II as a super villain. What do you think?
@TheSlyStallone You need to bring back [Steve Austin] @steveaustinBSR … Raise “his evil brother” from the dead !!
TheSlyStallone: @LieslSchoonraad that is exactly what bruce suggested …damn do I have to battle that monster again!!!!!!!????
TheSlyStallone: I am thinking what would be the most dangerous places in the world to set the sequel?
@TheSlyStallone Harry Knowles here – nice to see you on Twitter. I’m thinking Afgan, Iran or Milan.Other suggestions that were tweeted
: Thailand, China, US/Mexican Border, Africa
@TheSlyStallone Was wondering how you feel about a female character AS an Expendable in the sequel.
TheSlyStallone: @claydog86 I do not not know.. what is your opinion?
TheSlyStallone: The hardest part of making action films is attempting to inject heart and soul.. bullets are easy , emotions are hard. LIKE LIFE ITSELF.
We’re still a ways off from The Expendables 2
getting started, but you can already see that Stallone is kicking around ideas, and remains interested in pleasing his fans (and what is The Expendables
, if not an attempt at the ultimate batch of fan service?). Even before the tweets I would have guessed a bigger role for Bruce Willis as a strong possibility, along with a distinctive new locale, but we can see Sly’s already got the mental wheels a turnin’. I hope he aims some of that consideration towards a passably logical script this time around.
