and written by Sylvester Stallone and is set for
release in 2010. Filming began on March 28, 2009

mission to stop a dictator who has caused destruction
for the last 20 years. The government sets to
plan the assassination to put an end to the violence.
began on March 3, 2009 and filming has started
on March 28 and will complete in June. Filming
locations include Brazil, Los Angeles, California
and New Orleans, Louisiana.
Jean-Claude Van Damme was personally offered a
role by Stallone, but turned it down. This reportedly
lead to Dolph Lundgren being cast instead. Kurt
Russell also turned down the role of Mr. Church,
the man who hires the expendables. The role accepted
by Forest Whitaker was originally conceived as
a role for Wesley Snipes but later rewritten for
Whitaker. Due to a scheduling conflict prior to
filming, Forest Whitaker was replaced by Curtis
Jackson for the role of Hale Caesar, who was then
in turn replaced by former NFL player Terry Crews
due to negative fan reaction on Aint it cool News.
Stallone wanted Sandra Bullock to play the role
of Agent Diane Lickson yet Bullock's schedule
did not work with the film, and she could not
Ben Kingsley was offered the role of Monroe before
Eric Roberts was cast. The Role may be combined
with that of Agent Will Sands.
The role of the man who hires the Expendables,
Mr. Church, has been very difficult to cast. Initially
offered to Schwarzenegger, he declined in favor
of a smaller cameo in respects to his political
career. The role was then offered to Kurt Russell
whose agent replied that he was not interested
in "Ensemble acting at the moment."
Currently Stallone is looking covertly to find
a big action name to Cameo as Mr. Church with
rumors suggesting that the role has been offered

Gardenzio Stallone (born July 6, 1946), nicknamed
Sly Stallone, is an American actor, director,
producer and screenwriter. One of the biggest
box office draws in the world from the 1970s to
the 1990s, Stallone is an icon of machismo and
Hollywood action heroism. He has played two characters
who have become a part of the American cultural
lexicon: Rocky Balboa, the boxer who overcame
all odds to fight for love and glory, and John
Rambo, a courageous soldier who specialized in
very violent rescue and revenge missions.
During the 1980s, he enjoyed phenomenal popularity
and was one of the biggest movie stars in the
world with the Rocky and Rambo franchises. Stallone's
culturally influential films changed pop culture
history and he has largely enjoyed a career on
the Hollywood A list for over 30 years.
Stallone's use of the front entrance to the Philadelphia
Museum of Art in the Rocky series led the area
to be nicknamed the Rocky Steps. His popularity
in Philadelphia has led to a statue of his Rocky
character being placed permanently near the museum
as a cultural landmark. Stallone's film Rocky
has also been inducted into the National Film
Registry as well as having its film props placed
in the Smithsonian Museum as a national treasure.
He is part of the generation of movie action hero
actors (including Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jean-Claude
Van Damme, Bruce Willis, Steven Seagal and sometimes
Mel Gibson) who were featured in many of the Hollywood
blockbuster action films of the late 1980s and
1990s. (Credit: Wikipedia).
