Van Damme for The Expendables 2? But not if Seagal is in it!

One of the most eagerly anticipated sequels will be The Expendables, and rumours have already started flying around as to who will be in it.

Most of the original cast will be back, which bizzarley also includes Steve Austin. The list of new recruits continues to get as big as one of Stallone’s biceps.

So far Kurt Russell, Hulk Hogan, Dwayne Johnson, Charlie Sheen, Mike Tyson, Vin Diesel, Mr T and Carl Weathers are just a few of the names mentioned.

The biggest question will be whether Jean Claude Van Damme will star in the sequel, having already turned down a part in the first film. Runour has it he was supposed to get his ass kicked by Jet Li.

Oddly Van Damme has stated there is the possibility but only is Steven Seagal is not in it?

Director Sheldon Lettich has said that JCVD could be joining The Expendables 2.

“JC seems to be leaning towards appearing in the sequel, as far as I know…If Steven Seagal is not in the sequel. From what I’ve heard it, [Steven Seagal won’t be, not because of Sly, but because of producer Avi Lerner, who had a few bad experiences with Steven.”

So even before a punch has been thrown we get our first potential fight!
