- EXPENDABLES 2
Hong Kong star Donnie Yen has been offered a role in The Expendables 2.
Twitch cites "Hong Kong newspapers," saying that the actor/martial artist/fight choreographer met with producer Avi Lerner recently and was offered a "tailor-made" role in the sequel.
Reports have indicated that Jet Li will not be returning for the next installment, and surely Sylvester Stallone and director Simon West appreciate the need to keep their cast box-office friendly for Asian markets -- or more friendly, rather.
"A spokesperson from Yen's company confirmed that there was in fact an offer, and went on to say that Yen may be interested in The Expendables, but because he currently has a number of projects to choose from, he will not decide until he sees if the script appeals to him or not," says the site.
Jean-Claude Van Damme is also considering a role in the film.
The Expendables 2 starts shooting in October.
