Stallone not directing “Expendables” sequel?

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Sylvester Stallone has been talking up an “Expendables” sequel ever since his initial adventure opened – and opened big – last August. Most assumed Sly would return to the director’s chair when the next installment finally lensed, but that might not be the case.

David Agosto and Ken Kaufman have been hired to write a second “Expendables,” according to 24 Frames. Kaufman wrote Ron Howard’s “The Missing” and “Space Cowboys” for director Clint Eastwood, though Stallone co-wrote the first “Expendables” script with David Callaham.

But the big surprise in the 24 Frames piece was that Stallone “isn’t, at the moment, planning on helming the new movie” and, instead, has “been meeting with directors to tackle the sequel.”

There are a number of “Expendables” rumors floating around, some of which have been started by Stallone, himself. The biggest one involves Bruce Willis’s character from the first film expanding to become the main villain for the sequel. It’s all speculation at this point, but if Sly is meeting with potential directors, we might hear more very soon.
