Stallone’s “Expendables” sequel gets release date

By Sean O’Connell Lionsgate has announced that its planned sequel to Sylvester Stallone’s “Expendables” is targeting a similar release date … just a few years later.

The sequel, which has writers but no director (yet), will arrive in theaters on Aug. 17, 2012. The bulk of the cast is expected to return, though Stallone has said he will not direct this time out. No idea why. In fact, if I were placing a bet, I’d say Sly is back behind the camera by the time “Expendables 2” begins to shoot.

As for now, story details are being kept under wraps. The rumors had Bruce Willis’ “Expendables” character returning in a larger, villainous role, though at this stage, it’s all guesses, and anything is possible.

The first “Expendables” earned nearly $275 million at the global box office, so a sequel was inevitable. We’ll see what Stallone and crew can come up with.
