Schwarzenegger films just four days on Expendables 2

Chuck Norris also arrives in Sofia

Cameras are already rolling on The Expendables 2 but if you were expecting Arnold Schwarzenegger to have a larger role in the sequel you're going to be disappointed.

The Governator looks set to play only a brief part once more, albeit longer than his role in the first film.

That scene - lasting just one minute and 47 seconds from entrance to exit - saw his character Trent Mauser handle some verbal sparring with Mr Church (Bruce Willis) and Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone).

It was filmed overnight as Arnie had a proper day job back then running California.

At least that means Schwarzenegger should get a little more of the action this time, spending a whole four days on set for The Expendables 2 . Give the guy a break, he’s just about to start shooting Last Stand .

Besides, Chuck Norris has arrived in Sofia so there'll be no shortage of aged hardman filling up the screen.

Simon West's The Expendables 2 opens in cinemas August 2012.
