Expendables 2 adds Chuck Norris and John Travolta

The head of a Bulgarian film studio where The Expendables 2 is to start shooting in September has name-checked a few new actors who will be appearing in the film.

"Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, John Travolta, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke. Who else? Of course, Bruce Willis,” David Varod, CEO at Nu Boyana Studios, told news website Novanite in an interview.

As well as adding John Travolta and Chuck Norris to the list of stars, Varod also talked of director Simon West in glowing terms.

“He is also a name. He is already here and has started working on the film,” Varod said, before adding. “I believe the sequel will be better than the first movie."

It was already widely reported that Jean-Claude Van Damme would play a secondary villain in the film, with Willis the main baddie.

Here's hoping Travolta also pulls villain duty so we can see more of what made Face/Off such a great action flick.
