We were “promised” that Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger would have “substantial” roles in The Expendables 2, up from their fleeting, but endlessly cringe-worthy, cameos in the first film. Hurrah?
But according to the man himself, or at least a quote attributed to him by the Global Arnold fansite, Schwarzenegger will only be filming for four days on the film:
I fly in a few days to Bulgaria and stand for four days for Sly Stallone’s Expendables 2 in front of the camera. The rotation for the first real comeback film which begins on the October 17th in New Mexico for Last Stand, an action Film, in which deals with drug smugglers, I play the sheriff.
Why the pigeon English? A translation, I assume. Though of what, I don’t know.
These four days seem to be underway as Arnie this afternoon twitpicced a snap of himself, Bruce Willis and Sylvester Stallone, triple-mugging.
I don’t have a perfect memory of The Expendables (thank you, Lacuna Inc.) but isn’t that the same shirt Schwarzenegger was wearing last time?
Global Arnold also linked to a Bulgarian video of Schwarzenneger on set, complete with a wound make-up applied to his head – pur only evidence so far that his character will see any kind of action in the film.
