Come 2010, Sylvester Stallone will be back on the silver screen in yet another action-packed war movie, deemed to be twice as good and more challenging than the last “Rambo.” Jean Claude Van Damme was also supposed to star in “The Expendables,” joining an already impressive cast of action stars, but for some reason he turned the offer down.

In a new interview with Total Film magazine, Van Damme explains why he refused a part that could have potentially put him back on the map. It wasn’t because he wasn’t happy with Stallone’s offer, he says, but because the director could not tell him what the movie would be about. In doing so, Van Damme proves once more that he is, indeed, a changed man, an actor no longer willing to make compromises in terms of his career.

“Stallone gave me a part in his next movie. But I ask him about the subject, about the story.” Van Damme tells the magazine. “He said, ‘You’re gonna make lots of money.’ I don’t want to hear that, I want to hear what was my character. He was unable to tell what it’s going to be.” [Stallone said:] ‘You know, uh, well, the fighting will be good.’ [So I said:] ‘Sly, what is my character?’ So I didn’t do the movie.” the actor further points out.

While turning down a part in a movie that will presumably be the hottest action flick of the next year could be interpreted as a bad career choice, it is nothing more than Van Damme’s way of showing that he is done with putting out films for a quick buck and nothing else, it has been said.
Not sure if that story is bs but i think that JCVD would've been great in the Expendables...and even Seagel has a great comedy on A&E called Lawman

thanks for posting that my friend...i had no idea he was actually asked...looked around a bit more and it sounds like Seagal was asked as well
sounds like the cast got paid very little for the movie...maybe that was the reason for their no-show

still think they're B-rated wannabes though

another article mentions that Stallone is already lining up the cast for the sequel...Kurt Russell's name is mentioned

Just watched Ong Bak 3

There was a little fight sequence in the beginning and then just scenes on Tony Jaa unconscious and people around him praying for the next hour...then another fight with some Crow character, might've been in Ong Bak 2 but I couldn't really remember who his character represented.

Hate when action movies are made too seriously and this is a perfect example. Never give a shit load of money to a stuntman and expect him to make a quality movie...atleast that's what I think. Heard Tony Jaa went crazy and is becoming a monk now after making these 2 movies, too bad considering how talented he is.

2/10

2 for the last fight, same as the one in Ong Bak 2, huge fight with elephants and people getting the shit beat out of them by Tony Jaa, but I don't think we'll ever see the Tony Jaa from the original Ong Bak again.

Couple weeks ago watched "Salt".

6/10

Pretty predictable movie overall.

If you were going to go see it, don't bother. The trailer is essentially the entire movie. Hardly any other good scenes besides those in the trailer.

Kick Ass

8/10

Didn't know what to expect from this movie, but i was pleasantly surprised. Alot of fun and imo that little girl stole the movie, she was great.

Wonder if the sequel will be as good, doubtful!

Kick Ass was surprisingly entertaining. I had low expectations going in, and they were easily surpassed.

i watched it on the weekend. as it went on i found it more entertaining, and cage doing adam west was funny as hell, but there were big chunks, especially in the first act, that i thought were very poorly written. i know it wasn't meant to be deep, but i thought it just seemed really slapped together.

It's becuase people can't read subtitles. I remember making a thread about the unoriginality of the film industry some time back.

i can't figure out if they plan to remake it in english but still situated in sweden, or if they just plan on americanizing the whole thing. not sure which would be worse. these books are very much about sweden - about the weather and the people, about the stark landscapes, about the coffee and cigarettes fetish as a part of that particular national psyche. if they lose that it will change the meaning of the story significantly. if they keep it, you have to wonder how they will do it while everyone speaks english.

The Ghost Writer

a political thriller filled with intrigue and subtle tension...if you're looking for lots action and things blowing up then this film is not for you
a very solid 7/10

Date Night

if you're looking for a warm, silly adventure then you'll enjoy this film...this movie would probably have fallen apart if not for the pairing of Tina Fey and Steve Carell...great chemistry between these two and they literally carry this film on their backs...7/10
