Sylvester Stallone Announces ‘Expendables’ Director’s Cut

the expendables banner Sylvester Stallone Announces Expendables Directors Cut

Could we soon be seeing a meaner, bloodier, and (dare I say) more ass-kicking version of The Expendables? The answer, according to Sylvester Stallone himself, is a throat-chopping, YES!

Last week on Twitter, that wonderful fountain of misspelled celebrity wisdom, Stallone said that a director’s cut of The Expendables would be coming out in “about six months.”

To tide over action fiends that propelled The Expendables to more than $180 million in worldwide box office grosses, Stallone also said that Inferno, a documentary about the making of The Expendables, would be “out soon.”

Even though The Expendables didn’t go over all that well with critics (read our review here), the film did manage to connect with its target audience, and I suspect that same audience will be interested in checking out Stallone’s director’s cut.

Personally, I am more interested in seeing the behind-the-scenes documentary.

Remember when Stallone broke his neck on the set of The Expendables? According to Deadline, that incident will be part of Inferno. No word yet on whether the documentary shows Stallone and Dolph Lundgren recreating the final fight from Rocky 4 in Jason Statham’s trailer. Though, that would certainly be awesome.

In addition to talking about a director’s cut of The Expendables, Stallone’s Twitter stream has also provided us with some insight into The Expendables 2. Alongside a myriad of fitness tips about the value of fish in your diet, as well as shout-outs to Jean-Claude Van Damme, Stallone tweeted that he would like to have Bruce Willis play a villain in The Expendables sequel and that he wants to set the film in one of the most “dangerous places in the world.”

We’ll be sure to keep an eye on all of Stallone’s tweets going forward for the latest on The Expendables. In the meantime, feel free to revisit our all-female Expendables line-up, led by super-tough Sigourney Weaver.

  1. I wonder if britney murphy’s character will be in the director’s cut. Really was a shame that her scenes were cut out in what would have been one of her final performances.

  2. She never filmed her scenes, remember that busty porn star looking lady that rode in with Mickey Rourke? That was originally Brittany’s character.

    I love how you guys always find a natural way to shill your female Expendable article in every Expendables news peice, it’s great!

  3. Can this not wait till the DVD/Blueray? Reminds me of a fella named James Cammron and his opus Avatar. I’d rather this be on DVD/Blueray so I wouldn’t have to buy it.

  4. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad it did so well in the box office. But really, it couldn’t wait? *shrugs*

  5. the 1st one did a god job showcasing how corrupt american’s CIA* is, so my bet is the team will be down in the belly of the beast – afghanistan/iraq, where willis has hired the team again (since they did such a good job the 1st time) to help him out (personal bodyguards maybe ?) until the team realises he’s going to double cross/blackmail them so they look like the bad guys ;) (much like they do with the ‘terrorists’)

    * if you disagree then you have no idea wtf is going on behind closed doors… or in this case overseas.

    • jwalka,

      While you, of course, are privy to the inner workings of the CIA…

      Just sayin’


      • vic my friend it doesn’t take a genius (or a spy) to figure out america is only in iraq/afghanistan for 2 things:

        1. heroin (since they (middle east) are the mass producers of the it)
        2. oil

        Of course your government will never admit being involved with drugs etc because they wouldn’t want to look bad in front of the wolrd, much like how the corporate companies behind blood diamonds don’t parade around laughing about how they kill hundreds and thousands of african’s so their wife can drive an aston martin.

        • No one in america drives an aston martin lol!

          • what i should have said was ‘their wife can drive around in a expensive/posh car’. it doesn’t change the fact that these organisations pretty much run governments and can do almost anything they desire.

            • Wow.

              Link or STFU.

              I get so PO’d when people slam America with blind innuendo and mass generalizations.

            • We don’t say posh either lol. We say dope or sick ride. You can’t even get the culture slang or cars right so you’re gonna tell us about our goverment! Hahahahahahaha! Lmfao!

              • @ sully
                wtf does my language have to do with YOUR country wtf are you even trying to say ?

                @ ink
                that’s the good old american spirit – defend your country/government even though they send innocents overseas to get killed for their own benefits. you think CIA documents etc will just ‘pop up’ around the net, its a fact this so called ‘war in iraq’ is all about power and money and in this world money talks. to have even a minute amount of detail in regards to the ‘under table’ business that takes place is enough to make you go missing hence why no one is able to stop these power seeking bastards.

                please think about your so called ‘noble’ government before accusing me of being a liar.

                • Yeah…. we need to put a cap on this discussion before it goes any farther.



                  • hehe just stating facts, he’s clowns are the ones pushing it with blind ‘insults’.

                    • these*

  6. “Expendables 2:Assault on jwalka”

    • Literally laughed out loud. Co-workers looking at me strangely. OK more strangely than usual.

    • right….

  7. @ jwalka
    Calm down dude. I was just making a joke cause you said aston martin and posh and those aren’t things you hear everyday. It was just a joke man. Don’t get you nickers in an uproar. Have a cup of tea and calm down.

    • ‘cup of tea’ heheh you think i’m english because i mentioned an english car hehhe how cute.

      • And posh :). All i can think of when i hear that word is the spice girls lol.

  8. love how certain people always have to have the last word. grow up and get back on topic

    • You talking to me? You talking to me? – taxi driver :)
