LOS ANGELES(RushPRnews)11/06/08-The Movieblog.com has heard about a fantastic new Stallone project. This glorious scoop was found scrawled in chicken blood in the war caves of Yahoo: Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham have become expendable. The pair will join Jet Li, who’s in final negotiations, as a team of mercenaries in “The Expendables,” an action film that Stallone wrote and will direct.

The main characters are sent to infiltrate a South American country and overthrow its ruthless dictator to liberate the population. Their team is “expendable,” hired to do jobs that no one else can or will. Principal photography will begin in February in Costa Rica and Louisiana.

Statham, Stallone and Lee as a team of mercenaries……are you fucking kidding me? This is flat out awesome news ladies and gentlemen. This project has officially jumped on my most anticipated list. This takes everything I liked most about Rambo and boils it down into a film of its own.

Lee and Statham are fantastic action stars, but Stallone is a deity of war. With luck Stallone will share his anointing with these two men and they will rise to the challenge of action for a new generation.

This is that film that Inglorious Bastards should have been. I am pumped.
