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, whoâ€™s in final negotiations, as a team of mercenaries in â€œThe Expendables,â€ 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 â€œexpendable,â€ 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 mercenariesâ€¦â€¦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.
