Hi Bryan here…
I had a hell of a good time with The Expendables. It was kind of an ultimate action film winking at previous action films along the way. All the characters were set up brilliantly in the first film and I look forward to a sequel. But this time, according to the LA Times, Stallone is looking to hand over his directing and writing duties to others.
Stallone co-wrote, directed, and starred in the first Expendables film. That is a pretty hefty work load. He was injured on that film and just had a mass amount of workload, I don’t think he put everything he had into his acting. Who could really?? Well, I think this is a good decision for him to let others write and direct future Expendables films so that he can still be hands on and put all his effort into acting.
Maybe this film will become a franchise where different writers and directors will direct each sequel. That could be awesome and an action junkies dream.
