Sylvester Stallone is said to be moving forward with a sequel to his 2010 hit The Expendables, but 24 Frames | LA Times is reporting that the actor won’t be getting back behind the camera:
The follow-up movie is a priority at producer Millennium Films, where it’s being developed by Stallone, the creative force behind the original. But Stallone, who both starred in and directed the 2010 summer hit, isn’t, at the moment, planning on helming the new movie. Instead, he’s been meeting with directors to tackle the sequel, said a person who was briefed on the project but was not authorized to speak about it publicly.
Additionally, the new movie’s script has been written by David Agosto and Ken Kaufman (Stallone co-wrote the original with David Callaham). “The Expendables” was released last August and grossed a solid $274.5M worldwide from a budget of $80M.
