John Woo for Expendables 3?


We briefly mentioned this on our Facebook page yesterday, but here’s the full story. Expendables Premiere is reporting that John Woo would be interested in directing The Expendables 3.

Woo has stated: “I am a big fan of all those guys and I will do it but I want less studio and producer interference. I want to shoot the movie the way I want”. “That’s the difference making a movie in China and Hollywood. In China, The Studio and producer allow flexibility to the director. One thing for sure is, I want it to take place in China. I also have a vision of this big fight between Jet Li and Van Damme but then they have killed him off.

Bring back Van Damme as a twin or make Chow Yun Fat the villain I say. For God’s sake let the man make the film he wants. Hey John, go ahead and use the story I came up with, just give me a credit ;)

Thanks to “Swinger” for bringing this to my attention.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
