Last summer Stallone tweeted that he hoped Bruce Willis would have a bigger role in the follow-up, as a "super villain." And now that Arnold Schwarzenegger has moved out of the governor's mansion and expressed an interest in acting again, he could certainly have a much larger role, as well.
So "Expendables 2" has lost its original director and half its screenwriting team--this is shaping up to be the rare sequel that's better than the original.
