“Con Air” Director to Helm “The Expendables 2”

We know that Sylvester Stallone will not be returning to direct “The Expendables” sequel, despite still starring in the film. The movie will begin filming this summer, which is why Lionsgate has been searching for Stallone’s replacement, and now it looks like they have found him. Simon West (Con Air, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider) has signed on to direct the Sequel. He recently directed “The Mechanic,” which means that he’ll be re-teaming with Jason Statham.

We’ve been hearing a lot about potential new cast members. Several people rumored to appear in the sequel are Jean-Claude Van Damme, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson.

“The Expendables 2” is set to hit theaters on August 17th, 2012.
