Sylvester Stallone Isn’t Directing ‘The Expendables 2’ (Again)

Speaking on behalf of the internet, we are damned close to not caring anymore.

First Sylvester Stallone was directing The Expendables 2. Then Sylvester Stallone was not directing The Expendables 2. Then Sylvester Stallone was directing The Expendables 2. Now he's not. Do-si-do, everybody, then promenade…

Yes reports to the contrary that reports to the contrary are in fact contrary. We think that sentence makes sense anyway. Deadline is reporting that Stallone will not be returning to the director's chair for Expendables 2, although most of the cast will be back for the next go-round. Stallone is also reportedly 'lobbying' for Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis to reprise their cameos from the original film. No word on whether those roles would be expanded(-abled) for the sequel, although with Arnold now free to make movies again it's a much bigger possibility this time.

Crave Online will be back the next time Stallone is directing this damned movie, which we anticipate will be sometime later this afternoon.
