Jason Statham Talks THE EXPENDABLES 2, THE EXPENDABLES 3 and CRANK 3

Jason-Statham-The-Expendables-2-interview-slice

Simon West‘s The Expendables 2 opens this weekend, and the film has Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) and his gang of mercenaries out for revenge while also having to deal with a baddie (Jean-Claude Van Damme) who wants some weapons-grade plutonium.  I was very disappointed with the first film, but the sequel is a blast.  I think one of the big problems with the original was the lack of a great antagonist.  You can’t have all these huge action stars fighting a no-name actor in the middle of nowhere.  But by bringing in Van Damme (who is one of the best parts of the sequel), the fight scenes are a lot more fun.  The Expendables 2 also stars Jason Statham, Yu Nan, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Liam Hemsworth, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

At the recent Los Angeles press day I got to speak with Jason Statham.  We talked about how he prepared for the sequel, filming in Bulgaria, who would he like to see in The Expendables 3, and what’s the status of Crank 3.  Hit the jump to watch.
